General[edit | edit source]
The 6-M7 Frag Grenade has a spherical steel body that contains 6.5 ounces of composition B explosive. The fuse is specifically designed for use with the fragmentation grenade. It weighs 14 ounces in total and has a safety clip to prevent the pin on the grenade from being pulled accidentally. It can be thrown 30 to 35 meters by the average male soldier. Its fuse delays detonation between 4 and 5 seconds after the spoon is released. Steel fragments are provided by the grenade body and produce an injury radius of 15 meters, with a fatality radius of 5 meters. However, the 6-M7 grenade cannot be combined with a tripwire as of v1.07.
- How to Use
Prior to throwing, the grenade must have its pin pulled in order to arm the device, which is done by utilizing the action button (by default). Grenades currently don't detonate inside the thrower's hand or next to other grenades, even when the pin is pulled. Throwing a Grenade will result in a high arc that can be difficult to predict without practice. It is advised to use grenades outside, as most walls and floors will block the damage of the explosion. The use of a grenade on an entrenched enemy/player can cause instant death, unconsciousness, injury, or hearing loss/blurred vision that can make flanking or charging the target easier or more effective. Careful judgement about your distance to the explosion needs to be considered especially if you are throwing without cover as the damaging radius of the grenade is up to 15 meters.
