Torch in Heretic

For the firesticks in Doom and Doom II, see Thing types#Obstacles. For the portable light source in Doom 3, see Flashlight.

The Torch is an artifact in Heretic and Hexen. Using it will illuminate all areas (even underwater areas) to full brightness for 120 seconds. This effect is much like Doom's Light amplification visor, except that its light flickers slightly.
