Cry of Fear Wiki

Flare is a piece of equipment in Cry of Fear.


Simon uses these in the Subways. When they burn, they emit a bright light used to illuminate the surroundings. They can be held while walking/dual wielding, or they can be thrown to light up an area in front of Simon. These will be your only light source in the subway between Saxon Avenue and Hansson Square, so use them wisely. You can only carry 5 flares at a time.



  • Trying to grab more flares than five will end up in Simon saying "I can't carry any more syringes.", this seems to be just a small bug.
