Flashlights are items which project a cone of light when selected in the hotbar. Despite the starting blue flashlight's tooltip, it does not seem to drain energy. Flashlights of different colors can be found in chests.

UsageEdit

The Flashlight is the first form of portable light generation the player has access to. It can be a very important tool when exploring caves, or when outside at night. Flashlights only require the use of one hand, meaning players can wield a second one hand item in their free hand. This means a player can wield a dagger or sword in his right hand, and a flashlight in his left hand, making combat in dark situations much easier.

Flashlights have no energy usage and unlimited duration, so players don't need to worry about using them sparingly.

VarietiesEdit

Currently, there are at least four known varieties of Flashlights: The Blue (starting) Flashlight, the Yellow Flashlight, the Red Flashlight, and the Green Flashlight. Each flashlight has a different light color. The different colors serve no explicitly stated purpose other than vanity, but certain color flashlights can make finding ores easier on certain blocks.

Because flashlights are one handed, players can hold a flashlight in each hand. Although this doesn't significantly increase the brightness of the area, two different color flashlights can be combined to get a more natural lighting color.
