What do you think Firebug will get...

...in the new balance update?

Some things we can rule out though:

There aint gonna be any:
-flaregun
-molotov cocktail
-gas canister
-blowtorch
-thermal lance
-incendiary grenade launcher
-gas grenade launcher
-toxin
-tesla gun
-lasergun
-a stronger flamer but with green flames

At least according to schneidzekk, wether he is lieing or not ;) So, toss out anything you think the might Firebug get, serious or not. Here are some of my (and others) ideas:

*Buffs to the Flamer, like less weight and more ammo etc
*Branding Iron
*A lighter and spray
*M202 "Flash"
*A frikkin Meteorite!
*Husk's Cannon
*Jetpack
*Some sort of bursty "flame cannon"
*That pipe thingy on the ground which produces a wall of flame (suggested on the forums some time ago)
*Evolving the Firebug into some other perk, like the CBRN Specialist

What else? :)

I didn't see this on the orignal post, but i know i've seen it on different threads, a gas can, to make a flame trail with.

maybe an RC tanker, with 2 liters of petrol, and a timer

have maltov cocktail been mentioned?

or a firebeather, with a bottle of moonshine

Except that all of these have been suggested as well. Well, maybe with the exception of meteorite. Jetpacks have been more of an joke tho.

Been suggested as well, in one form or another. And its molotov..

To be honest, I have no idea what this could be. I doubt its a new weapon cos... everythings been suggested already. Instead of saying "firebug will get a new weapon" they said "firebug will get something new", so Im guessing its not a weapon at all but something else.

Suggested before, yes. Denied, no! :p
And about jokes, well i did say serious or not ;)

True, it could be any sort of tweak to the perk (hence why i said the CBRN thingy as well. That's not a weapon ya know ;))
And the whole point of this thread is joking around and/or maybe getting closer by brainstorming to what it actually might be :)

If the Firebug doesn't get a new weapon, I would really like to see him get some kind of "new ability" to like... ignite any specimen that hits him.

- I don't think this idea has been mentioned, has it?

firesuit - just a suit with bunch of pressure valves in it filled with gasoline ,when holding flamethrower you press alt fire and it will shoot fire 360 degrees from the suit, killing everything standing too close for comfort

or flaming katana (shiskebab , FO 3 reference , RL shiskebab:D)
or once out of ammo he can set enemy on fire just by thinking about it (also alt fire):rolleyes:

in serious manner i think incendiary ammo for his 9mm, one more canister and just tiny little bit more dmg for the fire would do just fine.
idk, yea sure firebug lacks the weapon choices,but its really very powerfull perk,honestly only raged FP can stop firebug
