The Torch-It portable welding torch can both weld shut and cut open metal doors, gates, and more. It is a gun-like body with a removable and replaceable oxy-acetylene canister. It can be used as a melee weapon with a quick and charged attack. Alternate fire will turn on the gas and pilot and burn through any lock, door or gate.
As a tool it can be utilised as a somewhat crude improvised weapon for which the Welder is a medium speed, two-handed weapon that deals low-medium damage.
The Welder is purely and simply used in maps where areas are blocked off due to a padlock, switch or door. They can be used to destroy padlocks and unweld doors. Some examples in Objective game-modes include the Padlocked gate on Chinatown or the Kitchen Door in Cabin. In Survival Maps, Welders are featured to destroy padlocks blocking access to secret caches of supplies which will be invaluable to Survivors in later rounds. These examples include the Tool Shed on isolated and the Gunshop and Pharmacy on Northway.
As a weapon, it is generally sub-par, it is moderately slow, delivers fairly low damage compared to other more, proficient melee weapons and can use up alot of stamina with charged attacks. It isn't very effective in killing Zombies and thus it is better to find a more suitable weapon after its use has been achieved.
