The Grenade are the main optional weapon in Metal Slug.


This is a grenade called the "Stielhandgranate." The main advantage that these stick grenades have over the regular "pineapple" or egg grenade is that they can be thrown much farther with predictable accuracy. The downside is that it does not contain any fragmentation dudded onto its casing, which means that it does less damage against infantry than the fragmentation grenades or "pineapples." Nevertheless, these contraptions, filled with 165-grams of explosive TNT, prove very versatile against any opposition. They are limited, and can save your life in the worst situations, so use it wisely. If the player uses certain vehicles, the secondary weapon changes into the weapon specific to that of the vehicle (a cannon for SV 001 Metal Slug, or torpedo for the Submarine Slug). Some vehicles however, still use the grenade as their secondary weapon.

The grenade is also among the first ordnance used by the Rebel to attack. The Rebel's version is shaped like WWII Mills bomb, albeit with a flashier appearance. It doesn't pack much punch (as the blast effect is somewhat negated).
