"Timed explosive that destroys organic material while minimizing damage to structures."

Pulse Grenade Launcher is a semi-automatic grenade launcher that shoots a charged energy ball. The resulting explosion damages biological material within the blast radius but causes no harm to structures.[1]


Originally created by the Marauders, the Pulse Grenade Launcher serves as an anti-personnel weapon causing damage overtime. Unlike other explosive-based weapons, the Pulse Grenade causes no damage to structures. This makes it useful in defensive situations or when you need to attack enemies without causing collateral damage, such as when crossing bridges or catwalks.
