Battlefield 3 Tactical Light Guide
In this Battlefield 3 Tactical Light guide, you will discover what
the Tactical Light does, how to unlock it, and what the best strategies for using it are.
Battlefield 3 Tactical Light Overview
The Tactical Light is a secondary weapon accessory in Battlefield 3 and essentially is a very bright flashlight.
It looks just like a flashlight and is attached to your weapon, but it is so bright that it will blind players who
happen to look into the lens.
The Tactical Light's effectiveness depends on the proximity and level of brightness of the map. The closer you
are to your target, the brighter and more intense the blinding effect is. If you are far away, the tactical light
typically does not do much except let the enemy know where you are.
Additionally, the darker the area, the more intense the Tactical Light shines. If you use your Tactical Light
outside, it hardly does anything aside from give away your position. However, if you use it in a dark area like the
metro tunnels in Operation Metro, it completely blinds your opponent and practically removes all of their vision
(if you are close).

BF3 Tactical Light Downsides
As mentioned earlier in the guide, the Tactical Light has the major downside of giving away your position. This
is not just like the Laser Sight which lets your opponents know they are being targeted but rather a bright light
which can be seen by all players around you. You cannot sneak around behind walls and through cover with a Tactical
Note that you can press "up" on the directional pad to turn on and off the tactical light. When you are
sprinting it should always be off, and when you are about to engage in combat you can turn it back on.
How to Unlock the Tactical Light
You can unlock the Battlefield 3 Tactical Light just like any other secondary weapon attachment - by getting
kills with the gun you want to unlock it on. It only takes about 100 kills or so to get a Tactical Light (varies
gun to gun) as it is (I believe) one of your first 5 unlocks, regardless of weapon.
Battlefield 3 Tactical Light Strategies
Now that you know what the Tactical Light does and what its downsides are, we are ready to discuss strategy. The
first thing is that I need to re-emphasize how easily the light gives away your position. It is like a beacon that
lets everyone know exactly where you are. You can only sneak up on players from behind with a Tactical Light - you
will never creep through brush and approach from the front.
The other thing that should be re-emphasized is that the Tactical Light's effectiveness is dependent upon the
brightness of the area. On any bright outdoor maps (like the first portion of Operation Metro) you
never want to use a Tactical Light. It just gives your position away and it is so bright outside it
does not blind anyone.
Additionally, remember that the further you are from your opponents, the less effective the light is. As a
result, you never want to engage in long range combat with a Tactical Light. It just shows the opponents where you
are and does nothing to blind the enemy.
For this reason, I think a tactical light is best to use in indoors fights which involve a lot of closer
quarter's fighting. Use an automatic weapon and bust into crowded rooms, using your light to blind the opponent and
then take them out before they can recover.
Battlefield 3 Tactical Light Conclusion
The Tactical Light is a great add-on for players with a fast trigger finger. If you take too long to take down
the opponent, they will quickly find out where you are due to the brightness of the Tactical Light. For best
results, use it in short-ranged combat in dark, indoor areas.
