Grenades are a Consumable thrown by Prospectors. There are 4 different types of Grenades, each with a unique effect.

  1. The Frag Grenade, which explodes after a short delay, dealing explosive damage in an area. There are three different frag grenades: the Light Grenade (Uncommon), Standard Grenade (Rare), and Assault Grenade (Exotic).
  2. The Gas Grenade, which produces a poisonous cloud dealing damage around its position.
  3. The Smoke Grenade, which creates an opaque cloud of smoke around its position.
  4. The Audio Decoy, which produces different gun and monster sounds around its position.
  5. The Howler Grenade, which slows and disorients in an area. It also deals a bit of damage to anyone caught in its range.
