I was rather disappointed when it disappeared from my inventory after the mission ended. I would haeve thought it might come in handy for other dark-ish missions like those in caves, etc.?

Also, it would be nice if the beam worked a little better (wider beam, slightly more illuminating). Right now it seems at least a little useless.

So, yeah, if the flashlight could work a little better and if we got to keep it after as a bound rare item that would be kinda' nifty.

P.S. Love the What Lies Beneath mission. One of my favorites to date. Want more like this. In terms of creativity, atmosphere, etc. Better than the usual "shoot 5 XYZPDQ" missions.

The Dev answer was that the flashlight effects sometimes caused problems on other maps outside that mission, so the quickest and easiest way to fix the issue was to strip it from your character after completion of the mission.
