Fire Cannibals, also known as Firemen or Fire Thrower Cannibals, are a unique ranged type of cannibal.

Gameplay[]

They are usually sent to attack the player's base. They can however occasionally be part of day and night patrols, if the player has highly raised hostility.

The fire cannibal carries a fire torch with several tennis balls hanged on his belt. They will attempt to throw the lit tennis ball at the player if he is a certain distance away from him, inducing burning damage. If the player is in immediate striking distance, the fire thrower will attack with its torch instead.

Fire cannibals often lack precision, which can be used to the player's advantage if there are multiple nearby cannibals.

There was a rarer but deadly variant called the dynamite cannibal, carrying and throwing dynamite sticks.

Combat[]

Fire cannibals should be killed in priority during an attack as they can ignite trees and cause damage to the player's base. One strategy is to rush in and kill them via melee weapon. Keeping close quarters will prevent the fire thrower from launching projectiles at the player.

Ranged weapons, especially fire arrows are effective, though explosives and the flare gun might be better saved for stronger opponents.
