"A high power flashlight to help light up dark environments. " - In-game Description

|Kills Required||0 (AK-12 Variants, SCAR- PDW, DBV-12, Saiga-12 - Underbarrel) (SPAS-12 - Other)

The Flashlight is an underbarrel attachment available by default to most Assault Rifles, Carbines, and DMRS. It is also unlocked with 120 kills on the Groza-1 and Groza-4 as an Underbarrel attachment, 365 kills as an Other attachment for the Groza-1, and at 200 kills for the M45A1 and Hecate II. It can be purchased with credits (CR), if kills are required.
The Flashlight is an unique attachment, for while it does not change the statistics of the weapon, it does brighten up surroundings when equipped. Therefore, it is most useful when used in dark areas. The most important places where the Flashlight is most helpful are in the underground tunnels in Ravod 911 and Highway Lot. In both areas, lights can be shot out that will darken the rooms, since there are no other sources of light in the tunnels. The light also points where your gun is pointing - it doesn't go straight if you are sprinting. If one wishes to acquire greater awareness of their surroundings in darker areas, this attachment is recommended.
Due to the limited use and functionality of the Flashlight, however, this attachment should most often be replaced for other, more useful Underbarrel Attachments, such as a Grip or Laser. Still, for the AK-12 and its variants, it is unlocked by default, and can be used until a player can put other Underbarrel Attachments. For the Groza-1, in addition to being an Underbarrel Attachment, is also available as an Other Attachment. Therefore, the Flashlight can be attached to the weapon without having the inability to attach any needed Underbarrel attachments, such as an Angled or Stubby Grip. It is also useful on the Hecate II, as grips are pointless on sniper rifles and they cannot mount underbarrel lasers.
The Flashlight can be used to light up dark places. Places that can have little to no light, due to players breaking all the lights, (like the tunnel at Highway Lot, or the underground passage at Ravod 911) can be uncovered with the Flashlight. However, the light is not very bright or strong. The Flashlight does not effect any of the gun stats.
- The Flashlight was previously an AK-12 exclusive attachment. Later, the Flashlight has been added to other AK-12 variants. Then it was added to the Groza family, the Hecate II, the M45A1, the SCAR-PDW, the DBV-12, the Saiga-12, and the SPAS-12, and finally to most guns.
- In real life, weapon-mounted flashlights are available for most weapons, including the in-game M4 and even some pistols.
- The M45A1 was the first Secondary weapon to have the Flashlight as an attachment. As of part one of the New Steel update, all weapons now have the Flashlight as an attachment.
- The MP10 has an integral flashlight mounted under the barrel.
