"Large shells for use with the grenade launcher. Emits a blinding flash and deafening noise upon impact."
— Item examination
Flash Rounds is an item in Resident Evil 5. These are special rounds that can be purchased from the Item Management screen after being found in a chest near one of the moving statues in Chapter 4-1. They function like Flash Grenades; Blinding common enemies and instantly killing the Plaga. Per slot, more can be carried than hand tossed grenades, and they are more precise due to the straight-line nature of the rounds. These rounds are also used by Excella Gionne in "The Mercenaries Reunion".
