Flamethrowers Available for Purchase and Flamethrowers You Can Build

Byzantine empire naval navies in 672 developed the first known flamethrower. The weapon was named “Greek Fire”, and it used a substance which resembled napalm. As technology progressed, other cultures, such as the Chinese and Vikings, would create their own versions. In 1901, the Germans invented the “flammenwerfer”, which would eventually be used in both World Wars. Modern warfare saw the end of flamethrower tech due to the advent of gunpowder.

Flammable flamethrowers remain cool. It’s the coolest weapon ever invented and should be a standard item in any zombie videogame.

The Boring Company provided the trademark “Not A Flamethrower” for Elon Musk. Tesla-Musk’s spur-of-the moment ideas aren’t very well known. You can see this in his attempt to build a metro rail system, which he is currently retrying. Also, SpaceX’s recent failed launches. And the long and tumultuous story of Twitter buying. His flamethrower sort of pales in comparison with real flamethrowers.

DriveTanks.com has created a 2018 YouTube video in which weapons testers compare two different flamethrowers with The Boring Company. They compare the XM34 flamethrower with the M9 military flamethrower. Both are exponential improvements to the Boring Flamethrower, which, in comparison, seems better suited for crème brulee.

Contrary what popular belief says, flamethrowers in 48 states are legal and most retailers will ship there. California or Maryland residents can purchase a flamethrower at most retailers provided they have proof of a pyrotechnics permit. Some sellers will require that you sign a liability release.

It might seem like a cool idea. But, when you click on checkout, it may not be. The truth is that flamethrowers cost a lot. Alternatives to the flamethrower that aren’t as expensive as $700 might be possible, though it may take some MacGyver-ing.

The King of Random hosts make random contraptions in a video for TKOR (The King of Random). The channel has 12.6million followers. One of them is a cheap flamethrower, made from a small fire extinguisher. It’s easy: you simply need to buy an extinguisher. Once it is empty, place a tire valve in the extinguisher. You can light a match or fix a copper tube at the end of the extinguisher for a flammable source such as a torch.

It isn’t as easy as it seems and will not perform the same way as a military-grade flamethrower, but it will do the job. If you enjoy tinkering it can save you hundreds. This allows you to save a lot of money, doesn’t cost you anything, and can even be destructive. Have fun roasting.
