"Yeah, okay... he's dead and all... I just can't help but think maybe... maybe it would have been more a satisfying kill if he was on fire."
Boba Fett, after killing someone with a mere blaster

Flamethrowers were lovely close-quarters weapons that fired a stream of flammable liquid or gas. They worked great in atmospheres with plenty of oxygen, meaning some poor species from planets with a lot of inert gases never got to use them, which is a shame, because flamethrowers were awesome. With certain limitations. 1. They didn't work in space or in certain atmospheres. (The Death Star could blow up a planet, but set it on fire? Impossible.) 2. They didn't work at long distances. 3. They didn't work against inflammable or flame-retardant enemies. But fortunately, Humans and most humanoid species were perfectly vulnerable to fire and tended to live in oxygen-rich environments, making them easy pickings. Jango Fett, after acquiring his first flamethrower, went on a flaming spree of innocent civilians that lasted through most of the game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.

Born without a sense of humor? We are inspired by your courageous struggle. …Just kidding. Get the hell out of here and go read Wookiepedia's "real" article on Flamethrower.

If one could not get hold of a flamethrower, a similar effect could be achieved by imbibing large quantities of gasoline and expelling it out through one's penis, then projecting the stream over a steady flame from a cigarette lighter.
