Destiny 2 Best Grenade Testing & Analysis Ranks All 27 Types

Destiny 2 character customization allows for an assortment of grenades to be equipped. Each subclass has three different grenades available to them, which makes for a total of 27 grenades in the game. 

When it comes to determining the most powerful grenade and which class it belongs to, a great amount of testing has to be done. This is where Reddit user DrFace007, and two friends, come in. They’ve tried out every grenade type and measured the damage. DrFace007 then compiled the results into a handy list, which shows that the Nightstalker Hunter’s Voidwall takes the win.
