They ruined the Fire in this game.

I get that a jungle won't burn as well as stuff in a dry desert like in Far Cry 2. but its just not nearly as cool. it even looks worse than it did in the 2nd game. anyone else disappointed with the fire in this game?

In all honesty, yes i am a little.
Also, could have sworn you could see which way the wind was blowing in FC2 and set an area on fire as part of your strategy. Just seems completely random now.

I was, until I threw a molotov in a shack full of baddies. Lit the entire shack up, plus all the surrounding vegetation.

I do miss brush fires, but I understand why there can't be.

I'm more butthurt over the flare. I miss the parachute, the fact that it can light up the night, and that it has a secondary explosion. This flare is pisspoor, and not even worth the slot if you got molotovs.

The fire was my favorite part in FC2 and had so much fun taking out whole bases with just that but after using Molotov cocktails a few times I have no more interest in using it here.

Still early in the game so I'm hoping that I'm just missing something or more "flammable" areas open up.

Yep. I was messing around with the flare, and was disappointed with it. Quickly got rid of it.

And what about the Lanterns. Remember in FC2 when you would shoot a lantern and it would blow up and set stuff around it on fire. agh how i miss that. that was the first thing i tried when i got a gun and was heartbroken to see it still there after i shot it.

Barrels, too. Unless I'm mistaken, I haven't seen an exploding barrel yet.

Love this game to death, but the fire element is certainly my biggest gripe as well. Who cares about screen tearing and low FPS. I want to burn pirates like the plague that they are!

There's truckloads of exploding barrels, but mostly in story mission areas.

Ah, thankeesai. I still haven't done the mushroom mission yet, so that may explain my ignorance.
