The Frag Grenade is the Support's grenade.

Description

"The classic frag grenade: throws nasty little bits of metal around, hurting everything."

Flavor Text

"I am sure you all played enough video games before the Outbreak, so you know perfectly well what a frag grenade is. And stop pretending that you didn't. No-one in here is going to believe you."

Technical Information

Damage (Instant Explosion) = 200.
Radius = 9m.
Explosion Falloff = 1 (linear).

Instant Explosion spawns 10 shards. Each shard does 50 points of damage, has speed of 40m/s and bounces off of the surface for 2 times.

Fuze Time = 2 seconds.

Damage Type = Explosive, Piercing (shard).

Weapon Powers:
Melee hit power (explosion) = up to 100.
Melee hit power (shard) = 100.
Stumble power (explosion) = up to 500.
Stumble power (shard) = 1000.

Strategy

The fragmentation grenade, in addition to its explosive blast (which is roughly the same as that of the HE Grenade), also sends out 10 fragments that bounce off walls/obstacles.

Much like the Support's shotguns, frags are most effective when employed in bottlenecks, especially tight corridors. The effect of a frag grenade in a hallway is devastating; in addition to the explosive blast, the fragments, rather than dispersing, will proceed to bounce around said hallway like sharp, deadly pinballs.

Trivia

  • The frag grenade resembles the American Mk 2 "Pineapple" grenade, adopted in 1920. Although used mainly during WWII, they were produced in such large numbers that they saw widespread use until the 1960's, and many examples survive today.
