Grenades are items used by all classes, which explode after being thrown, causing damage or impairing sight after hitting the ground. Grenades have a wide variety of uses, from flushing out bunkers to blinding the enemy, the grenade always has it's place on the battlefield.
The Rifleman can throw grenades faster and farther than any other class.
The AN-M8 HC is a smoke grenade, causing no damage but heavily impairing the sight of everyone with thick clouds of white smoke within the zone at which the grenade has detonated. The AN-M8 HC looks similar to the MK3A2, but is white and yellow instead of black and yellow.
The XM49 Hakuen is a smoke grenade that immediately releases smoke when thrown. It is one of the most commonly seen smoke grenades in AVA, as well as the being most efficient one of it's type. The XM49 has it's shape based off the Clan Grenades.
The M67 is probably the most common grenade used by players. The M67 causes damage to those within 5m of the blast. Despite its lethal range, the M67 does take a rather long time to detonate (roughly 4 seconds), which gives enemies enough time to get out of the blast radius and live. The M67 comes in two types; the standard M67 and the "Supply" M67, which perform almost identically with the supply grenade having a higher mobility. The M67 is circular and green, and currently the only grenade to not feature text upon its surface.
There are various skins for M67 that are being released.
The MK3A2 is a grenade with different functions and features than the counterpart it is constantly compared to, the M67. Unlike the M67, the MK3A2 explodes almost immediately upon being thrown (roughly 2 seconds after being thrown), making it an ideal weapon to toss during a CQB encounter or short flight path. However, the MK3A2 has a severely smaller blast radius than the M67, and should be used only with discretion if a player is aiming for kills. The MK3A2 also blinds enemy soldiers within its lethal radius, giving the grenade an extended advantage in breaching heavy defenses. The MK3A2 is shaped like a thick tube, colored black with a strip of yellow along the width of the grenade.
