Syphon Filter Edit
In the original trilogy on the PS1, the flashlight only makes an appearance in the first Syphon Filter game. The Flash light appears like a typical flashlight and is equipped the same way as weapons are. As a result, players must balance using this device with a weapon slot.
Syphon Filter OS, DM, LS Edit
A flashlight appears in Syphon Filter Omega Strain, Dark Mirror and Logan's Shadow, but this time it's a small light that is attached around the player's wrist like a wrist watch. This Flashlight can be used while using weapons seeing as the players hands are free while the light is functioning.
Cautionary points Edit
The flashlight will draw enemies to you like moth to a flame. Only use it when necessary. At certain times, a night vision goggles may be better.
However, the NVG will blind you when you stare at a light source, so this is an occasion when the flashlight has an advantage.
From The Omega Strain onwards, using the flashlight and holding a weapon simultaneously causes the player to automatically raise the weapon sight to eye level.
This item is required to advance through the game in Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror Episode 4 Part 2 and Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow Episode 5 Part 3.
