This helmet seems to have a pseudo torch-like effect at the end of the pipes of the helmet. It doesn't give off light to the user unless they are very close to a wall, and even then it's very very minimal- Not even enough to illuminate anything else. While worn, the sound effect of a lit torch will play. Enemies will be able to see the flames from the pipes at night, however- for the cost and it's ability to be worn with a bandana mask, it's still a very good piece of armor early game. In the event you find yourself with an extra 35 metal fragments before you have a work bench, this bad boy can be crafted without one.
