A convenient battery powered LED lamp that affixes to the head utilizing two adjustable straps to secure it in place. — In-game description


The Head Torch 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. The red Head Torch has a significantly dimmer bulb than its counterpart, but it isn’t as noticeable if someone is using night vision.

The red and white Head Torch can be distinguished by the type of head band. The red Head Torch has a black head strap, while the white Head Torch has a blue head strap.

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.
