| ||For an overview of flares in the Fallout series, see flare.|
|The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
Flares can come in handy in low-light situations. If you throw one, any targets standing in the vicinity of the flare are treated as if in daylight, making them a lot easier to hit with ranged attacks if darkness is causing a penalty to your accuracy.
Making aimed shots at the eyes of enemies in power armor can blind or even kill them instantaneously, making the flare a cheap and deadly weapon.
- While it doesn't appear in the Van Buren tech demo, it is still present in the game files and as such, can be spawned with the console command CreateEntity WeaponsFlare.wea.
