HOT Loaders fire globs of flaming goo and grenades from a distance, and use a flamethrower when up close. They have fuel tanks on their backs that blow up like grenades when shot. They are fire-resistant, but vulnerable to explosive attacks. They explode when destroyed with a chance of setting nearby targets on fire rendering close range attacks dangerous. Their final explosion takes place after they are destroyed and close range healing effects such as Buzz Axe Rampage are negated.
