Smoke Grenade is a grenade type weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS.

Currently, the smoke is client side, not server side. Smoke also cannot be seen from a certain distance, this means it's only useful during mid-range combat.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Smoke grenades are a throwable device packed with a mixture of potassium chlorate, lactose, and typically a dye for signalling. The chemicals mix with air to create a smoke screen that temporarily removes battlefield awareness.

    • Decreased fuse time from 3 seconds to 1 second.

Pre-release #32 (Season 4 - Update 4.2) - vN/A
