"After [we sell] 50k [Boring Company] hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower", he tweeted.

Before everyone panics about the dangers of Elon Musk's flamethrowers, however, it is pertinent to note that The Boring Company flamethrower is not really a full-fledged flamethrower.

His Boring Company - yes, that's the one that digs tunnels - has released a flamethrower for some reason that probably has more to do with branding than a pivot to manufacturing more kinds of destructive devices than just big drills. The Boring Company's mission is to excavate a low-priced but fast-digging tunnel through Los Angeles to help alleviate its notorious vehicle traffic.

Musk hinted in a tweet previous year that his new Boring Company would begin developing a flamethrower once he sold enough hats to get the fledgling hole digging company off the ground, or in the ground: "Hats sold out, flamethrowers soon!" Poking fun at the fact that movie merchandise is usually targeted towards the younger demographic, Yogurt proudly claimed that kids "love" the Spaceballs flamethrower. As originally reported by The Verge, people were talking on Reddit about a URL: boringcompany.com/flamethrower. As for what actually comes to pass, we'll just have to wait and see.

Earlier this week, a subredditor correctly guessed the password was "flame" and got access to the page, but the password appears to have since been changed. It was complete with a $600 flamethrower that specified, "Prototype pictured above". That's right, actual flamethrowers.

It's not clear if this screenshot is legitimate and, with the password having been changed it's hard to check so Alphr has contacted the Boring Company for clarification.

Elon Musk also sent out a more recent Tweet about his "little friend", with an Instagram link to a picture of the gun. It surely doesn't look very safe to us. The company is also selling $30 fire extinguishers to go with the flamethrowers.
