A flashlight is a drainable item providing a source of light.


A flashlight is used to provide light for the player when it is dark. It is the strongest equippable light source in the game, however the light emitted from the flashlight will attract zombies.

Requires batteries. Once a battery is in, it can be fitted and un-fitted. However, as the flashlight is used, the battery will eventually die out. A new battery can be put into the flashlight once a battery is dead. When low on battery, the flashlight will occasionally flicker.
