Chemlights are a versatile light source that can be thrown and carried once thrown. Although they only generate a small amount of light, they are only visible up to 100m away, allowing players to use them without too much risk of being spotted, unlike Flares which are visible from over a Kilometer away. It should be noted that Zombies are not attracted to the light emitted from Chemlights.
Chemlights last for around 45-60 minutes, as opposed to five minutes for a flare.
Chemlights come in packs of ten. Like flares, they can be picked up and carried around after being thrown to provide a mobile source of light. Unlike flares, however, chemlights aren't bright enough to blind a player at night, and are only visible from short distances.
