Starfield: How to use Flashlight
When the game begins, you will start your journey in a bright area. By bright, we mean where you don’t need to use a flashlight. That said, most players may even forget that they already have a flashlight equipped by default, and others might try to search for one and end up failing in the end. However, since you will eventually have to traverse the alien planets during the night and explore the underground caves, you will find the flashlight a very handy tool in such situations. So, here’s everything you need to know to use it.
How to turn on Flashlight?
On PC, you can press the F key, which is the first letter of Flashlight. Most players will obviously know that, but if you didn’t, now you know. On Xbox, you can press the LB button on your controller to turn it on. In the early stages, you will mostly wander outside of dark places, and that will eventually lead to not using the flashlight much. But the moment changes the second anyone steps foot inside those big buildings or any dark places. Then you will wonder, wait, where’s my flashlight?
How do you turn off the flashlight?
Well, turning off the flashlight is pretty easy as well. Simply press the F key on PC or LB on Xbox, and it’ll turn off by itself. This is a common control that you will use countless times during your explorations. Sooner or later, your muscle memory will get used to it, and even if you change to other games, your fingers will know what to press.
Is it included in the tutorial?
Well yes. Every basic control will be covered in the in-game tutorial. As for the flashlight, you will learn how to use it on planet Vectera, where the tutorial will give you a quick rundown of how it works. We know tutorials are boring, and gamers like to rush them like always. However, they are an important part of the gameplay and shouldn’t be skipped. That said, it’s also easier to miss some unique or important controls if one skips the tutorial.
