The Welding Torch is an oxy-fuel welding tool used by HECU Engineers to cut through sealed doors or floor grates.
- It is connected to a fuel tank attached to the back of the Engineer. If pierced, it is likely to explode.
- Engineers have been known to light torches using their cigarette.
- It only directly appears in Opposing Force. In the other games, it is only seen when a door is cut, the Marines standing behind being only generic models.
- A larger, self-contained version of the welding torch is available to the regular HECU forces when an Engineer is not available. This has the tanks mounted to a handcart, rather than on an Engineer's backpack. This variety only appears in Blue Shift.
