|Range:||Varies when thrown.|
|Description:||"Very bright red light source."|
Road Flares are a throwable item that, when used, are consumed and emit a red light. The flare will emit a red light for a brief period of time (3 minutes). Road flares can help to attract zombies in tight situations where the player needs to escape. Very useful when trying to locate your group/friend/friends along the road when you haven't memorized the map.
- The flare seems to only be lit on one end, whereas the Chemlight , a longer-lasting variant, fully lights up when used, effectively making the Chemlight slightly brighter.
