The Flamethrower is an unlockable weapon in Silent Hill 3.
How to unlock
After completing the game at least once and killing more monsters using firearms, the Flamethrower will be available for use in an Extra New Game. Heather Mason can find the Flamethrower on the counter of Helen's Bakery on the second floor of the Central Square Shopping Center. The Flamethrower has infinite fuel, though its strength is initially weak. Its potency can be increased by obtaining a 10 star rating. It is used much like the Submachine Gun, with Heather standing in place and aiming the direction of the flames.
The Flamethrower is the firearm counterpart of the Beam Saber. After unlocking the Flamethrower, the Beam Saber will be unlocked automatically after completing the game again.
- Finding the Flamethrower in the HD Collection awards the trophy/achievement "Flame On".
- On top of the bakery counter is a flyer that reads: "Crispy toasted bread right to your very door." If the Flamethrower has been unlocked, the flyer will have changed into: "Crispy toasted DEAD right to your very door."
- The Flamethrower appeared in the latest spin-off game, Silent Hill: Book of Memories.
