Grenades are the ammunition used the by the Grenade Launcher in BioShock, and the ammunition used by the Launcher in BioShock 2. The "Frag Grenades" featured in BioShock are crude IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) consisting of tin cans filled with explosives, while the Grenades in BioShock 2 are professionally manufactured ordinance, consisting of an actual grenade encased in a rocket shell. There are three different types of grenades.

Frag Grenades are the base ammunition for the Launcher.

These basic frag grenades are massively damaging, and have a significant blast radius.


BioShock 2 Help Caption

Proximity Mines are an alternate ammunition for the Launcher.

These are effectively used as land-mines, staying primed and ready until an unwitting victim walks too close.


BioShock 2 Help Caption

Heat-seeking Rockets are an alternate ammunition for the Launcher.

These homing missiles are the perfect solution for moving targets, delivering a devastating payload even around corners!

Burial at Sea Edit

In BioShock Infinite's DLC, Burial at Sea - Episode 1 and Episode 2, grenades can be obtained as rare loot but serve no purpose as none of the weapons found in the DLC can utilize them. Their icon resembles the BioShock 2 frag grenade. [Confirmation Needed]
