Fires explosive rounds in the shape of grenade-like spheres affected by gravity. Each shot fired consumes three rounds of ammunition. Upon striking a wall, floor, or obstacle, the Grenadier's shot will bounce. After the second such bounce, it will quickly lose momentum and roll to a stop. Upon striking an enemy at any point in its trajectory, or one second after coming to a stop, the shot explodes.
   
Unlike other weapons which use the Torgue barrel to fire rockets, the Grenadier fires grenades, launching them in an arcing trajectory which allows them to be fired at enemies in cover. Grenades have a slight time delay if they do not strike an enemy, and will bounce off walls and surfaces. Grenades can be elemental. Grenadier weapons always have a remarkably high resale value for no particular reason, making them good for sale. In combat, the extremely high ammo use is not justified by the very mediocre damage they output, even on specialized characters like Axton, so their best use would be as money fodder.

Upon exploding, the shot delivers 100% of its gun damage value as splash damage in a small radius. The shot inflicts no additional impact damage upon a direct hit. Bonuses to grenade or splash damage will not increase the damage delivered, nor will bonuses to rocket launcher damage. Bonuses to gun damage such as Axton's [[Impact (Axton)|Impact]] skill, however, will increase damage delivered.

Grenadier is the title of a group of assault rifles in Borderlands 2. They are manufactured exclusively by Dahl, and use the Torgue barrel. The Grenadier is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

Fires explosive rounds in the shape of grenade-like spheres affected by gravity. Each shot fired consumes three rounds of ammunition. Upon striking a wall, floor, or obstacle, the Grenadier's shot will bounce. After the second such bounce, it will quickly lose momentum and roll to a stop. Upon striking an enemy at any point in its trajectory, or one second after coming to a stop, the shot explodes.

Upon exploding, the shot delivers 100% of its gun damage value as splash damage in a small radius. The shot inflicts no additional impact damage upon a direct hit. Bonuses to grenade or splash damage will not increase the damage delivered, nor will bonuses to rocket launcher damage. Bonuses to gun damage such as Axton's Impact skill, however, will increase damage delivered.

Notes

  • An explosive Grenadier receives bonuses from Axton's Duty Calls skill. Grenadiers of other elements do not receive such bonuses, however.
  • Grenadiers have an incredibly high selling price compared to other assault rifles of the same level and rarity. The Grenadier shares this attribute with its cousin the Cannon.
  • Like all assault rifles with the Torgue Torpedo barrel, detonating Grenadier projectiles can be absorbed by an Absorption Shield, which will convert them into rocket launcher ammunition insead of assault rifle ammunition.
