Grenades are explosive weapons in Shank that inflict heavy damage on enemies and player itself. Shank have 3 grenades at the start of the game, and later can hold up to 5 grenades.

Grenades are best used when fighting big enemies that uses shotguns and shields. Grenades can be obtained throughout the world or after killing regular enemies that have grenades. Grenades also serve as a stunner to Bosses and Gigantes as well as crowds of enemies.

Note: Standing will cause you to throw a grenade and crouching will cause you to roll a grenade which is good for enemies who tend to dodge a lot.
