Notes[]

  • The Grenade can be found in level 35 purple beacon drops.
  • The Grenade's damage and radius makes it particularly useful against grouped up enemies such as Spiders, Titanoboas, and Pulmonoscorpius.
  • The Grenade can't be used underwater, but it's possible to get them into the water if thrown into it.
  • Once the pin is pulled, the player can continue to hold the grenade, but holding it for too long will cause it to detonate in the player's hand. This can be good for blowing up moving targets, but will most likely kill the player holding it.
  • Cosmetically, the player will occasionally toss the grenade up a small bit if the player idles for long enough while holding it.
