Unfortunately i could not find a clear explanation on the Flamethrower. Similar question is already in another Post - with other questions - but never answererd.

We had the following Situation:

Tile 1 - 1 x Marine with Flame Thrower, 2 x Marine with Pulse Rifle, 1 x Infant Alien
Tile 2 - 1 x Infant Alien, 1 x Stalker Alien
Tile 3 - 3 x Infant Alien, 2 x Stalker Alien

The Marine wants to activate the Flame Thrower - using it as a regular Ranged Attack. He wants to aim Tile 3 with the 5 Aliens. But he does not want to use it with the Burning Inferno (A) Special Skill - because with a flamethrower (we all thought) you can not make an aimed shot and you will hit everything between Tile 1 and Tile 3!? - Maximum Damage - RIGHT? The Discussion was - do you hit the 2 Marines and the Infant Alien on Tile 1 as well????

Maybe somebody from PRODOS is able to solve this???

Nothing in the FT rules indicate that a FT hits anything other than the target square and it clearly states it hits everything. I don't believe you can selectively pick targets.

Doesn't mean it was the intent of the rules however :)

Yeah, somebody on Facebook told me today, that the Flamethrower only has the Burning Inferno Action to Attack. These Rules are very clear.

But - honestly. If i fire through a tile with maybe 4 enemies and on the tile behind with another 5 aliens, i think it is difficult not to hit the 4 enemies between with a flamethrower!? ;) Beside that - i have never tried a flamethrower, so maybe i am wrong. :D :D I thought its devastating and killing everything between the shooter and the target.... :D :D

Yeah given the description of the weapon in the fluff under flamethrower you would think it hits everything... I guess you use the shotgun for that :)

Just chiming in a little late to the party... If youre on tile 1 with a FT and tile 2 has 2 guys on it and tile 3 has 3 aliens on it, you aim for tile 3, thats all that gets hit.
