The Napalm Launcher (also known as the Incinerator) is a weapon in Blood and Blood II: The Chosen. It serves the purpose of a rocket launcher seen in many first person shooter games, but the severe splash damage makes it impractical for rocket-jumping.

Blood[edit]

Napalm Launcher from Blood

"This monstrous weapon launches a huge ball of flaming napalm at an extremely high velocity. If the initial explosion doesn't kill your enemy, the burning probably will. Best used with extreme caution, especially in tight areas. [With the Plasma Pak] the alt-fire launches several napalm projectiles, covering a wider area but also chewing up a lot more ammo."
--Blood Manual

The first possible use of the Incinerator is in the first episode, first level, in the Super Secret. Otherwise it can first be found in E1M4: Dark Carnival.


AMMO TYPE: Gasoline
REGULAR FIRE: Shoots a burning ball of fire
ALTERNATE FIRE: Consumes massive ammo to lob a fireball into the air, which bursts on contact, causing splash damage and spawning littler fireballs which bounce around and do the same

Development[edit]

The napalm cannon was one of the last weapons added into the game according to designer Nick Newhard:

"We just added the napalm cannon. It uses destructible gas cans for ammo and launches fiery missiles that leave smoke trails that do massive concussion and fire damage in a large area of effect. That was a mouthful. "
--Nick Newhard

Blood II[edit]

"Large, heavy, and exceptionally brutal, this weapon fires flaming blasts of incendiary napalm. Activating the alt fire releases a cascading series of bouncing explosions lovingly referred to by those in the business as 'rolling thunder.' Make sure you don't set this baby off in close quarters, or you'll end up the main course in your own private weenie roast."
--Blood II: The Chosen Manual

The Napalm Launcher returns with a tighter control, but less spectacular display of pyrotechnics. This weapon is Gabriella's second weapon of choice.
