I've seen this many times where players flash a place, for example around a corner, but then don't rush the place they just flashed. Isn't the whole point of a flashbang is to blind the enemy and then rush? I just think of this behaviour as a waste of good flashbangs. Can someone tell me why people do this type of thing?

    Because they aren't brave enough to run in I suppose.

    I flash to buy myself time sometimes. if i'm outnumbered i'll throw flashes in hope that they will stay in that place waiting for someone to come in. while i can find another route.

    I notice that happens alot on French and German servers, as a British SAS fan, I flash and run in, if I die, who cares you respwan.

    Flashing and rushing works about 70% of the time, theres always that off chance or gay thing where flashes might not work or an enemies turns away at the right time.

    I sometimes do use flashes to make a hasty retreat aswell if being followed.

    But no, I never just throw flashes to no purpose, but I also do use them to help other people, like if some noobs runs out with no support a cover I throw a flash in there for him.

    The kind of people who use flashbangs are various and of different skill levels!

    -The NOOOOOOB: Buys a lot of flashbangs (or so he thinks) and micspams when he only finds two. Then promptly goes about throwing them all over the place and pissing people off by teamflashing and getting a lot of decent players killed.

    -The COWARD: At least knows that two is the maximum limit and uses them properly. Then, blocks the passageway by standing there, crouching, and hoping to kill somebody. Of course, he gets headshotted, and gets everyone behind him killed.

    -The SHOPPER: Buys flashbangs, but never uses them, gets killed, and loses them. Well... okay.

    -The LEET: Buys flashbangs, chucks them into perfect places and proceeds to kill everyone with one-shot headshots. Annoying for a completely different reason : o

    I don't flash, I wait for the rest of my team to run out so that I can see if the coast is clear.

    I barely ever use flashbang, but I think they might not rush if the person is like rapidly firing everywhere and the person who threw the flash has low hp? O.o Lol.
