The Flashlight must be equipped in a device slot in order to activate.
Turn this on when it is dark to illuminate the area directly in front of you.
- Targets Self
The flashlight will aim wherever your cursor points, which may be different from where your player is facing.
- The Flashlight is a device uniquely designed for “What Lies Beneath”. It can be found in a crate at the end of the first corridor of Drozana Maintenence Levels. It is removed from the player's possession after leaving the map. It can also be acquired permanently from a supply crate in the staging area of “Starbase Incursion” and is vital for navigating the darkened cargo hold.
- According to mission designer Jesse Heinig the Flashlight is removed from the player due to hardware limitations. Since each player would be able to carry a dynamic light source, social areas with 30+ players could not be rendered anymore with most GPUs.
- This item was originally not unique.
It is possible to save these by equipping them on your BOFFs, as the game only removes it from inventory and the player equipment slots. You can have as many as you have BOFFs.
