The Firkin Flamer's Alt-Fire ability to leak oil allows players to keep enemies away from specific points of importance, like the Payload Cart or a Capture Point. Since the oil can be lit by any weapon that causes fire, it's a great way to do an ambush. A good strategy is putting oil at the end of a corridor, distancing yourself and then shooting a flare when the enemies go by. The Detonator is a good choice for this, as it can explode over a wide area at once.
The oil can sometimes float or go trough gates, allowing for an unfair advantage pre-round start. The oil can also sometimes go trough the walls (just a bit of it) and burn the players, but this is hard to do and even harder to be caught in.
