Usage & Description
While Tinderbox is good at setting enemies on fire, its low rate of fire and parabolic projectile arc make it ineffective in combat.
If A Train to Catch is active, a Tinderbox will drop after shooting the head of the snowman located in the southern area of Tundra Express, next to the vending machines. Once it is picked up or the mission is completed, it will not appear at this location again.
The Tinderbox's damage is boosted by grenade damage bonuses.
A tinderbox is a small container containing flint, firesteel, and tinder (typically charcloth, but possibly a small quantity of dry, finely-divided fibrous matter such as straw), used together to help kindle a fire.
