— Battlelog description
The M67 Grenade is a grenade featured in Battlefield 3. It is unlocked by default for all kits, and cannot be replaced.
Players have the option to immediately throw a grenade (like the "Quick Slash" for the Knife), equip it as a wielded weapon (like in older games), or assign both actions via key binding. There is an option to hold the grenade on consoles by pressing (PS3), (Xbox) and then holding down . This gives the player an advantage by having time to aim and throw the grenade.
An orange dot indicator marks any active grenades including friendly grenades. At close range (where the player can be killed by the blast), the dot is also surrounded by an animated circle. Nearby players will automatically use voice responses when throwing or sighting a grenade.
With the Frostbite 2 engine and Destruction 3.0, hand grenades, and all other weapons, cause more realistic damage. Grenades can kill players through certain kinds of walls due to blast pressure.
Players can toss the grenade high enough to explode just as it returns to ground. This can be used to surprise pursuers if there is not a low ceiling or obstruction above.
- On Battlefield 3 for consoles, players can hold the grenade as a primary like on the PC by holding R2/Right Trigger to extract the knife and then pressing and . If done correctly, the character should hold the grenade similarly to how the knife is held.
