- Friendly fire counts.

- Explosive devices that require you to manually light a fuse are NOT ALLOWED.
“Distraction” grenades, like the Hakkotsu Thunder B, Bang 22, and even Enola Gaye EG67 are encouraged. REMEMBER TO POLICE YOUR USED GRENADE (and smoke canisters).
Blast Radius rules:
- If you are within 10’ of a grenade that explodes, you are hit.
- If a grenade explodes inside a building or bunker, everyone in that area is hit (even if you may be beyond the blast radius). If a grenade goes off on the other side of a solid man-made barrier (pallets, tires, etc., you are NOT hit.)
- Example: If you and your squad are defending Outpost Omar and a grenade successfully detonates inside the Outpost, your squad was just wiped. However, if said grenade successfully detonates on the outside of one of the Outpost’s walls (the metal, crates, tires, or even the brush wall), you’re all fine.
Field management will experiment further, so these guidelines may be updated.
