I am sorry, but why do modern game developers always feel the need to dumb down game play and make the game so even that there is no advantage except to be a run and gun rambo?
If you use the flashlight at the wrong time and I see your flashlight, I come kill you. You soon learn how and when to turn on the flash light in game to optimize it to your advantage.
Its not my problem inexperience players have been given equipment to use and cant understand the mechanics of how it works in game.

/end rant. :|

I don't feel any need to dumb it down. I mean to point out that, yes, if you use it at the wrong time, Rolling will stop typing "SFHOSPITALLINUXSERVARZ" and shoot you. But there isn't enough of a 'right' time to use it in the game as it's implemented.

I say that because, from experience, there very much is a 'right' time to use a light in the real world. If the way I worded things led you to believe I wanted to 'dumb down gameplay' as though it were 'your problem that inexperienced players can't understand the mechanics', I apologize. The correct approach is to smarten up gameplay by ensuring there is a right and wrong time to use it - not a wrong time and an arbitrary time.
