The Flashlight is equipment in Dying Light. It allows Kyle Crane to see in dark areas and at night. It is available from the start of the game. Unlike other equipment, the flashlight can not be found in the players inventory, and can not be removed.
In Hard mode the flashlight can only be used for a limited amount of time as it will dim and eventually turn off. It's recommended that you keep your flashlight off when you are safe or can see.
