Changes[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- The Shockwave Grenade is a better attack/retreat option than the Impulse Grenade, as it knocks you farther and doesn't cause any fall damage.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This is the ninth item to be unvaulted, following the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle.
- The Shockwave Grenade seems to be made of Hop Rocks. Since it gives similar glowing effects to players after being used, and because the rocks that are inside of the Shockwave Grenades are very similar to a Hop Rock.
- In Chapter 2 Season 3, a weapon was added called the Kit's Shockwave Launcher. It fires Shockwave Grenades, but it uses Rockets as ammo.
