I found a makarov, my first gun finally! But I'm in a night server, and the makarov is set to mys econdary weapon and I can't make it my primary. And so when I want to be able to switch between my flashlight and pistol with F it doesn't work. If i right click my flashlight and remove from tool belt it says not enough space in inventory because my pistol is taknig up my secondary slot. So is it not possible to be able to have a pistol and flashlight? Same goes for having a primary weapon and a hatchet as secondary, can't do it.

Well you can put the gun in to your backpack but that means you are going to have to open it up to get the gun out again and hatchet can only be placed on tool belt and primary.

You need a gun with a flashlight attachment (if they've fixed them?)

As far as I know the glock (only gun with flashlight) works perfectly fine, the one I have seems to work perfect.

If you want a flash light and a pistol get yourself a G17 which can be found in military spawns, it's got a build in flash light, good sights and a 17 round clip.

I have a G17 that seems to work.

I think we should be able to hold the flashlight in 1 hand and the secondary weapon in the other. For instance equip secondaries in the primary slot while the flashlight is in the secondary. Then when aiming down the sights, the flashlight will illuminate. Obviouly with this combination you wouldn't be able to use a primary.

To use a Primary and a flashlight, you would have to find a primary that has one attached... or find some NVGs

I wonder if having an equipped toolbelt item slot would be good.

If anything, attach a chemlight or road flare to you, although you'll be a Christmas tree you can have quick access to your makarov.

Remmington shotgun has one as well. I think one other gun may have one too.

because most people dislike night time, there's less chance of this as servers that are night time are usually at like 10-20 players. shit, i've only ever been killed by players when it's daylight in game. plus you can just turn on your flashlight for a second, get your bearings, move for five minutes or so, turn on flashlight again, get bearings, repeat.

I also like this idea, equip the flashlight in the tool equip spot and you could then use it with your secondary while keeping your primary equipped, but on your back. So you could shoot with your secondary and use the flashlight at the same time but if you switched to your primary you would lose the benefit of the flashlight.

There could just be a simple flashlight equip spot or have it take the same place the NVGs do for example.

THIS

guys, chemlights are visible 50m range max(for other players), invisible for zombies and with brightness and gamma set high you'll be able to see in a 10-20m radius (depending on the color, green and red are good)
