Details Edit

McCree throws a grenade that does damage and stuns enemies for 0.7 seconds, interrupting whatever ability they were using. The grenade explodes regardless of whether or not it made contact with anything. After throwing the grenade, McCree has a 0.35 second delay before he can use alternate fire again.

Trivia Edit

  • The Flashbang is a non-lethal grenade once employed by Overwatch.[1]
