One of the key weapons in the arsenal of Din Djarin – aka The Mandalorian – are his flamethrowers, and Hacksmith Industries bring us this video of their build. Be prepared, you might want to bring some long sticks and some marshmallows, this is going to get hot.
The Hacksmith, a.k.a. James Hobson, recently uploaded the above video to his YouTube channel. The video is the first in a series Hobson and his crew are making in relation to The Mandalorian. It seems Hobson’s goal is to make all the critical pieces of Mando’s armor and weaponry; that includes the bounty hunter’s flame thrower, blaster, jet pack, grapple gun, spear, and, of course, helmet.
How @thehacksmith team built a Mandalorian flame-thrower gauntlet

In the video, Hobson and his team show off how they built the flamethrower gauntlet. Shockingly, they use no Beskar iron whatsoever. Hobson notes toward the beginning that his team gleaned a lot about building gauntlets after making an IRL version of Iron Man’s. Which, while not only didactic, also looks like a legitimate Marvel-level movie prop.
