Blowtorch - The Thing (2002)
The Blowtorch, also known as Compact Flamer in the game's instruction manual, is an extremely short range weapon. It can be used to kill a larger Thing enemy, but a hit-and-run approach should be used. A blowtorch can also be used to ignite fuel spills. This, the flamethrower and the flame grenades are the only weapons in the game capable of killing the Thing. The Blowtorch's ammunition is represented by a fuel meter, but Blake changes canisters occasionally after spending some fuel.

Design

The Blowtorch appears to be based on a regular butane handheld blowtorch, consisting of a canister with a with a grip handle with a trigger attached and an oversized, extended nozzle with holes.
