Grenades are throwable explosives that can be found as items. There are currently three types of grenades; the Frag Grenade, the Thermite Grenade, and the Arc Star.

Grenades can be accessed by holding G or Right. You can then use the fire button on PC, RT for XBOX or R2 for the PS4 to aim and throw.

Frag Grenade[edit | edit source]

Description Frag Grenades are throwable ordnance that explode shortly after being thrown, dealing up to 100 damage. It also deals 10 damage on impact with the grenade itself.

  • The explosion is able to destroy doors.
  • You may only hold up to two Frag Grenades per inventory slot.

  • Frag Grenades also can bounce or roll on the environment before detonating.

Thermite Grenade[edit | edit source]

Type Throwables
Ignition Time Contact with ground
Description An impact grenade that explodes into a fiery horizontal line upon contact, applying a 25 damage-over-time burn effect to all those affected.

  • It can cause damage to doors.
  • It ignores Knockdown Shields (although it still damages the shield health) and will damage the health of those affected.
  • You may only hold up to two Thermite Grenades per inventory slot.

  • It can be useful to seal off an enclosed area such as a doorway to prevent enemies from pushing a position, as well as a mild deterrent to break line of sight of an enemy.
  • If an enemy is body blocking a door, you can throw a Thermite at the bottom of the door. It will destroy the door and burn the enemy.

Arc Star[edit | edit source]

Type Throwables
Ignition Time 2.8 seconds
Description Arc Stars are throwable ordnance which are able to stick to surfaces and explode with arc energy. Deals 70 damage and slows enemies for 5 seconds.

  • Arc Stars do damage on impact.
  • If the Arc Star sticks to an enemy and has shields, those will be disabled entirely while unshielded players will be downed immediately.
  • The explosion is also able to destroy doors.
  • You may only hold up to two Arc Stars per inventory slot.

  • The explosion's "splash" damage decreases with distance from the Arc Star itself so plan accordingly.
