I'd like to fight but I can't see anything

Is there anyway we can get the dwarf’s flamethrower animation changed as if one is used near you, you can’t see a rat 1 foot infront of you. All you see is flames and it obscures your view of everything. It’s extremely irritating.


i was about to make a joke about how you shouldn’t be playing vermintide if you are blind… but it would be pretty lame

i honestly think this is the intended design. when you are using a FLAMETHROWER, you shouldn’t be able to see anything in front of you.


Dont use the flame thrower if it’s irritating you , maybe ? :man_shrugging:

He’s not the one using it, so how could he stop using it?

He’s not the one using it. It’s a dorf using it while someone’s in melee and blinding everyone. It doesnt happen with the wizard but for some reason, they felt dorf flamethrower needed to be a solid block of colour that blinds everyone who wants to play melee.

Not an issue on champ ofc but its all too common on vet.

I’m glad at least some people here can read :joy:

had a champion game with a dorf that pretty much rushed forward eagerly with his flamer EVERYTIME there was a horde call. it was a beautiful thing to see. all 3 of us would cover the flanks, and he would just melt anything coming through the bottleneck.

Apologies for my previous reply , was early in the morning and i misread so lemme quickly answer your post for you : Learn proper positioning and the flamethrower wont bother you . Chances are your positioning is off if you’re fighting in flames . Better ?

Trust me the effect was far worse in the closed beta…Either ask your dwarf to shoot from a different angle or kick any player using this weapon. One of the wizard’s staffs has a similar effect. Its pretty to look at, but in melee combat can cost you you life. I find both weapons interesting gimmicks, but they are not needed for a good team. Dwarf controls waves far better with hammers or a shield. Wizard is far better at DPS than crowd control.

really? obnoxious and terrible suggestion.

a good team with will find it useful for horde clearing. sure, not needed, just like any other singular weapon.


The Drakegun for the Ironbreaker is a great weapon for clearing trash hordes. Might not kill specials, but it thins the crowd so your team can have an easier time with the specials.
