The M2 flamethrower was an American man-portable backpack flamethrower that was used in World War II. It was the successor to the M1 and M1A1 flamethrowers. Although its burn time was only around 7 seconds and the flame was only effective out to around 20–40 meters, it was still a useful weapon. However, with the arrival of flamethrower tanks, the need for flamethrower-carrying infantrymen to expose themselves to enemy fire was greatly reduced.

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault[]

Useable[]

The useable flamethrower was cut from the game, but it can be spawned using the console. It doesn't have a complete model, and it also lacks sounds and flame. Despite the fact that there is no flame, you can see an increase in brightness when shooting at nearby objects.

Unusable[]

On Tarawa beach an US Marine equipped with a flamethrower can be seen, where he runs towards a Japanese Pillbox and sets it on fire, but soon after he is killed by an artillery shell.

Trivia[]

  • If one looks closely, the players can see that the hose is not attached to the tank, nor is a hose visible.
