It's time to fix Mccree's Flashbang

General Discussion
Hello everyone, hope you all are doing fine. Today I wanna discuss about the bugs still existing with Mccree's Flashbang even after he received some buffs.
Some of them I've seen myself and are so annoying and always tilts me whenever I play him.
Here are the bugs with their respective evidences:
  • Target doesn't get stunned by the flashbang even when it's properly aimed on it
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN9s1MnO8uQ

  • Target still gets momentum even after being stunned and bounces rather than being stopped in one place
  • https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/UncomfortableGreatErin
    Note: This has also been observed on Genji, Tracer, Doomfist, Junkrat, Pharah and D.Va.

  • Target gets stunned after completing their ability animation(This includes Genji's Swift Strike, Doomfist's Rocket Punch and Uppercut)
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjcNRmABjIQ

    Note: In Genji's case, he'll always dash through you first and then will get stunned behind even though his dash animation should be cancelled right after being stunned. Same is the case with Doomfist's rocket punch, he'll always get stunned after punching you. Rein's charge will get stopped right after being stunned but Genji's Dash and Doomfist's Rocket Punch will not.

    So after seeing the clips above, I truly think that the flashbang is still broken and requires fixes asap.
    Note: Spamming 'Git Gud!' or 'Learn how to aim' won't change or solve anything. When something is bugged, it's definitely requires fixes.

    Thanks for reading this post and have fun while enjoying the Winter Event :)
    Totally agree. Stun is so unreliable its incredible its set on a 10sec cool down..
    The flashbang is most definitely working as intended. Learn not to be wasteful and also mindful of others' abilities.
    Iv had it against mercy once before. She was slowly gliding to the ground i flashed and instantly moved cursor to where her head would have been if she was standing on the ground expecting her to just drop but instead she stayed floating slowly to the ground but was stunned.

    Working as intended? So this means that rein shouldn't also be stunned at the spot when he's charging towards you, xd and I'm pretty sure that you ignored those clips and didn't even bothered to watch them once, that I've given in my post.

    One is most definitely a latency issue. The other three are wasted flashbangs.

    Sure, take your time pal.
    2 things I never really understood:

    1) Why can Ana throw her grenade in distance but not McCree?

    2) Why does he have a long CD but not most of the other heroes?
    Have this happened to me plenty of times, especially with doomfist, he ends his animation killing me or one of my teammates and then he gets stunned and Genji too, he should just stop midair and drop to the ground but he finishes his swift strike and gets stunned behind me or wherever he was going

    Feels bad than an already unreliable ability and probably the only way Mccree has to safe himself doesn't work correctly
    flashbang should end all momentum, that does seem a bug to me.

    I dont care about realism, stuns should STUN.

    Going to bump this for later then. Don't have much time right now to go over it all.

    Same problem happens if you freeze Mercy, she won't drop like the frozen block you'd expect but will instead float down like a wee feather.

    Rein's charge will get stopped right after being stunned but Genji's Dash and Doomfist's Rocket Punch will not.


    These also apply to Ana sleep (Genji and DF will still dash/punch if slept, Rein gets interrupted) Though if the punch or dash kills Ana sleep just disappears.

    CC works in mysterious ways.
    fb is trash, roll is useless, non-regs affect him more than anyone, zero mobility, low hp... and now you have to play against moira and her orbs too...

    Literally unplayable.

    Ok
    Get ready for a blue post soon. Since youre pointing out a real hero flaw on a hero that isnt symmetra, so it'll get fixed in at least less than 2 months.

    Blizzard should fix this ability asap, it should work for what it’s actually intended.

    McCree? "!@#$ that guy". It took a whole year to improve that damn DeadEye and adjust the stun a bit(which didn't do much anyway)

    Blah. I hate Spumwacks McCree rant. I mean pocket dust? And yes its in mccrees character to use flashbangs and shoot people in the back.

    Anyway lol

    At least your hero has a gun that makes him viable. His gun is pretty powerful that even with an underwhelming skillset hes powerful.

    Dude that’s what this post is asking for, fix the flash bang rather than completely ignoring it
    Yeah, I agree.
    Sometimes I'm flashing people and its CLEAR that it hit them and doesn't register.

    Also, shaving a couple of seconds off wouldn't hurt if you want him to be a designated Anti-Flanker.
