Meltaguns and their variants look a little like flamers but without pilot lights.* They always have that cylindrical barrel with vents in it.* Multi-meltas are larger and may have two barrels.

"pwn"? Go back to Unreal Tournament.

Meltaguns will do serious damage at close range. Fortunately, Tau do extreme damage at long range, so it should balance out.

The only Melta weapons you should be worried about are Multimeltas 99% of the time. Meltaguns just lack the range most of the time (unless used by bikers or drop troopers...).
