    I killed a thing with full health 1v1 as a marine with flamethrower, thoughts?

    I really, truly, and honestly believe flamethrower is balanced. It is the only thing that keeps marines in the game when there are less than 5, usually some dumbass has wasted the fuel shooting marines. I have played a ton of games, and the thing can deal with it. The trick is to take a hit from flame and run, slowly draining fuel. With the things movement speed the flamethrower can never catch it. And with less than 5 marines, it is the only thing that can dps a thing fast enough to give marines a chance to kill it before it runs.

    OK, so how I 1v1 thing was a little trick I have never seen anyone do before but have been wanting to try. It was a shit host who started with 5 people. Thing killed 3 of them, it was just me and thing. I found the flamethrower with full fuel, and went to a large room. I set flamethrower next to me on the ground. When i saw thing coming I stimmed then picked up the flamethrower. With stim (and the fact that it wasnt instantly on top of me cuz it had to walk towards me in the big room) I dps the thing faster than it could kill me (I didn't move or kite, just held my ground and burninated it).

    I think if the thing was smarter it could have backed out when it was on half health and healed. BUT it didnt. and stim + flame + a bit of distance between you and thing = you can beat thing 1v1. What do you guys think?

    Good idea. Usually I drop the flame/stim/pick up but this seems like a better idea. Nice job dude

    I see it more like an exploit than a trick. Vic should fix this

    my friend did it no big deal tbh but flame is a bit opd at max fuel it should bring hp down to just short of the things full hp and then auto-drop when the fuel is empty

    Balance is fine. The thing can easily get away even with a stim + flamethrower. We don't need to nerf it for the noobs.

    when a marine stims hes faster than the thing and he also gets a faster shoot speed... so it could be possible to kill him

    Well try it sometime, see if you can kill a running thing with stim and flamethrower. If that is also possible (and the thing had full life at start of battle) this may need a nurf
