Introduction

The Igniter is a close-range (up to 350 meters) medium special weapon.

Strategy

This flamethrower is the medium version of the light Blaze and heavy Ember .

The Igniter has 350 meters range, with a 5-second reload time and the ability to bypass all types of shielding (except Aegis and Absorber), and has very high DPS for a medium weapon.

However, Igniter shares the same weakness as Ember and Blaze; These weapons are relatively ineffective against fast moving targets, due to slow thier projectile speed. On the other hand, a strength of flame weapons is the ability to bypass most types of shielding, which makes this weapon effective against almost all robots (except Aegis/Absorber shield robots), with or without any form of shielding.

The Igniter can be paired up with an Ember or Blaze for a setup that deals large amounts of damage up close, regardless of whether the target is shielded or not.

Igniter is devastating towards the Ancilot (Lancelot with Ancile) due to it penetrating its main advantage - heavy shielding. Any bot loaded full with Blaze, Igniters and/or Embers will usually take down an Ancilot extremely quickly (despite its huge health pool).

Robots using Igniter should be wary of the Blitz, due to that bot's ability to Suppress the target and then providing shielding for robots like the Spectre, which dominate in firepower but not health. If this happens, the commander should retreat immediately.

Igniter can be paired with lockdown weapons such as Halo and Pulsar to help offset Igniter's weakness in slow projectile speed - a commander can immobilize targets for maximum effectiveness of the flamethrower weapons.
