Employed by the Bothan Spy, the Incinerator releases a stream of high energy particles capable of quickly incinerating an enemy. Although quite powerful, the weapon is hampered by its significant reload time and close-quarter nature. Coupled with the need to reload after every use, the Incinerator finds its advantages in one-on-one engagements.
The weapon works well in combination with the Bothan Spy's stealth ability. If used wisely, the player can sneak behind enemy lines and unleash a surprise attack with his Incinerator. Take care, however, not to engage whole squads of enemies, as the Bothan will be rendered vulnerable when is reloading and unable to turn invisible until finished. This guerrilla-type strategy is most effective at eliminating bothersome snipers, as they are usually operating alone in a secluded area.
- The Incinerator is one of the few weapons in the game that doesn't use energy bolts. Another weapon is Jango Fett's flamethrower.
