ME3 Lift Grenade

Lift Grenade is a grenade power in Mass Effect 3. It is available to Sentinels (unlocked at Level 6), Javik, Nyreen Kandros, Urdnot Wrex, and Jacob Taylor in the single-player campaign and several classes in the multiplayer mode.

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

  • The Lift Grenades do an admirable amount of damage, but also make weak enemies who are not killed outright float helplessly in the air (similar to a weak Pull). This can be used to not only kill enemies, but disrupt tightly clustered weaker enemies, or stubborn enemies behind cover. It can also separate smaller enemies hiding behind or sticking to a heavy enemy (Atlas, Geth Prime, etc.).
  • The lifting effect of Lift Grenade can be detonated by other powers.
  • The radius can be upgraded to 8 meters--one of the larger grenade blasts in the game. Look for chances to throw it among spread-out enemies to take advantage of this.
  • Thrown Lift Grenades immediately explode if they make a direct hit on an enemy.
  • Lift Grenades inflict greater damage against biotic barriers.
