DescriptionBlinds enemies and impairs hearing. Detonates shortly after being thrown.

Blocks Enemy Vision

Blocks enemy vision

The Flashbang emits a bright light that blocks the vision of those around its area of effect. The affected player's screen turns white, with the effect lasting for 2 seconds. The player can still move and fire while blinded.

Flashbang Tactical Multiplayer Tips

Tactical For Entering & Breaching

As the Flashbang completely blocks the vision of enemy players, this is highly recommended for assaulters or breachers. Aggressive players can use this to disable campers. Note that the Flashbang's effect can be blocked by objects, so ensure that you can land it in an unobscured area.

Turning Has No Effect

Tactical Mask

Turning your back against a Flashbang does not negate its effects. You must either hide behind an obstacle or use the Tactical Mask perk to reduce its effects.

Stun Grenade Vs. Flashbang

Stun GrenadeFlashbang
- Cannot be blocked by objects
- Affects enemy aim
- Slows down enemies
- Can be blocked by objects
- Affects vision
- Does not affect speed

The Stun Grenade heavily curtails the ability of a player in a few seconds. Its effects are also not blocked by objects unlike the Flashbang. Simply put, if you are thinking of playing defensibly, try the Stun Grenade. On the other hand, if you're more aggressive, take the Flashbang instead.
