About[edit | edit source]

The Flare Gun is the Scout's key utility tool. Upon firing, it launches bright flares across long distances that attach to any surface they land on, burning out after a duration. The flares glow brighter than any ordinary flare, lighting up large areas. Direct hits with the flares deals a small amount of damage while bouncing off of the enemy. Flares bounced off of enemies don't latch onto surfaces.

The Scout can use his Flare Gun to expose unseen resources and hazards such as Cave Leeches. When coupled with his Grappling Gun, the Scout excels at gathering resources that would be hard to reach and see otherwise. While the Flare Gun is a useful tool for cave exploration, it can also be used during swarms to spot enemies from afar.
