Road flares are extinguished and reusable when placed in protector case
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Found some protector cases at the site of a firefight. Had a road flare placed in one. Brought it out today to light a campfire and accidentally hit the red(X,) thinking it would drop, because my inventory was full, except for the slot in the protector case. I looked in the case, thinking it would be on fire in the case and damaging my inventory. The flare was extinguished, so I tried lighting it again a few more times. It worked every time, and never wore beyond the (worn) state it was in when I picked it up originally, so I think this gives virtually unlimited uses for a road flare.

Steps To Reproduce

Have a full inventory with a space open in a protector case (Road flare may need to be drawn from the protector case slot initially, I didn't check.) Light a road flare. Hit the red (X) "drop" button. Road flare will be unlit and reusable in the protector case.

Additional Information

No additional info at the moment, I also have a short video of this if you need. Just need to know what file type can be sent as video.
