Divers can't throw down Chem lights in water!
Assigned, NormalPublic


Divers can't throw chem lights under water any more, it is the only thing that gives a sense of direction and can help them mark targets under. It's a vital part of being a diver, and needs to be added back in. It provides them very much help since they don't spawn with night vision, its very hard to operate them at night.

Steps To Reproduce

Spawn as a diver, get chem lights, attempt to throw underwater or surfaced on the water and you can't. Makes it impossible for divers to be used during night time missions.

I was just trying to do this yesterday and could not so the only way I could highlight a area under water was to manually place chem lights in the editor which is only good for marking areas before mission start. Also why does the light attachment for rifles auto turn off while going under water? (I would of thought it would of been waterproof) we need a diving light to make it a bit easier to navigate and highlight areas.
