Flashlight (Military)

The Military Flashlight, although much rarer than the starting Flashlight, emits seemingly less light. However the light that is produced is red (the same shade as that of a chemlight-red) and is harder to notice through walls when used inside a building. When staring directly into the flashlight beam, an eclipse-like circle appears instead of a ball of light. While this may help at longer distances, it is important to note that a close encounter with another player could potentially give the user's position away.

The Military Flashlight does not take the slot of the regular Flashlight and a player may carry both at once. However to use either Flashlight the player must equip it as their secondary weapon.

Note that the Military Flashlight can be extremely useful in night situations if players are in a city, as it is difficult to locate the source of and will not aggro zombies on the player. This makes raiding a city at night feasible and still be able to see the loot without drawing the attention of zombies or survivors.

Checked this thing out last night at the NWAF, it does not attract zombies, we walked up to them and shined in in their face.

This is a really good flashlight if you need to be able to see things and stay stealthy at the same time. Found one at the Balota airstrip, it's been helping me see much easier.

@lxF0ST3Rxl You don't need to have any batteries to power the games flashlights :)
