ME3 Frag Grenade

Frag Grenade is a grenade power in Mass Effect 3. The Soldier throws a shrapnel-packed grenade that rips enemies to pieces.

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.
