Grenades Stats and Strategy Guide
Frag grenades, stun grenades, smoke grenades and molotov cocktails all fall to the same category, throwable weapons. Throwable weapons are weapons that can be throwed from a distance and can either deal immediate damage, damage over time or can cause confusion for enemy players. Below are some tips and tricks on how to use each of them properly and effectively.
Stun grenades are grenades that emit very loud sounds and bright light. They are usually used when you’re going to unknown territory and you wanna make sure that you temporarily blind and distract your opponent so that you can safely enter the vicinity. Stun grenades are mostly used inside buildings to flush out enemies from blind spots. You can also use stun grenades in the open but they will be seen by your enemies thus they will be more likely to avoid directly looking at it rendering your stun grenade useless.
Frag grenades deal immediate damage. They can also be used to flush out enemies from inside buildings. The only difference is that it covers less area than the stun grenade. Frag grenades deal a lot of damage and if you can hit a player directly with it, will immediately kill them. You can use frag grenades to finish out wounded opponents that hide behind obstacles.
Smoke grenades spew dense smoke in a specific area obstructing vision in a period of time. You can use this to stealthily get close to your enemies without being detected. You can also use smoke grenades as cover for when you’re getting chased or have to cross an area being closely guarded by enemy players.
Molotovs deal continuous damage in the area it exploded. These can be used to prevent players from camping in a specific area and deter them from staying there. Molotovs will remove players from areas that they have an advantage on.
