The Flare is a light source object and a weapon that is featured in the Nightmare House series. The Flare can be used as a weapon by tossing them at Zombies or Creepers, which sets them on fire.

Nightmare House 2Edit


The Flare as seen in Nightmare House 2.

The Flares begin to appear in Nightmare House 2 when the Patient must power on the generator in Chapter 3: Maintenance. These Flares are shown to be quite useful due to the fact that the Patient is able to damage any enemies without having to waste any of his ammo. The Flares especially prove to be a useful lighting source in the game as seen in Chapter 5: Dead Signal ever since the Patient's flashlight is unable to work properly for most of that very chapter. The Flares stop appearing in Chapter 7: Requiem.
