Report: Destiny 2 Grenades Detailed, Five Categories Revealed

Share this:

Love them or hate them, Destiny 2 grenades are a key element of combat. They either kill enemies outright, or help weaken them for a follow-up attack. We’ve now got more information on how Destiny 2 grenades will work. 

All of this info was shared by Reddit user “namasuki”, who has managed to secure an early copy of the Destiny 2 GameStop guide. 

While specifics vary, grenades generally fall into at least one of five basic categories:

Seeker grenades produce one or more projectiles that home in on nearby foes. They’re great for blind (or panicked) tosses near a suspected enemy location.

Persistent grenades produce damaging fields or other lasting effects. They’re useful map control tools, perfect for blocking off chokepoints or chasing opponents from strategically important locations.

Blast grenades produce a straightforward explosion. They tend to deal fairly high damage.

Sticky grenades can attach to targets. They take a bit of skill to use, but a well-thrown sticky grenade usually deals considerable damage. 

Status grenades afflict enemies with temporary effects. The clearest examples are both found in Titan Subclasses: the Striker’s Flashbang Grenade disorients enemies, and the Sentinel’s Suppressor Grenade prevents enemies from using Abilities. 

Some of those grenade types sound like a nightmare for enemy players in PvP. I’m especially not looking forward to the Suppressor Grenade!

Destiny 2 releases on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6. The PC release is scheduled for October 24.
