The Ignis produces a stream of intense heat.

The Ignis is a Grineer flamethrower used by Grineer Scorch and Hyekka Masters, unlockable through Chem Lab Research in the Dojo. The Ignis releases a long reaching continuous spray of flames in a frontal area of effect (AoE), thus making it exceptionally useful for handling large crowds, albeit at the cost of high ammo usage and a fixed range.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 7,500.

This weapon deals Heat b Heat damage.


  • Innate Heat b Heat damage – effective against Infested and Cloned Flesh.
  • Good status chance per second.
  • Sprays in a frontal area of effect (AoE), allowing it to hit multiple enemies at once.
  • Large magazine size.
  • High maximum ammo capacity.
  • Decent ammo efficiency, if utilizing the AoE correctly.
  • Second longest reach of all range-limited weapons at 40 meters.
  • Has innate Punch Through depth of 2 meters.
  • Damage does not fall off with radius.


  • Low damage against single targets.
  • Low critical chance.
  • Damage cannot be increased with Impact b Impact, Puncture b Puncture or Slash b Slash mods.
  • Damage decreased to 0.50x unless hitting directly with the central beam, which only has a reach of 20 meters.
  • Has a large "blind spot" between 25m and 35m where enemies cannot be damaged with continuous fire. This is lessened somewhat with Firestorm.


  • Ignis, compared to the Ignis Wraith:
    • Slightly higher base damage (27.0 vs. 25.0).
    • Lower status chance (25.0% vs. 30.0%).
    • Lower crit chance (5.0% vs. 12.0%).
    • Smaller magazine capacity (150 vs. 200).
    • Smaller ammo capacity (750 vs. 800).

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Ignis' hit detection is composed of three parts:
    • A perfectly accurate central beam that reaches up to 20m. This beam has a 2m Punch Through.
    • A 5 meter spherical AoE that appears at the end of this beam.
    • A 5 meter hemispherical AoE that appears at 40m (that is, a 5 meter spherical AoE with the far half cut off).[verification needed]
  • The central beam will deal the listed damage of the weapon. Both of the AoEs will deal 0.50x the listed damage.
  • When the Ignis begins firing, it creates an initial "puff" with an extremely wide angle that will deal a single tick of damage. This can hit enemies that the continuous beam and AoEs would otherwise miss.[further experimentation needed]
  • When combined with other elemental mods, such as Cold b Cold, it will no longer deal the original fire damage, losing its high bonus versus Light Infested (+50%). Thus, it is advised to add Toxin b Toxin damage to create Gas b Gas damage to kill Light Infested. Add Electricity b Electricity + Toxin b Toxin to create Corrosive b Corrosive damage, and add Cold b Cold to create Blast b Blast damage to kill Heavy Infested.
  • As of Update 11.3.3, the fire rate can be modified with mods.
  • Shade's Ghost can activate even if the Ignis is being fired, so long as the fire key is held down upon Ghost's activation.
  • The Ignis can destroy rockets launched from a Bombard's Ogris.
    • This only works if the Ignis deals Heat b Heat or Blast b Blast damage. Building for Radiation b Radiation or Gas b Gas will not produce this effect.
  • The Ignis can deal headshots and target enemy weakspots.


  • Hellfire and Wildfire apply fire elemental mod damage to the weapon. They do not act like base damage mods, but rather stack with the innate Heat b Heat damage of the weapon.
  • Adding Corrosive b Corrosive, Magnetic b Magnetic, or Gas b Gas in addition to Heat b Heat damage makes the Ignis very effective versus Grineer / Corpus / Infested, though less effective against Corpus Proto Shields.
  • It is a wise idea to equip a long-ranged weapon in your secondary slot when using the Ignis.
  • It is unwise to have Specters equip this gun as they only fire on targets when they are ~10m away from them.
  • The AoE of the Ignis is treated as Punch Through due to the flames being considered explosions.
  • Combustion Beam can also be equipped to the Ignis, causing enemies to deal damage on death to other nearby enemies. This aids in crowd control and quicker elimination of weaker and closely-grouped enemies.
  • Sinister Reach can also be equipped on the Ignis, greatly increasing the range of its central beam. This will also move the two AoEs forward by the same distance.
  • The radii of the two AoEs themselves can be increased with Firestorm.
  • Due to its nature of AoE, this weapon is particularly effective against destructible projectiles.
  • Adding Heavy Caliber as a second Serration results in an increase of damage. The reduction of accuracy will cause the beam to slightly waver, which is a negative for most weapons, but is arguably a benefit for the Ignis as the effective AoE spread will widen slightly.
    • The loss in accuracy is small enough that the central beam will still land headshots consistently at maximum distance, even with Sinister Reach equipped.
  • Ignis starts its damage over an extremely wide angle, reaching further away from the player over a split second as the Fire button is held. This explains the single tick of damage being dealt on enemies that the continuous fire would otherwise not hit.
    • This can be taken advantage against melee units, especially the Infested.
  • The Ignis is designed to deal with crowds, spreading low damage but hitting all enemies in range, where most other weapons (besides explosive dealing AoE weapons) are single or multi-target. In other words, the larger the crowd, the better the weapon becomes at distributing damage compared to most other weapons.
  • The Ignis is very useful in reactor core Sabotage missions, as its punch-through and wide attack area allows it to destroy several exposed reactor cores at once.


  • Ignis is Latin for "fire".
  • Prior to Update 17.8, the Ignis' appearance was simply a modified Grakata.
    • Oddly it wasn't just the appearance, as the update that changed the model and reload animation of the Ignis made the Grakata reload as if it was the Ignis.
  • The Ignis was first shown in the developer Livestream #5.
  • The volume of fuel the Ignis carries would be impossible in the real world using today's technology, as the duration of continuous fire of the entire magazine lasts far longer than actual flamethrowers. This implies that the fuel used (possibly derived from Detonite) is extremely efficient. 
  • The front portion of the barrel heats up through continuous firing of the weapon, visible after roughly 25 units of ammo has been expended.
  • Changing the default Heat b Heat damage of the Ignis modifies the visual effects of the flame released depending on the new element: Blast b Blast damage causes the barrel to emit sparks, Radiation b Radiation damage generates bolts of electricity within the flame, and Gas b Gas damage changes the flame into a thick cloud.
    • ​In earlier builds, this change overrode any color customizations to the Ignis' flame color.


  • Ignis in Codex as of Update 17.8.
  • The Ignis' appearance prior to Update 17.8.
  • Heavy Caliber Example. Main "Stream" will wobble.
  • Heat: Regular scorching flames.
  • Blast: A stream of crackling orange and blue flames.
  • Radiation: Produces an cyan electrical stream.
  • Gas: Sprays a thick cloud of sickly-colored gas.
