In the Campaign the Flashbang is not usable to the player, but in Dynamic Door Breaching it is used by other soldiers in campaign. Flashbangs are the grenade type for the Point Man class. Each Point Man is given 2 flashbangs which are thrown to blind and disorient enemies. It is useful against groups as the range of a flashbang is larger than that of a frag grenade. Being a non-leathal weapon, it can be useful in Real Ops mode where friendly fire is enabled.
