Good job takin' down the slime king! Here's something fer ya troubles.
The Fire Flinger is a Pre-Hardmode ranged weapon obtained by completing the King Slime quest for the Hunt Master. Like the Flamethrower, it uses gel as ammunition, but only shoots a single stream of fire that can inflict the On Fire! debuff as opposed the the flamethrower's five per use.
