Game information


The Grenade, also referred to as Bouncer or Extractor in Combine terminology, is a Combine weapon featured in Half-Life: Alyx.


The Grenade is a forerunner of the Half-Life 2 grenade. Unlike its later counterpart, it's predominantly yellow in color and sports a rotund shape with a rectangular pin and handle attached to one side. Unarmed, it features several glowing orange slits on the side and several smaller orange lights around the center priming button that easily identify it. There are also five blue lights arranged in a circle on either sides which, when primed, will light up one by one, acting as a timer. When being activated, the grenade releases the spoon and the entire handle while the center mechanisms expand outward, becoming more spherical in shape. It also begins emitting a loud rhythmic beep and a red light, much like its successor. After a period of around 4-5 seconds after priming, the grenade will detonate. Upon detonation, it deals heavy damage, enough to take down most kinds of enemies.

Apart from the players themselves, hostiles such as the Combine Grunt are also capable of tossing grenades. When used by an enemy, their fuses are drastically longer, allowing the player to catch thrown grenades and throw them back at their attackers, either with the Gravity Gloves or with their hands. The grenades carried by Combine units can be shot, which results in the soldier comically fumbling before the grenade violently explodes, killing himself and anyone nearby. Grenades can be used with the Shotgun, with the former acting as projectiles and the latter as a launcher. Once launched from the Shotgun, grenades would explode instantly upon contact with another object.
