I think that would be cool. just use the same paint mix and water they use in a paint mine and Spray it at the enemy with a wagner power painter :smoke:

I can only see this being practical on a tank. Otherwise, someone might get a little too mad at having paint sprayed all over them.

Flamethrowers are not used to burn people in real war. Flamethrowers were used to get the enemy out of their cover by burning it and to flush them out of foxholes. If someone got charred in the process, then that's one less person they have to shoot. It's a good idea but it would be really hard to implement it into a paintball game. I mean yea you could spray people down with a super soaker but who wants to be soaking wet? I think it could be done if you could shoot a mist instead of stream like a spray paint can but the problem is range and how are you going to get a mist to shoot 50ft? Answer these questions and maybe you might have a paintball flamethrower that is usable in the game. Now how would it work? Simple, you spray and area of the field with a bright pink, yellow, orange, any color that isn't naturally found in that area. This basically says that the cover is burned. now the bright color will break up any camo patterns that anyone tries to use in that specific area. If you are hit with the mist you are dead. Even if you get mist on your hand or foot, you have to assume the hand or foot is on fire and will catch your clothes on fire quickly making you a roasted mallow. By covering certain areas of the field with a flamethrower you are making the other team go where you want them to go being able to set up ambushes. Have it where if a building or position(like a bunker) is 3/4s covered in the mist paint then its burned down and cant be used. Players would have 5 seconds to vacate the building or bunker or be burned alive. Its a feasible idea just have to make a mister that can spray that far. I am sure there are other rules that can be applied but to me this is the basics.

Whether you are paintballing with or without flamethrowers your gun is going to get dirty. Certain days you will have your gun literally covered in paint. The people complaining about their gun should realize that they are being hypocritical. However If i were designer of the "flamethrower" i think it would be smart to make the paint more so water based so it comes off a little easier but at the same time not enough to seep into your gun and ruin it.

Just my perspective

what if we had actual flame throwers to set bunkers alite.....
jk thatd be retarded and most insurance policies would not cover your field....
i voted no, but it mite be useful. i never used one, but couldnt u just carry around a mine, point it at some one, and pull the pin? or are they multi directional?

hmmm, why not a flamethrower that uses broken paintball shells and small amounts of paint, basically broken paintballs lying around. and then some very low pressure air can propel it say 25 feet or so? this way:

1. the paint costs nothing, you can litteraly pick it up from the ground to use it

2. it wont get you soaked because its essentialy just broken paint shells and paint which forms a mist

3. all that it needs is very low pressure air to fuel it, which means it wont cost much for air

just a thought

Not true....some days I go with having barely any breaks on me at all let alone just my gun.

A few breaks on your marker is one thing, they can be easily wiped off and your good to go, but having someone drench your entire marker and or mask in paint would make me pretty mad.

It's much more of a big deal.

The closest Ive seen was a giant sized super-soaker squirt gun...one of the huge ones with batteries & a backpack style water tank.
Worked well, but had fairly short range...it was mostly used as a scenario "special effect" to knock out specific bunkers/structures as part of a mission.
Like most special weapons (LAWs, tanks, mines) it requires a little extra effort from the refs to monitor, but it added an interesting flavor to the mission.

I have been looking at the ww2 flamethrowers and you could make one that runs off of an air tank and runs at 100-250psi. The basic system is 3 steel pipes on your back with an air tank on the top. Every thing would fit on a frame pack.

The paintthrower has been done a few times. However if hit by it you'll be wearing paint all day. Also the mask looses some protection.

Nice, mine would carry more paint but the hose and "gun" would be about the same.
