|Item Type||Light Source|
|Crafting||This item cannot be crafted.|
|Notes||Lits up a large area in a red glow|
They can be lit and carried around, by pressing and holding the right mouse button, or dropped onto the ground, by releasing the right mouse button. Flares light up large areas with an immense, red glow — very useful for fighting in the dark.
Additionally, flares may cause creatures to retreat from the area lit up by the flare.[unconfirmed]
Flares can be thrown onto gasoline to light it, however it is advisable to use matchsticks as a more disposable alternative due to the more uncommon and practical nature of flares.
A flare lasts about 3-5 minutes and if timed properly, a single flare can last through a single night without subjecting the protagonist to health loss from the Shadows trait.
Flares can be stacked up to 10 units.
