  • After defeating Slappy, he will drop an already made flamethrower and this weapon's combo card. The weapon is spawned where Slappy dies.
  • A single tap of this weapon can set fire to all zombies in your nearby path, causing them to helplessly burn to death. This is highly effective against Gas Zombies.
  • It is unknown how it can shoot fire if nothing is lighting it.
