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.
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.
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.
