Tips and tactics
- Since worms can "Slide" on fire, this is a very useful weapon for making enemies slide down a slope into the water.
- Sometimes useful for blowing up Oil Drums to deal extra damage to the enemy, in addition to the fire released from the Napalm strike.
- As this weapon uses the mouse cursor, it can be used to point something on the map to other players.
Criticisms, Problems and Weaknesses
- Fire is very wind sensitive, so be careful where you place the target.
- The fire covers a wide area, and it can be hard not to damage your own worms.
Tricks and glitches
- A Napalm Strike may be fired without aiming.
- It's possible to preselect the Napalm Strike target in mid-jump.
