The Frag Grenade is a Throwing gadget introduced in the 8.0.0 update.

Appearance

The Frag Grenade is a small and green bomb, which was manufactured with black grooves. It also has an iron/steel opener. It seems to be based on the real world Mk 2 grenade, except pixelated.

Performance

The player throws the Frag Grenade from their right hand. When it lands, it would emit a small and regular explosion around 1-2 seconds later. The explosion damages the player if they were nearby the explosion.

Strategy

Tips

  • The grenade can't reach very far distances due to looping shot, so use it to close to medium range.
  • Take advantage of this gadget's area damage, use it in small spaces or hallways, where you can eliminate multiple enemies at once.
  • When leveling up to a new tier, don't forget to upgrade it for maximum efficiency.
    • It is best recommended to upgrade this gadget when you reach Level 65.
  • Since this grenade is area damage, you can easily hit opponents by throwing it at their feet.
  • Utilize this against heavily armored opponents, which the explosion will chew through their armor with ease.
  • Try to predict your opponent's movement, as this grenade has travel time.
  • This will do little damage to higher up level players, so only use this when you are low leveled.

Counters

  • Rocket Jump to avoid getting hurt.
  • Quickly switch to a high mobility weapon and flee if you see a grenade being thrown towards you.
  • Use a transportation weapon such as the Sly Wolf or Pulling Sucker Gun to get out of the area damage.
  • The grenade's area of effect is quite disappointing, compared to real-life Mk 2 explosions. After being thrown, you do not have to move too far away from it to avoid the explosion radius.
  • You can easily run away, out of the grenade's explosion radius due to it's 1-2 second explosion cooldown.
  • The grenade is actually really bouncy and can easily bounce across walls, so your enemies will have quite a hard time trying to get an accurate hit.

Trivia

  • It is based off the real life MK 2 Grenade, also known as the "Iron Pineapple".
  • This is the only gadget allowed in Team Strike.
  • They were the only pick up to be an explosive weapon.
  • Although they say they have a 1.8 second detonation time, you can hold it for more than that and the time is for how long it takes to detonate once it is thrown.
  • They can be used to Rocket Jump like with the other explosive weapons. In the case of the grenades, though, players have to wait for the grenade to explode after it is thrown. However, this can be difficult to perform, as the grenade may detonate in a random corner or it may kill you, which makes it not recommended to use grenades as a rocket jumper.
  • They do not explode faster even if they are thrown into a fire.
  • Shooting a thrown grenade will not cause it to explode.
  • A giant replica of the Frag Grenade can be found in Checkmate.
  • It is the only free gadget in the game.
  • It got introduced to battle royal.

In the 9.3.0 update, there was a glitch about trapping an opponent in the KillCam, and the Frag Grenade is involved in this glitch. Basically, the player would have to equip either the Dark Mage Wand or the Wizard Wand. Next, they would have to find an opponent then shoot them with the equipped wand, then quickly tapping on the grenade button.

  • On ExxotikGaming's channel, he made an entire video talking about this glitch, spreading more awareness about this glitch to other players and it had a goal of getting this glitch patched.
  • This glitch was patched in the 9.4.0 update.

There was also another older bug (although harmless) associated with this gadget where if you pick a weapon with a empty clip and throw a grenade before reloading, the reloading audio clip of Firestorm (PG3D) will play, this was patched out in a unknown update.
