As mentioned earlier, the UV Flashlight is handed to you after having a chat with NPCs during Dying Light 2‘s Welcome On Board mission. Similar to the Grappling Hook, you need to equip this by looking at your Accessories tab. Then, press “1” to cycle through your tools, and press the middle mouse button to use it.

The UV Flashlight, as the name implies, uses ultraviolet light to stun and damage the undead. This is particularly useful in interior spaces or during nighttime chases.

However, this gadget’s battery gets drained rather quickly. That makes the default variant a bit unreliable. As such, you’ll probably want some UV Flashlight upgrades in Dying Light 2. We’ve got them listed below, and you can get them from Craftmaster NPCs.

Still, among the Nightrunner Tools, I would suggest prioritizing the Paraglider first. Later, you can decide whether you’d upgrade the UV Flashlight or the Grappling Hook next. Don’t worry since you’ll have enough Military Tech to fully upgrade all three Nightrunner Tools as long as you find those airdrops. You can learn more about the currency in our Military Airdrop locations guide.
