Grenades are best used when clearing out large groups of enemies defending a point. Players should be careful that there are no allies nearby before they throw grenades, and should also be aware of nearby objects that a badly thrown grenade might bounce off of, back towards the player.
Grenades can also damage and destroy APCs.
The grenades used by Valor are modern U.S. Military "Baseball" grenades, Raven's grenades are likely surplus "Pineapple" grenades left over from WWII from the Allies' militaries. S.V.E.R grenades are NOT fragmentation grenades at all; they are white phosphorus grenades that are basicly burst incendiary weapons, however any difference in the grenades are purely asthetic.
