Dying Light 2 takes place 22 years after the original game and comes after seven years of anticipation. It stars protagonist Aiden Caldwell, a Pilgrim, who's searching for his sister.

Set in a world where Humanity has been lost to the virus, with only a few human settlements left across the world.

Players can use the UV Flashlight to ward off the Infected.

Here's what we know about getting the UV Flashlight while playing Dying Light 2.

How to Unlock the UV Flashlight in Dying Light 2

The UV Flashlight is an item that returns from the first game, but it takes a lot longer to unlock this time around.

Players will unlock the flashlight mid-game as a Nightrunner Tool. The UV Flashlight makes nighttime quests and runs much easier to navigate.

It takes roughly 15 hours to get to the point in the game where you unlock the flashlight, during a quest called "Welcome On Board"... as long as you're only playing story missions.

There's no way to accidentally miss the UV Flashlight, as the main story will not progress until the player has it due to how important it is for later gameplay.

Players will collect the UV Flashlight from Meyer during the aforementioned quest.
