Hey guys,

I'm just curious, in what situations have you used roadflares and chemlights?

I have used them in many situations, but mostly to find my friends at night

Aah yes of course, didn't think of that. Have to get me some friends...and chemlights.

What are these other situations you speak of? Secret night mission-stuff it sounds like!

Zombies will turn and walk towards flares at night, makes a nice distraction.

Aha, yes, I found the DayZ wiki site now. It will save me alot of noob questions from now on =)

Chemlights are awesome to use in the night. low light value, but still enough to see something, and you can carry them with you while keeping your gun available for zombies.

roadflares are just an invitation for being robbed.

the red chemlights are less bright than blue ones, which are in turn less bright than green ones.

I think green ones can be seen from 75m, the others only from a closer range

And Roadflares are awesome for making a lighthouse out of a firestation-roofs and other tall buildings!

It's Green-Red-Blue actually. The light from red flares is harder to see in, but it can be seen from farther away.

My favorite is the M203 flares :D

I've always enjoyed launching them over Cherno when servers are full. It's like turning a light on and watching the roaches all skitter off.

My first time playing DayZ I was wondering around aimless and confused. I made it to Cherno, got my legs broken and bled down to red. I went to the crane and kept throwing a massive supply of road flares at my feet. xD (I didn't know what to do and I had TONS of flares)

Eventually someone came along and offered to go get morphine and blood for me, but he never came back :(

Someone else came and healed me all the way up, showed me around a bit and set me free :'D

I've also used them to find allies and distract zombies.
