An Exterminator is a small Hand Flamer that is seldom taken as a stand-alone weapon. It contains only enough fuel for a single shot without having to be reloaded, therefore it is commonly fitted to other weapons to augment the firepower of the user without encumbering them with another weapon to carry, or providing a degree of ranged firepower to those who only carry melee weaponry.[Needs Citation]

Common weapon fits include[Needs Citation]:

Use by Redemption Cults

Exterminators are often given enthusiastically to novices of the various Redemptin Cults across the Imperium since their aim will most likely be more enthusiastic than accurate and so with only a single shot they are less likely to do extensive damage to themselves or their bretheren.[1]
