| "The XM42 is classified as a "light flamethrower", which means that the weapon carries its own fuel supply, as opposed to needing to carry a fuel tank on your back or in a bag. Despite the apparent small size of the fuel supply, and the fact only "light" fuel (gasoline-diesel) can be used, this model of flamethrower can last longer on a single tank than any other model available in the Mazes! The smallest tank available has a capacity of 30 seconds, with larger tanks available. If you're looking for a fun introduction to flamethrowers, this is probably the best purchase you can make."|

The ION XM42-M (also known as XM42-M or simply XM42) is a light flamethrower, which can be reloaded using XM42 reload packs.
- When equipped with the XM42 backpack tank (3 gal), the XM42-M becomes a heavy flamethrower, and the tank may either be carried in the inventory, or in a Primary weapon slot. The base initiative speed of the weapon does not change (it remains 18).
