Yeah the game makers sure liked their flashlights, didn't they? Way overdone and completely un-realistic like a few other things game makers love like Bloom and Blur. When they come up with an effect that they think the kids will love, it's on from there. Sometimes what the game makers intend is not always a good thing.

Actually there are military grade flash lights that can blind in broad day light. But hey feel free to troll about something you are clueless about. Well done.

Don't worry about it, he's just trying to find any little thing to troll about the game. The best thing he can do is get a refund and go and play Mario.

His point regarding sniper scope reflections in pitch black is still accurate.

He makes good points, but they're not game breakers imo.

I HATE the flashlights. Half the time my own team is blinding me. The other half you have morons that think it gives them an advantage by blinding you. I kill far more of them who try to blind me than they kill me. It is just another stupid idea morons use as an advantage. It is kind of like jumping in MOH or COD. It really doesn't do anything but people still jump around like jackasses because they are reactionary twits who just copy what other morons are doing. This is why I LOVE games with jump delays on landing. It keeps people from being morons in front of me.

Nah it isn't a game breaker. It just added to a long list of annoying crap I hate about gamers.

I think you press and hold the right mouse button and use it to look around the ****pit, just like the helicopters. Havent tried it out, but it works for the helicopters.

EDIT: Damn forum censored out the c*ockpit

True story:

I had an instructor (either Tom Givens or Louis Awerbuck) who relayed an interesting flashlight story. An officer was approaching a suspect with weapon drawing and flashlight on. He was using an FBI hold for his flashlight, i.e. pistol in strong hand; flashlight in weak hand raised above his head. During the exchange of fire, the bad guy shot for the light. The bullet went clean through the flashlight housing.

Good stuff.
