Space X, Tesla, and The Boring Company CEO, Elon Musk, is known for making bold promises. He tweeted, in last December, "After [we sell] 50k [Boring Company] hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower." On Christmas Eve, after selling said 50,000 hats, he tweeted that the flamethrowers were coming "soon!"

Mark this as one of the promises Elon Musk delivers on, apparently, because it looks like the Boring Company flamethrower is here. Musk is not just a genius that brought the Tesla Roadster to the world, he is also a man of his word. A Redditor discovered earlier this week that the URL "boringcompany.com/flamethrower" started redirecting to a page with a password box. And at least one user was able to guess the original password, too: "flame." (Kind of obvious isn't it?. It’s since been changed.)

Those lucky enough to get through the password gate was directed to a shop page with a pre-order prompt for a $600 flamethrower. "Prototype pictured above," the listing reads. "Final production flamethrower will be better."
There is still no official release date for the fiery gadget as for now, but if you trust Elon, it is "coming soon".
Stay tuned for more information on the flamethrower rolls out in the coming weeks or months.
