It's a charge fire weapon, which means you will have to hold the fire button and release it to give out a huge blast that will destroy everything in front of you. After the blast, an area of energy will be left behind that will destroy anything that is within its vicinity.

Another feature of the Scorcher is that it helps you massively in moving around the map or escaping from an area. Holding the ADS button will aim the weapon above, and by shooting it, you will be thrown up in the air. With this, you can then use the parachute to traverse the map. This will help immensely if you want to go from one area to another in a short time. Not only that but if you feel overwhelmed or are in deep trouble in an area, then you can use this to get away from that.

You can also use the Pack-A-Punch machine to make the Scorcher even more powerful and do more damage.
