For an overview of flamethrower models, see Flamer.
For the weapon of the same name in Fallout Shelter, see Burnmaster (Fallout Shelter).


The Burnmaster is a unique flamer found in Fallout 3.


Main article: Flamer

Without the Pyromaniac perk and Broken Steel add-on, this is the most powerful flamer.


Burnmaster can shoot a total of about 139 units of flamer fuel, the equivalent of 3 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

It's found in the Franklin Metro utility along with flamer fuel.


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.
