"Artoo? What happened? I can't see!"
―Luke Skywalker, taken the effects of a flash grenade[src]

A flash grenade was a type of non-lethal grenade which, when activated, created a bright energy flash and loud noise to disorient opponents.[3] It also gave a mild impact although it was not as destructive as thermal detonators, and was capable of disabling droids for a short period of time.[2] One variant of the grenade could split into several fragments and individually explode.[4] When Luke Skywalker went on a mission to Ben Kenobi's home with R2-D2, Boba Fett ambushed them with a flash grenade in an attempt to capture the boy.[2]
