I've killed more people coming down the subway tunnel than any other spot because I can see the tact light coming down the tunnel. Likewise, I have been killed more than I have killed using the tact light. While I'm still learning how to best use the light, it would be nice if I can turn the stupid thing on and off. Anybody know how?

Assuming you have not modified any of the key mappings, you can toggle the light and laser off and on using T


On the Xbox the light is controlled by the D-Pad.

    Up, specifically. Down will select firing mode.

  • Didn't know that. I refuse to use it anyway as it's a cheap as hell attachment. But, hey, good to know if I pick up someone's gun that uses cheap as hell attachments. =)

On PS3 you do this with the UP button on the directional buttons (seems to be the same on XBox)


UP on the D-pad will toggle light/laser on/off and DOWN selects firing mode (single/burst/full).
