Phantom flashlight cone left behind
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Sometimes if you cancel the action of pulling out your flashlight when you're holding a weapon, it'll create a phantom cone of light where you were previously standing, as if you were still there holding the flashlight. This allows a player to 'place' a fake flashlight shining down a hall way and stand back with a weapon, waiting to ambush anything that enters the light. {F28221}
