The Fire Grenade, also known as the F-Grenade, is an unlockable weapon in the Battle Mode of Half-Life 2: Survivor. It can be unlocked for the Combine Ranger by reaching A-Class, the Combine Soldier by reaching AA-Class and the Combine Engineer by reaching B-Class. It was included with the game on release. Resistance characters use the S.L.A.M instead.
As most other grenades, the Fire Grenade can be thrown over medium distances by using the primary attack, and can also be dropped near the player with the secondary attack. In most cases, the grenade will immediately explode upon contact with any non-vertical surface, but may also bounce off if the angle of impact is sharp enough. The explosion does not produce any sound and may cause up to 3 points of burn damage.
After explosion, the Fire Grenade will ignite a small area of the impact surface. The fire consists of 6 separate smaller fires, each dealing 14 points of damage, this way the damage dealt to a player will depend on how many of the fires he is touching, reaching 84 if he happens to touch all 6. The damage is dealt every second, and usually not immediately upon touching the fire, thus it is sometimes possible for players to run through without taking any damage at all.
The fire lasts for 30 seconds.
It is difficult to effectively use the Fire Grenade in open areas, but it is extremely useful for blocking narrow passages, preventing enemies from gaining access to certain areas and cutting off their ways of retreat.
Behind the scenes
The Fire Grenade appears to be based on the Molotov Cocktail cut from the Half-Life 2 and available in the playable leak. The same Molotov can also be obtained with cheats in the Survivor's Story Mode, where it uses the Fire Grenade's ammo icon.
The Fire Grenade will not work under water, and the explosion will not deal any damage, although it will still create water splashes and burn decals.
