“A flashlight can be used for a light source by toggling on your light source action. It can also be attached to most guns.”


The Flashlight has two uses: as a light source or a melee weapon.

When used as a light source the Flashlight can be held in the player's hand and turned on and off with the F key (when using the default keybindings).

The Flashlight can also be attached to a gun through the normal weapon assembly process. To attach a Flashlight to a gun, the player must first read the schematic for that gun.

Alternatively, the Flashlight can be used a melee weapon and does only slightly more damage than the Stone Axe to zombies. Its recommended players instead craft a Wooden Club, as it does more damage than the Flashlight and can be repaired or re-crafted easily.
