1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
*: A flamethrower is always of masterwork quality. Masterwork element is included in price.

You can only make one attack with a flamethrower per turn, as it delivers a continuous stream of fire. However, if you attack as a full-round action, you deal +3d8 extra fire damage for every iterative attack after the first you are entitled to for having a high BAB, to a maximum of +9d8 extra damage at BAB +16.
When using the full-round action attack option, you may choose to 'mow' instead of simply firing straight. You may substitute the line for a cone half its length, centered upon your facing.
Flamethrowers can have an enhancement bonus. For every +1 of enhancement bonus the flamethrower has, its base damage increases by +1d8, its save DC increases by +2, and it gains an additional 5 feet of range.
A flamethrower is a heavy weapon and needs to be readied as a move action before it can be fired. You can move only up to your land speed when you have a flamethrower readied.
You do more damage with a flamethrower if you have the Pyromaniac feat.
