Why? It appears that its modded to be a flame thrower. Shouldn't be too hard to make

Plus, it doesnt appear to be a special effect... the trailer shows the autococker actually throwing flames.


I laughed when I saw the movie poster:

Click here. ITs big, and I'm too lazy to find a smaller one.

Its far more feasible then other movies that have had paintguns modified to shoot bullets.

Honestly, the only thing unbelievable about turning that gun into a flamethrower, is using propane as a fuel source... proper napalm-style fuel has to be used to make it effective as a weapon. And of course, you'd have to completely re-work the mechanism of the marker to have it function correctly, but the required mechanical parts are basically there. A functional configuration would of course look completely different, and require two pressure vessels (one for fuel, one for pressurized gas/HPA).

IMO, propane is completely believable in the context of the movie... being that its mostly thrown together with minimal work.

For example, if the pull-pin was fixed somehow to the back-block, it would hold the hammer forward whenever the trigger was pulled back. All it would take for this propane flamethrower to work is a long 1/4" screw and some washers.

Hollywood uses propane-powered replica guns all the time, as they are much safer then blank-firing guns. Yes, yes, gasoline makes a much better flame thrower because you get much more range. Propane burns up only after a few feet.

But like I said, thats in the context of the movie. Anyone, say this video of a real propane-powered flamethrower you can buy:

Yea I'm aware of the uses of propane ground-torches for racetracks, ice/snow and weed removal, making one of those out of a paintball gun would be fairly pointless, especially if using the stock valve... even if it's held open all the way it has poor flow for low pressure gas like propane (100 PSI or less once it begins to cool down in the tank).
