How to Throw Grenades in Fallout 76
Guns are fine and dandy, but they can only get you so far in fights. If you want a bit more firepower, there’s no going wrong with explosives. Here’s how to throw grenades in Fallout 76.
Grenades, as with every other game, are extremely powerful weapons that explode when thrown in Fallout 76. You can use them offensively or even as a zoning tool to catch your enemies out of position. It’s always a good idea to have a few of them in your inventory, just in case firefights suddenly break out.
How to Throw Grenades
If you already have a grenade, open up your Pip-Boy and select it with either A on Xbox One or X on PS4. You’ll know if you’ve managed to equip it if there’s a small square beside it.
When you have it in your hand, hold down RB or R1 to aim and find your trajectory. To throw it, simply let go of the button. Your explosive will go flying in the air and explode after a set amount of time, depending on how long you held it for, causing some major damage.
Where to Find Grenades
If you’re low on supplies in Fallout 76, you can find these items by looting containers. When exploring the wasteland, you will come across various yellow explosive box containers lying around.
Approach one and check it to find any spare explosives lying about in Fallout 76. On the other hand, you can try bartering for grenades from other players. Just remember that they’ll have to be willing to sell their grenades, though.
How to Craft Grenades
If you can’t find any explosives in Fallout 76, you can just craft them instead. For a typical frag grenade, you will need the following items:
- Adhesive (2)
- Aluminum (1)
- Fertilizer (2)
- Oil (2)
- Spring (1)
You’ll also need the Demolition Expert perk card along with a Tinker’s Workbench to get started. You can find the workbench in Flatwoods, Gilman lumber mill, Morgantown Airport, and Cow Spots Creamery.
There are a total of six different explosives in Fallout 76, including the fragmentation mine. All thrown explosives include:
- Baseball Grenade
- Frag Grenade
- Cryogenic Grenade
- Pulse Grenade
- Plasma Grenade
They are all thrown the same way and have different effects, depending on which one you’re using. There’s really no going wrong with picking any of them, so long as you have a few stocked in your inventory.
