Cav2b Flamer question in CAV Posted December 2, 2004 Am I understanding that with a flamer you can drop a string and bend it around to fit your whim? So for example, 3 CAV end up in a row- like a baddie, one of your mates and another baddy.. like this: U B M B You can just drop a string and curve it around and completely miss your mate? Or in another situation, just whip it around to hit only enemies in a big furball? (Provided they aren't in melee) This just seems like weird and unrealistic behavior for a flamer in my mind... more like a guided monofilament whip or something... I think a flamethrower should be a straight line, or a teardrop shaped template as that is how it behaves, and it reflects the dangers of unleasing a torrent of flaming fuel in the direction of baddies and possibly your friend. Adds an element of strategy as far as positioning units and makes you think if you really want to do that or not. I do like the fact that it kills tough infantry and causes a dis check if it doesn't. (noone likes to be lit on fire) Or simply refer to it as a different weapon system. Any other thoughts?
