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.
