For the weapon of the same name in Fallout Shelter, see Burnmaster (Fallout Shelter).
It is not affected by the Pyromaniac perk, essentially being a flamer that automatically bestows the perk on the wielder while using it.
Burnmaster can shoot a total of about 139 units of flamer fuel, the equivalent of 3 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

This weapon can be found in Franklin Metro utility, a tunnel system beneath Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro. It is advisable to bring the ghoul mask if one has obtained it, as the Metro is overwhelmed with feral ghouls, which depending on the player character's level and installed add-ons, may mostly consist of glowing ones and feral ghoul reavers.
When you have managed to find Franklin Metro Utility in Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro (it's all the way in the back, down the tracks past the mezzanine), follow that until you get to where the tunnel goes down into the water. Go into the water and then make a left through a broken passage in the tunnel (if you do not have a radiation suit, carry on past the broken passage and keep going straight down into the water, there is a box with a mini nuke on top and inside the box is a radiation suit). Swim to the right until you find a ramp that goes up. Continue down a hallway filled with radioactive barrels. It's advised to bring along a bottle of Rad-X, some RadAway packs, as the area has moderately high levels of radiation along with numerous glowing ones (and reavers if one has the Broken Steel add-on). At the end of the tunnel there are five ammunition boxes filled with flamer ammunition and the Burnmaster.
The Burnmaster does not benefit from the Pyromaniac perk, but it does the same damage as a regular flamer when the player character possesses the perk.
PC Playstation 3 Xbox 360 This weapon does not receive a bonus from the Pyromaniac perk. This may have been intentional since it deals 50% more damage. [verified]
