Slinger ammo that flashes brightly on impact. Fire it right under a monster's nose to blind it.
When used from the Item Bar while in the field, Flash Pods will be loaded into the Slinger, and can then be aimed with / / C, and fired with / / . After traveling a short distance, a Flash Pod will detonate in a bright flash. This will often blind a Monster with the Stun Status Effect if it is close or looking in the direction of the detonation. The Stun effect from a Flash Pod does not normally incapacitate a Monster completely, but rather causes it to attack blindly for about 30 seconds. Airborne Monsters affected by Flash Pods will initially fall to the ground and be completely incapacitated for the first 7 seconds of the effect.
The effectiveness of Flash Pods can be enhanced with the Blindsider Skill.
