Flare Crates are game objects that contain 4-5 flares.


Flare Crates can be found through out the world. The player will be required to hit the crate with a weapon to open them. Enemies can knock these type of crates causing them to break open. These crates will respawn when you save and exit. They also respawn in caves when you exit and enter the cave again.
