Battlefield 3 getting patch to nerf supernova flashlights


Battlefield 3 is a damn fine game, although I neglected to mention one annoyance in my review — those goddamn flashlights. You see, many guns in the game can have a tactical light attached to them, and you can shine this in an enemy’s face to blind them. This is fine when you’re both in a tight corridor underground, but it’s equally as blinding in broad daylight.

Thankfully, the folks at DICE have realized that this isn’t how real flashlights behave, and will be fixing it shortly. Take a look at some before and after shots below:

    I don’t think it’s physically possible…
