Grenades are throw-able weapons that explode after a certain amount of time and harm enemies and other players permanently and/or temporarily. There are currently six types of grenades in the game.
Some grenades are non-lethal and can only disorient enemies, which can prove invaluable in itself, while others can specifically inflict lethal damage. With the exception of Fragmentation Grenades, all grenades are specialty variants and can only be obtained from scavenging, so they must be used sparingly. Most enemies tend to flee from the explosive radius of an armed grenade. Shooting an enemy can stagger them and prevent them from fleeing until the grenade explodes, and enemies like the Cleaner Incinerator and Riker Guard are slow and do not flee from the explosive radius.
