Very simple idea, a flare gun that clips on to one of the corner slots of the backpack - like the hydrazine jetpacks - which also requires consumable resources to work.

You see I really like the glow sticks. I like the independence from tethers and they help you scout around if you have limited vehicle mobility like early on underground. The problem however is having walked away from the safety of your craft you now only have your helmet light to search the surroundings, keeping in mind the shadows it casts, you're under pressure to find something. Being able to launch a bright light high up in the cave where it floats for a while would help illuminate everything in a reasonable distance and defeat a few of those otherwise annoying shadows.

It might also make a neat compromise instead of a beacon for finding each other in multiplayer.
