Grenades are available in many capacities, on BG386 they are standard 'high explosive' (HE), and are fired from an under barrel Grenade Launcher fitted to the standard issue M41A/2 Pulse Rifle, although available for all other Pulse Rifles. In this configuration the grenades are primed for impact detonation, allowing for a 'fire and forget' setting, these will also detonate if a marine is near to the fired explosive, an alternative is timed detonation allowing a short time before exploding.
Grenades are constructed from an alloy casing, which hold the HE inside. These are primed for impact or timed detonation, as well as allowing for other configurations. All models Pulse Rifles from M41 Pulse Rifles to M41A/2 Pulse Rifles are equipped and configured to carry and fire Grenades from an under barrel breach, this version of 40mm grenade is also used in the M16 and the MGL Grenade Launcher which can also be equipped with fragmentation and proximity grenades.
Primed for impact detonation mode Grenades need careful targeting as they explode on impact, these are HE Grenades which can prove very useful in combat situations.
In timed detonation mode Grenades can be 'fire and forget' so a target doesn't need to be in 'line of sight'.
