Using It For Small Rooms May Be Inefficient

- Small rooms don't have a lot of angles to cover.
- Enemies in small spaces are easy to spot & engage.
- You'll seldom find a lot of enemies in 1 small room.
Use When Entering Larger Rooms
Larger rooms has multiple fields of fire you must cover. Use Flash Grenade when you enter large rooms to maximize your chance of survival. As flash grenade effects the user as well, don't throw it when you've entered the room.
Expect To Effect 1 Corner Only
Flash Grenade's are of effect isn't enough to fill entire rooms, so son't expect to find all enemies in the area to be dazzled. Instead, use it to disorient enemies in one corner so you can focus on enemies on the other corner.
