"Create a powerful ball of flame using nearby oxygen as fuel."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Burning Drive (バーニングドライブ Bāningu Doraibu) is a Leg-type flamethrower weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Flame Mammoth and Boomerang Kuwanger in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped, Vile engulfs himself in a large, blazing blue flame. Burning Drive has relatively high power, but it comes at the expense of having almost no range to speak of. Because this weapon is fire-based, Burning Drive is completely useless while underwater.

Burning Drive is Chill Penguin's weakness, and Mega Man X takes a large amount of damage from this weapon as well.
