The Flashbang Grenade (or the ETS FG02 Flashbang) is a type of Weapon in SCP: Secret Laboratory. It is a throwable explosive device used to temporary blind any opponents that were near the grenade when it goes off.

In Game[edit]

The Flashbang Grenade can be thrown a long distance by pressing Left Click.png Left Click, or a shorter distance by pressing Right Click.png Right Click.

After being thrown, the Flashbang Grenade takes 3 seconds to go off (It is possible to hold down the throw button, but this will not cook the grenade. It simply allows the player to have more control over timing. It will still take 3 seconds to explode after being thrown). Players affected by the Flashbang Grenade will be given both the Deafen Makes all noises muffled and quiet for a short time and Flashed Effect Blinds the player for a short time Status Effects. Players will also be given the Blinded Effect Blurs player's vision, but this effect last the same time as the Flash Effect, making it hard to notice.

The duration of these Status Effects depends on multiple factors.
The full flash lasts 5 seconds, and is achieved if the opponent is looking at the Flashbang Grenade within a distance equal or inferior to that of a hallway's length from it.
However, this doesn't mean that being further than a hallway distance away will nullify the flash, as the flash distance is quite large: sometimes players who didn't even see the Flashbang Grenade may still get blinded, but the flash from this distance lasts less than four seconds. The Flashbang Grenade's blast radius is five times larger on Surface than inside the underground section of Site-02.

SCP-079 is immune to Flashbang Grenades. Despite being blind, SCP-939 is not immune to Flashbang Grenades.
This is because SCP-939 instances are known to be very sensitive to bright lights due to being covered in eyespots.

By pressing R before the grenade is thrown, the player will reinsert the pin, cancelling the throw.
