I don't care what the flashlight looks like when viewed by another player but when viewed in first-person it is blinding to the point of being difficult to see - especially on continents with added bloom. The only time you can actually see properly when using one is daytime because it doesn't blind you with glare. Turning down its brightness or spreading the beam out would help a ton. And like I said, it's fine when viewed by another player. It's the first-person view that is the problem.
