What's the deal with flash bangs?

#11PefrogPosted 3/3/2013 11:38:30 AM
I know that they blind people and take away like 5 health. I know that they are improved with explosive focus. I know that they can blind people through floors and walls. I know that you can turn your back to a thrown flash bang and it won't blind you. What I don't understand is if you hit someone that it may not blind them and there are other times when they seem like they don't work. Anyone have answers for this?

I hate tootsie pops. You know what's awesome? Chocolate-covered pretzels.

Almost any pretzel is good, Loremas, heh.

I'm pretty sure they don't actually do damage.
There's a glitch where weapons can be credited for a kill, when they hit nearly the same time as the killing blow.

Also, they're just so unreliable :|

I've never caught onto the whole "won't blind you if you if your back is turned" but maybe that has something to do with it.

They are deadly annoying. You can't do anything about it. Except blindly fire shots and go all bunny.

Well, you don't have to fire entirely blind. Move the cursor around untill it changes red, then fire. This way you can still "aim" while being blinded.

That's very hard to master, though. Especially when the player could be behind you or far on the side. I started spraying everywhere with a SCAR when I got blinded today without luck.
