This article is about the Flashlight in Subnautica. To see this subject's article on the Below Zero Wiki, click here.

The Flashlight is a tool crafted by using the Fabricator.

While equipped, the Player can press RMB (XBox One:XBOX Right Bumper, PlayStation 4:PS4 R2) to switch the Flashlight on or off. The Flashlight will generate light in the direction the player faces while it is equipped and switched on. It is useful for night dives and exploring caves. The Flashlight consumes Energy from a Battery while switched on. The Flashlight can provide up to 13 minutes and 20 seconds of light on a single full Battery charge (8 seconds per unit of energy). The player can replace the Flashlight's Battery by pressing R (XBox One:XBOX X, PlayStation 4:Combops4sq).


If a Bleeder latches onto the player's arm, the player can use the Flashlight to hit the Bleeder.

It can scare away multiple Oculus, but can attract creatures like the Boneshark.
