View Full Version : Can enemies see your light augmentation????

Hey when you use the default light augmentation can enemies see that? I really haven't tried it or nothing has occurred yet but maybe the situation hasn't happened to me in the game yet so I don't know.
I remember in the first one enemies could see your light augmentation, but in this one it appears they can't...or can they...anyone know for sure???? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure they can't see it because it's more like nightvision goggles than a flashlight.

I don't think I ever faced this situation in the full game, but in the demo a few months back I did notice that some guards spotted me when I turned my light on. I'm not really sure, though. I generally use my pistol flashlight anyway, because it looks cooler. http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/icons/icon14.gif

what exactly IS the light (in either game)?
is it just affecting your vision or is it actually emanating from your body?

Well in the first one it was just like a light much like the light found in DX: IW pistol. I think in both they eminate from your eyes some how, at least in the first one it did. I mean it is a biomod in both the games.
In the second one though it appears to have more of night vision qualities or low spectrum light while in the first one it just looked like a plain o' flashlight.
That's why I'm curious to see if anyone has noticed any guards noticing you turning your light aug in the second one. In the first one if you turned the light on they could actually see it. In this second one I'm not getting that feeling but I'm not sure yet.

I play large portions of the game with the light on (it drains no energy). Guards never see it.
