So I was running over peds at the docks in Port Tudor, Alderney, today and took aim at a ped I struck with my car that didn't quite die on impact. I had the combat shotgun equipped and as he lurched away, hunched over, I fired a round at him but missed and it hit the propane cylinder on the back of a forklift, which then spewed out a nice stream of blue and yellow flames.

I have shot the propane tanks on the back of the forlifts before but never have they shot flames out. I tried this with the combat pistol and nothing happened, so I re-equipped the shotgun and it happened again. I guess the pistol doesn't have enough penetrating power whereas the shotgun does. Its pretty sweet and looks pretty realistic. Try it for yourself, its fun. Also try shooting it multiple times while the flames are coming out its pretty funny. The forklift always catches on fire and subsequently explodes after shooting the tank but its a neat display while it lasts.

This works with any gun... I aim at the vent of the gas tank... It always works. I was suprised at first when I came accros this as well. I was amazed about the detail of the pressure coming out of the tank. There are more of those things...

You can also shoot larger gas tanks for infinite flames. Usually they say "RON" on them.

There are also water tanks which are somewhat less fun cool.gif .

Yeah cool effect though. I think someone should mod the PC version so that those flames come out of the back of cars. Or your gun. Would that be sweet or what?

thanks for the info guys, didn't know it worked w/ the pistol, i'll try that later and i'll look for the large tanks.

i knew it worked w/ other things, like fire extinguishers, the metal heat radiators in your apartment (they shoot steam out of them), etc, and i knew you could blow up regular propane tanks like a bomb, guess i just never paid much attention to the forklift before.

@yomomsmokes420 - where are the large tanks? are they by the docks as well?

i would think it would be hard to get a ped in the flames that pertrude from the tank simply b/c to get the flames you have to shoot the tank which usually sends peds running...unless you pushed one of them down, shot the tank, and as they got up pushed them into the flames. but you would have to time it just right b/c the flames don't really last very long and some peds take their sweet old tme getting up from a fall.

You can find the large tanks all over Alderney if you go south. Since Alderney is seen as the industrial sector...

It's a shame you cant hook up the trailer with the the truck. Imagine all of the destructive crap you could do with the fuel tankers.

no...i went to suothern alderney yesterday and tried it...basically the really large oil storage tanks themselves have little response to gunfire...i did notice when you shoot them they leak oil out of them which was a cool effect...but if you shoot the piping that goes into/out of the large tanks it will produce a flame

No doubt! I was so disappointed the first time I tried to hook to a trailer and realized that it wouldn't do it.
