You probably want to bring a gun with good range for when you run into Grunfeld Bach though, since he can be pretty annoying to try to fight in melee sometimes. He rarely lets you stay close for very long before using his cross to blind you and zip away. And he's not possible to feed on (probably tastes too bad) so there's no point trying to get close for that.
With the flamethrower make sure you don't fire against the floor too close to you or you will set yourself on fire as well, and that thing really hurts.
