* Most [[FireBreathingWeapon flamethrowers]] use backpack tanks to hold their fuel. They are very visible and draw fire from enemy forces, and the fuel inside can be ignited easily if it leaks out (the wielder certainly wouldn't want either of those things),[[note]]Unlike Hollywood portrayals, an explosion won't happen from simply ''shooting'' the tank.[[/note]] which is one of the reasons flamethrowers are no longer employed in combat. They are also very heavy (with some weighing up to 60 lb when fully loaded), yet can only fire for a total of 15 seconds at most before running dry. Flamethrowers have been largely replaced by shoulder-fired rockets and missiles in the bunker-busting role, though they find use in non-combat functions, namely [[MundaneUtility burning down brush and forests]].

* ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'': "Black Rose" {{Plasma Cannon}}s are powered by a miniature fusion generator carried on the back. In fact they're one of the big weaknesses with the design, the connecting hose is fragile and if ruptured hot plasma spews out, and unlike larger reactors if magnetic containment is breached the plasma touches the casing for a split second before dissipating and superheats it, causing an explosion.

** The Russians developed a flame thrower with a fuel tank that resembled a standard ammo pouch, and built the nozzle to resemble a normal rifle. Flame weapons have since been outlawed by the Geneva Convention.
*** However though people still use them anyway often claiming MundaneUtility. The most infamous case is how the US still uses phosphorus bombs for signaling, signals which conveniently also burn and poison the target. In terms of flamethrowers, they still use them to clear brush and Forrest lands, sometimes containing the enemy.
* If you don't have the fancy stuff, you can easily macgyver one by emptying your backpack and duct-taping an ammo box or two to it. If you have a backpack with a frame, remove the sack entirely.

* While it's normally not a standard government issue accessory, many modern machinegunners ''do'' prefer to keep their ammo in the backpack, especially when they use a heavier belt-bed gun, as the standard belt box makes the weapon both too heavy and cumbersome, and stores too little ammo for many of them. There's a number of both custom-built and commercially available ammo backpacks and belt sleeves that allow the soldier to connect their MG to the pack for a much longer belt than possible with the issue belt boxes.
