The RoadFlare is a consumable that can be bought in the Weapon Store, found in S.O.S (Radio) dropboxes, dropped by backpack zumbis, and can be dropped by other players.
The roadflare is a consumable that can be thrown to illuminate an area during the night (or day) period that occurs every around every other 10 minutes and lasts for roughly 10 minutes. The roadflare can also be placed in the player's belt to illuminate the area around the player.
- When placed in the player's belt, the range of visibilty is slightly reduced than just holding onto the roadflare.
- The roadflare has a life of five (5) minutes when thrown and a life of three (3) minutes when placed in the player's belt. The roadflare has an unlimited life when just wielded.
- When placed in the player's belt, the player is unable to be unnoticed by crouching (using the "Left Control"). The player alerts Zumbis just the same as regular walking.
- Aside from the color of light and lifetime, the road flare functions in a manner identical to the Glowstick.
