I will point the way
Though if I point at you
It might be your last day
If my speed is true

When in flight I scare
In liquid I have one aim
Sometimes I flare
Then wood will flame

What am I?

I believe the answer is

Arrow

I will point the way

Arrows are used as direction markers

Though if I point at you It might be your last day If my speed is true

If struck by an arrow, you may die

When in flight I scare

Arrows in flight can make a sort of buzzing sound. Or people may simply be afraid of getting hit

In liquid I have one aim

Underwater arrows or harpoons are only used for hunting fish

Sometimes I flare Then wood will flame

Sometimes flaming arrows are used to burn wooden structures

Idea:

You are a weapon

Explanation:

Weapons are pointed at targets.

If a weapon is pointed at you, it will indeed be your last day if the speed of the bullet is true.

In flight, bullets from the weapons do scare.

Suggested by Sleafar: Speargun for the "In liquid I have one aim".

Muzzles of guns flare when fired.

Wood will flame if shot at by a flamethrower...

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, you're on the right track but wrong weapon - it can be a weapon but it can be something else so I can't accept 'a weapon' as the answer $\endgroup$ Apr 9, 2016 at 19:21
