wouldn't this potentially be exploitable in multiplayer, as your weapon flash would be much harder or impossible to see if you fire from inside a structure or while lying on top of something?

the illumination from burning vehicles at night is awesome though

firing from inside a building still illuminates the ground and stuff if you're near a window or something but not inside of building and YES nobody would be able to see anything except muzzle flash so if angle was wrong your shots would be "invisible" at night.

Issue was looked into and fixed.
