Something about Flashbangs

Mkay been playing Left 4 Dead 2 now more than I have in 3 years, and slowly realizing how painful flickering lights are.

I'm not epileptic but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt my eyes.

Is there a way to disable muzzleflash light? I've tried a console command called 
muzzleflash_light 0
but it doesn't seem to do squat.

It doesn't really serve a gameplay purpose other than being a very brief light larger than the flashlight in complete darkness.
But on certain weapons, especially the AK47 that has a slower firing, it can lead to headaches and such.

    Try setting this in console: r_flashlightmuzzleflashfov 120
    Changing this value from 120 to 0 had the effect of removing the flash on the environment when the gun was fired.

    Well it figures, its considered a cheat code for some reason. Can't use it unless sv_cheats is 1.

    Worked for me, I rarely ever play on online servers, and when I do it's on one that has mods and it allows things like these but disallows actual cheats.

    I play online with my gf, and honestly there's no reason to have a useless teammate with you that just gets incapped for dumb reasons so we kick them.
