Overview[edit | edit source]

Flashlights can be used to blind the Killer. Blinding the Killer while they are carrying a Survivor will stun them for a few seconds and cause them to drop the Survivor.

Flashlights are also very effective against three Killers, The Hag, The Wraith and The Nurse, with additional interactions with The Spirit and The Legion:


  • Shining a Flashlight upon the Wraith when he is cloaked or in the act of uncloaking will trigger the Lightburn effect, stunning him for a few seconds and forcing an instant uncloak.
  • Shining a Flashlight upon one of the Hag's Phantasm Traps will highlight and destroy it.
  • Shining a Flashlight upon the Nurse while she is charging up a Blink will trigger the Lightburn effect, causing her to go straight into the fatigue from the Blink.
  • Shining a Flashlight upon the face of the Spirit's Husk while she is using Yamaoka's Haunting will cause the Husk to immediately disappear.
  • Blinding the Legion while they are using Feral Frenzy will cause them to immediately end Feral Frenzy with no penalty.
