# Marine Action for Air Attack on Flamethrower Weapon The micro needed and progression curve for Flamethower can still be improved further. Having the air attack ability on Flamethrower weapon tied with a Marine Action lets vets better play to that, and it will incentivize using Flamethrower weapon on both trees as it adds a damage buff to the weapon (as a twist, can even increase the damage buff by +5% for every 5 levels the Flamethrower achieves to scale the skill for people using Flamethrower weapon). It's a practical always-on with a 10 second maintenance with minor energy cost. If it's too much micro, I'm fine with the effect duration upped to 12 seconds. It adds a bit more depth to the class. I'm also fine for the napalm explosion on death to be a little less deadly to teammates. Overall, it's a great way to add micro without it being a must-have for newbies. It's like an innate Suppressive Fire or Focused Fire - so it's a relatively familiar concept to players as well but with mechanics unique to the Flamethrower. Any violent objections? # Burst Fire The changes Kith proposed will turn using Inferno vs. Burst Fire use into a greater choice (where it was not before and everyone immediately used Inferno in most situations). And if a player chooses to stick by having Burst Fire (he can still use Inferno when needed), it'll keep Flamethrower weapon as a more viable late-game weapon even after he hit T3 Pyro. It gives more options to the player overall. My only possible concern is because it's a T1 - if its too powerful - it even further strengthens maxed out Order Flamers. But even then, they'd need to pick a Flamethrower weapon to use it so that's a choice for them. # Flamer Shields/Armor Largely agree with Ghost's inputs here. It's also a shorter range tank than a Demo/Assault usually (if using Flamethrower weapon more) requiring it to take more risks so the stats are still a little heavier. Flamer does have the fastest movespeed of the 3 so you can argue he should just micro more - so am okay to hear more feedback on this if there's any violent objections.
