“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
A Pyrotech Heavy is armed with dual flamethrowers on their arms. They attack with a long-range fireball barrage, leap into the air to rapidly close in onto their targets, or spray the field with pools of flames. Stepping in the flames at any time will deal continuous Incendiary damage to the character. A Pyrotech Heavy is one of the more dangerous Maliwan Heavies due to their element helping deal considerable damage to any character with a depleted shield.
The pack on a Pyrotech Heavy's back is his weak point. Like other Maliwan Heavies, concentrated fire will cause it to explode and instantly kill the Pyrotech Heavy. Destroying the pack causes an explosion that leaves huge pool of napalm to be left in the Pyrotech Heavy's place, which will damage anyone who steps inside.
It is best to keep the character's shield at half or max capacity during any fight with a Pyrotech Heavy due to incendiary damage, and characters should keep a cautious eye out on the floor to assure they do not strafe through napalm puddles. Because of their incendiary element, Pyrotech Heavies are resistant to incendiary damage. As such, characters should focus other elements on them in order to defeat them as easily as possible.
