|This article is about the power available to the Soldier class. For the N7 Destroyer's grenade power, see Multi-Frag Grenade.|
Grenade powers do not have a recharge time and, thus, can be used immediately at any time, provided grenades are available. Using the power consumes 1 grenade each time.

Player Notes Edit
- As with all grenades, Frag Grenades specialize in taking out squads of enemies, usually weaker ones. Frag Grenades thrown by players usually detonate 1 second after they come into contact with a surface.
- One useful thing about Frag Grenades is that they will detonate immediately upon directly hitting an enemy. This is extremely useful and necessary when combating enemies with high health/shields/armor. Pairing this ability with the appropriate upgrades makes it deadly for players skilled with its use.
- Though this power is available to Admiral Anderson during the prologue, he will have no grenades, rendering it useless.
- If the grenade kills a target that is on fire (by means of Incinerate, Inferno Grenade or Incendiary Ammo) then a Fire Explosion will be produced. This will create a larger explosion, yielding more damage as well as producing several small fireballs (much like an Inferno Grenade) which will travel a short distance from the explosion.
- Note that the Rank 6 Shield Overload evolution only increases damage to shields, not barriers, unlike with most powers with similar evolutions.
