M9 HE-DP Fragmentation Grenade Handling
By: Mhaddy
Return to the strategy listing.

The title says it all. This is your stock human grenade. While usually not as useful as the plasma grenade, the frag nonetheless does have its advantages; the main one being that it has a considerably shorter fuse. An excellent device for thinning out large groups of Grunts or dispersing swarms of Jackals, the frag can also be put to devastating effect in an anti-vehicular role. Not quite skilled enough to stick a plasma to that passing Warthog? No problem - flip a frag grenade at it, and as long as you're close, up they go. Observe the usual rules of grenading: i.e. don't throw it at your feet, use rebounds to your advantage instead of against it, etc.

Easy to find in human-controlled areas, scarcer in mainly Covenant ones.

One warning: a frag grenade will not take out a tank. Not in one hit, anyway. Plan accordingly.

Pros: Short fuse, good concussion, an effective vehicle-disabler.

Cons: Not as lethal as plasmas, not as effective against shields, cannot be "attached", difficult to find when in Covenant territories.

Usage: Disrupt vehicles with a well-placed frag, send swarms of Covenant or Flood into the air with a bang. Usually not so wise to use against single enemies.

For: Everyone.
