I was talking with DT, and he suggested I post this. How about instead of (or an alternative to) the flashlight we do a Zippo lighter? You could model it up nice with a signature Nuke symbol and nice shiny chrome!
I mean, Duke has to light his cigars somehow, right? =)
I like that idea as a alternative to the flares (because honestly, flares aren't very Duke like). Of course, the lighters would have to be unrealistically bright to be useful.
The cool thing about a flashlight is that it makes use of the spot light effect. There's no way a lighter can be a spot light.
But as some have noted, I really don't need a model for the flashlight. In fact, it would suck to have to put away your weapon and get it out each time you wanted to use it. It could be like some games where you turn it on and the light is just there while you still hold your weapon (maybe he has an attachment to his nightvision goggles?)
