Torch

From DoomWiki.org

A torch found in a dark area in E1M2: The Dungeons.
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.

This item is included in the items percentage displayed at the end of each level in Heretic.
