I love the look and feel of both of the brute weapons, but the Incinerator is my favorite by far. It's just cool the way that the brute wields it and how it perfectly fits his bulky body but when the player picks it up it is ENORMOUS. Animation and design did a great job conveying the sense of weight you feel when you pick it up and start to walk around with it.
The Incinerator is a flamethrower mostly used by Brutes. It has 500 fuel when picked up by Playa and does not require reloading. It can't be saved into the weapon cache or into the weapon wheel. The Incinerator has no overheat.
Ammo Capacity and Damage can all be upgraded 5 levels each, with a separate In The Tank "ultimate upgrade".[imagerefs 1]
That ... thing ... it scares me.

Like the mini-gun, holding an Incinerator makes Playa fireproof.
The descriptions of the weapon's two skins reference the TF2 promo video Meet the Pyro: the default skin's description quotes a line spoken by the Heavy, and the Rainblower's description is the title of a song by The Lovin' Spoonful that plays during the video.
