Overview[edit | edit source]

The Flare Gun is a great way to light up a large area and to let others know where you are. Best used when fired directly above you. The area it lights is very large, much, much larger than a normal campfire. It is about as visible as a Beacon which makes finding friends who need help at night much easier. It lasts until the flare hits the ground. Deals no damage when fired on a dinosaur or player.

It is consumed on use.

Utility[edit | edit source]

The Flare Gun can be colored using Dyes, changing the flare's color as well as the light given to the area. White colored flare makes exceptional flashbang.

It should be noted that a single Dye can colorize a single Flare Gun as well as a full stack of ten.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Fireworks Flaregun Skin is a skin for the Flare Gun. It creates a firework effect when the flare reaches its highest point.
  • When equipping Flare Gun there's a bug when player tries to roll an invisible barrel like in Simple Pistol.png Simple Pistol.
