Flash Bangs are an available type of explosive in Spec Ops: The Line.


Flash Bangs can be used to blind enemies with a flash of light, essentially making them defenseless targets that can be easily killed. Flash Bangs are non-lethal and are used strictly for tactical advantage.


  • Due to their short "fuse", they may detonate in mid air if attempted to be thrown over long distances.
  • Walker and his squadmates can be stunned by their own grenades.
  • In the single player, Flash Bangs are obtained by finding specially marked grenade crates. In multiplayer, they are replenished by taking grenade boxes.
  • There is a special squad command called "Stun Combo" that Walker can order, in which Adams will throw a flash bang into group of enemies.
