How to Get the Homemade DIY Flashbang in Lethal Company

You can get the homemade (DIY) flashbang in Lethal Company as random loot in the facilities you visit on some of the moons in the game.

Here’s where you can find the homemade DIY Flashbang in Lethal Company.

How Does the Homemade DIY Flashbang Function in Lethal Company?

Homemade DIY Flashbang looks like a Molotov Cocktail, but do not be fooled. It works differently than the above-mentioned stun grenade. As soon as you take that contraption cork out of the bottle, the flashbang will detonate, blinding you and everyone around you, and will deal a handful of damage to you, so try not to be critically injured while handling this device. This also means that you cannot throw the Homemade DIY Flashbang in Lethal Company. Here’s what it looks like while being equipped:

Best Use for Homemade DIY Flashbang in Lethal Company

If you stumble upon this homemade DIY flashbang, notify your teammates because having a “get out of jail free” card against most of the enemies in Lethal Company can pretty much be considered vital information. If you already have a stun grenade or a zap gun, pass this device to a crewmate who is defenseless.

If possible, try to plan this device’s deployment so that you can keep running in a safe, straight line after it detonates until the flash effect clears from your screen because staying with the stunned monster is pretty disadvantageous.
