Flashbangs, referred to in-code as Flare Bombs, are blue glowing spheres found growing on stems in the darkest areas of the world. They create bright flashes of light when thrown, and can be used to incapacitate certain creatures.

Function[edit | edit source]

Utility[edit | edit source]

When thrown, Flashbangs ignite in a bright blue flash, briefly illuminating the entire screen. The flash of light blinds all creatures, including Guardian icon.png Guardians, for a short time. This gives Slugcat head.png Slugcat some time to escape or attack. Flashbangs instantly kill Coalescipede icon.png Coalescipedes and Big Spider icon.png Big Spiders.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Flashbangs can trigger Grenade icon.pngExplosive Spear icon.png Explosives and are triggered by them, but are not triggered by Spear icon.png Spears or other Flashbangs.
  • Unlike their smaller counterparts, Spitter Spider icon.png Spitter Spiders and DLC icon.png Mother Spider icon.png Mother Spiders are unaffected by Flashbangs.
  • The flash created by Flashbangs is not stopped by walls, meaning creatures can be blinded through them.
