Frag Grenade training is a tier 1 equipment expertise training option in Battlefield Play4Free available for all four kits. It allows the soldier to equip and use hand grenades that have a five second fuse to explode when thrown.
Unlike in some first person shooters, frag grenades cannot be cooked and are instead thrown when a player uses them in a noticeable arc. With a throwing range of around 50 meters and a blast radius of about 5 meters, frag grenades pose a great threat to infantry and light vehicles such as the FAV or HMMWV and their occupants. Grenades can even destroy heavy armor if a player is lucky.
Early on, a player should invest at least one training point into frag grenades as they can be uses to assault flags or soften up infantry targets. However, they should not be used to charge in to battle with as an enemy will kill the thrower or dodge the explosion if they see the grenade coming, making them best for retreating or just before contact.
They can also be used in conjunction with smoke grenades to kill anyone unfortunate to be caught in the smoke when assaulting a control point. Further increases in rank increase the number of grenades a soldier carries per life and increases the damage done to vehicles by grenades.
