“A clan of outlaw humans, the Fire Barons strive to live only for the next battle, or the next bottle. Or both, that would be fine.” — Tour Book

“I told you they'd be back!” — Mangus

After being ambushed by the Drowning Doom, Eddie, Lita and the remaining Ironhead forces rally to face the large horde and presumably die when the Fire Barons appear on the Megastage. After confirming that Eddie Riggs and his forces are responsible for killing General Lionwhyte, their leader, The Baron, orders his unit to attack the oncoming Drowning Doom offensive.

After the battle, the Baron reveals that Doviculus reopened the Sea of Black Tears during the three months Ironheade spent encamped in the mountains and then the Barons have been continually moving north to avoid Ophelia's newly formed army. When Eddie decides to ride for the Sea of Black Tears, the Baron offers to come with him, formally joining Ironheade's army out of respect for killing Lionwhyte.


“We'd be burned alive. Fierce warriors, the Fire Barons.” — Lita Halford

Fast vehicle, infantry-killer. Fire Barons toss molotovs at their enemies which explode and ignite their targets.

In the campaign, Fire Barons are extremely potent anti-infantry units that do well against all enemy infantry, with the exception of Skull Rakers and fourth-tier uber-units. Their speed also means that they are able to reach locations and distant enemies much faster than many other Ironheade units.

Double Team[]

Eddie double teams with a Fire Baron.

Drivable vehicle. Eddie lays down a trail of flaming booze. Enveloping foes in a complete circle will trap and burn them as the circle shrinks.

When laying down the fire trail, the player should be aware that any closed shape will suffice. The fire deals good damage, but only once the ring has constricted enough to touch the enemies within.

  • The Fire Barons are voiced by Matthew Wood, Stephen Stanton, Dave Boat, and Rob Halford as The Baron.
  • If, at any time during a stage battle, there are no Fire Barons on the field, the next trio that is hired will be led by The Baron himself.
  • The Fire Barons are very distinguishable by their smoke stack-like tail pipes, the Molotov Cocktails stored in a compartment on top of their gas tanks, as well as by the fact that they all ride choppers (outstretched, stylized motorcycles).
