I get that it has a small AoE, but... the fact that I had to manually target lock just didn't make sense in RPG mode. I'm not sure but the way the Tholians like to run around in circles seems to make it miss sometimes. And the fact that it doesn't fire continuously in primary fire is kinda pointless on a weapon with relatively low base damage. I quit using it after a few minutes and switched to a sniper rifle.
Wouldn't the Tholians have a high resistance to a flame thrower? Since they live in thousand degree temperatures?
I tried it on Romulans in the final Romulan FE, did okay AoE damage. But ran out of gas before I BBQed the whole group.
