Destructoid has learned that DICE plans on fixing the flashlight issue in Battlefield 3. Currently, the flashlight is as bright as the sun, even when out in the open in broad daylight. The patch will address this issue by making the flashlight brighter than the sun. DICE has also stated that there's a 95% chance your eyeballs will melt in their sockets.
Actually, DICE is finally fixing the flashlight issue by scaling the brightness back thanks to all of the community feedback they've received. One would like to also presumably believe that DICE is changing the flashlight because they finally actually went outside on a sunny day to see what happens when you're aiming a flashlight at someone across an open field.
