- "An explosive grenade that damages and blinds nearby targets."
- — In-game description
Flashbang Grenades are a type of Arc Grenade Ability. Flashbang grenades bounce once on impact and explode soon after, dealing damage and blinding enemies (and the player, if too close) for a short time. Combatants will not shoot for the duration of the grenade effect and move slowly and erratically. Players will still be able to move and shoot after the flashbang has gone off.
- The Touch of Thunder Striker Aspect causes the grenade to emit another blinding burst upon its first bounce.
