A flashlight is a tool designed to provide light.
The flashlight is a siderail attachment featured in Insurgency. It is designed to light up areas in front of the player's weapon and blind enemy players if aimed directly at their eyes. It can be turned off using the toggle flashlight/laser-sight button, defaulted ).
- You can, in a pinch, use the flashlight as a make-shift laser sight in close quarters, since the free-aim system makes it difficult to know exactly where your weapon is pointing. The flashlight is much cheaper than the lasersight.
- You can create a make-shift strobelight by turning on/off the flashlight while shooting, this can be easily done by binding the mousewheel to the flashlight on/off key. Alternatively, an Autohotkey script may be be implemented. (This is not recommended)
