Proximity Grenades do less damage, but will detonate early if close to an enemy.— In-game description

The Proximity Grenade (sometimes abbreviated "Proxy Grenade") is an unlockable belt item for the Soldier class. It does less damage than both the Grenade XL and the Anti-Personnel Grenade, but will detonate early if close to an enemy. Despite the fact they look like much like Sticky Grenades, their trajectory is just like that of normal grenades and they bounce off surfaces.

Upgrades[edit]

Tactics[edit]

  • The proximity grenade is fantastic in open areas such as the midfield. Hitting enemies in wide open areas can be difficult with the other two grenades the soldier can equip is difficult since they are on a set timer, but the proximity grenades allow the soldier to worry only about accuracy, not timing.
  • The proximity grenades are useful for flag defense, as it gives the soldier a much larger window to "catch" an enemy capper.
  • The role of Soldier on Flag is only possible when using the proximity grenade.
