Grenades are the favorite weapon of Humans, but can be used by other populations as well. While Humans can replenish their supply of grenades daily by unknown means,2) other populations usually have to find grenades in the jungle or have to buy them from Eboy.
The most commonly encountered kinds of grenades are:
Bang Grenade: This grenade generates a flash and a concussive blast, useful for stunning an opponent.
Whoomph Grenade: This grenade is incendiary and causes everything in its blast range to catch on fire. Unlike the other grenades, this one has a multi-round effect as the opponent tries to swat out the flames, so it is best used early in a fight for maximum damage.

Sightings have been reported on the Island of a mysterious figure named "Old Saint Nades"7), a fat Human/Squat hybrid. Allegedly, he dresses in red, calls people hos, stockpiles his grenades, and gives them all out on Full Metal Lion's birthday. No one has ever witnessed this event of altruism, possibly because Full Metal Lion can't remember his birthday.
