Simple breech loaded pistol used for launching flares. Not designed to function as a weapon. — In-game description

The Flaregun is a piece of equipment (and potential weapon) in DayZ Standalone.


This gun is used to fire flares to create a source of light. Once fired, a flare will hang in the air for a short time and light up the area around it in a red glow. Once it reaches the ground, it extinguishes and the light source goes out shortly after.
