The Headtorch allows the user to have a flashlight while their hands remain free for other tasks. It requires an Alkaline Battery 9V to function.

This is a very effective item for nighttime functions, but you must be wary that your light gives away your position to others players.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The headtorch was originally invented for use in coal mines, allowing for safer light than the old-school fire lantern. This had a side effect of also allowing two handed mining, and the headtorch was soon adopted in disaster relief and emergency response units for that very reason.
