The Flashlight is a game mechanic in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. It is used to illuminate the hallway in the Office, and it can be used by the cameras to illuminate rooms being viewed from the Monitor.

The flashlight has a limited battery life, so it can not be used for very prolonged periods of time. Should the flashlight be disabled, whether it be from Balloon Boy or from battery life depletion, the player will be vulnerable to attack, particularly from Foxy.
