Hand Flares are a deployable object, thrown as a grenade, featured in Battlefield 4. They can be used to designate specific areas or illuminate dark areas in maps. It takes the slot of the grenade.
At Gamescom 2013, commentator Corey Dunn mentioned that the hand flare is capable of burning infantry. However in the actual game, they don't do any damage.
