A flashbomb is a small bomb that can be thrown in front of a monster's face to stun it for a good amount of time. While a monster is stunned there will be stars above it's head, and it will spam attack or idle moves.
 How to get Them
The hunter can get flashbombs by:
- Buying them from the Peddling Granny, note that her inventory switches every quest.
- Make them yourself, combine one flash bug with bomb material. Bomb material can be bought from the granny as well, and flash bugs can be found in bug patches.
The flash bomb, like previously stated, stuns a monster for a good amount of time. To stun the desired monster the hunter must aim for bomb correctly and throw it in front of the face. Failure to do so will result in no effect.
Flashbombs come in handy when stopping charges or getting some extra hits in, so it's always a good idea to bring some on your next hunt.
