The high explosive grenade is the first and most common ammunition for the grenade launcher in Strife: Quest for the Sigil. Each pack of HE grenades adds six shots to the player's supply, up to a total of 30 grenades without an ammo satchel, or 60 when one has been found or purchased. HE grenades can only be fired two at a time, and will fly forward and up in a wide arc. The grenades can bounce off of non-liquid floors, and can deal impact damage repeatedly to enemies upon contact. After a brief delay, the grenades will automatically detonate, dealing a maximum of 192 splash damage over a radius of 192 units. Due to the unwieldy nature and extreme power of this ammo type, use of grenades is best reserved to wide-open areas against large groups of foes, or singular enemies such as bosses.
HE grenades can be purchased at two stores in the game:
- Justin sells HE grenades for 50 gold per 6-shot unit at the Front's ammo store in the New Front Base.
- The weapon smith in the Order Commons sells HE grenades for 100 gold per 6-shot unit.
