When my hunter’s flashlight activates, there are areas it won’t illuminate. In those areas it’s pitch black and actually allows me to see through terrain. I see all vegetation and wildlife/monsters in these dark zones as silhouettes. In the illuminated areas, I see just fine, but all else is pitch black.
For instance. The illuminated area is supposed to be a cone or w/e in front of you. For me there are large chunks cut into it that are pitch black and make it so I can’t see what’s what in those areas.
