A Torch is a usable melee weapon in The Evil Within.


Torches are powerful melee weapons that are very effective against most enemies due to their weakness to fire. They make for a good substitute to matches in setting things alight, and can also be used as a portable source of light if the lantern attracts too much unwanted attention.

It is often carried by the Haunted and occasionally found around levels. They can only be carried one at a time and are not included in Sebastian's inventory space.
