OverviewEdit

The Fire Extinguisher is a special weapon found only on select levels, and which can be used to extinguish fires and allow passage. It deals no damage to players or enemies, but will extinguish them if they are on fire.

AdvantagesEdit

  • Allows passage through areas on fire
  • Can extinguish burning marines
  • Very large clip
  • Conserves Flamer ammo

DisadvantagesEdit

  • Cannot harm enemies, but may extinguish them
  • Superfluous when a Flamer is available
  • Occupies a weapon slot

DescriptionEdit

Filled with a multi-purpose flame supressant, this item can be used to extinguish any kind of fire encountered in the field.

StrategyEdit

  • All levels that feature fires have Fire Extinguishers in very close proximity; while you can use the Flamer's alt-fire to also extinguish fires, using the Fire Extinguish will conserve the former's ammo. Keep in mind that once a Fire Extinguisher is out of ammo, though, you cannot reload it or get a new clip.
  • Don't forget to go back and retrieve your weapon after you're done with the Fire Extinguisher.
  • Do not use near burning aliens as it does extinguish them as well.
  • The Fire Extinguisher can extinguish Incendiary Mines that have gone off.
