The Frag Grenade is a type of grenade that appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II

"Produces lethal radius damage upon detonation."
— In-game description.

Campaign

The Grenade is unlocked at the start of the campaign but can be switched if other lethal equipment is unlocked. Grenades can be replenished by an ammo crate or with the perk Ammo Pickup. In the 1980's section, the M67 Grenades are used, whereas in the 2025 section the new Frag Grenades are used. However, the HUD icon is the same for both grenade models, being that of the Frag Grenade.

Multiplayer

The Grenade is unlocked once the Create-A-Class is unlocked. Players with the perk Fast Hands are able to reset the fuse of the grenade and throw it back safely. Grenades can be replenished if the player has the perk Scavenger. It features larger explosive radius than the Semtex, but the Semtex can stick to walls and enemies, while the Grenade could roll past the point that the player decided to target. Despite this, both grenades can be rather useful in clearing out objectives, and could be swapped out with each other for specific game types and maps.

Zombies

The Grenade appears as the default grenade in Zombies. They work the same way as the M67 Grenade from Call of Duty: Black Ops.

In the map Origins, players can dig into special dig spots. Occasionally, the digs will release a bunch of grenades that can damage players and Zombies.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

"Cookable frag grenade."
— In-game description.

The Frag Grenade returns in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as the Frag. It was first seen in the "Induction" gameplay video for E3, where Mitchell switches through different modes as one of the available options. It is available in all game modes.

Campaign

The Frag appears in the campaign as a selectable grenade when using the Variable Grenade.

Multiplayer

Exo Survival

The Frag appears in Exo Survival as part of the Light, Heavy and Specialist Exo classes by default. It can also be bought from the Weapon Upgrade armory in the Exo Launchers section for one Upgrade Point, and is occasionally used by enemies.

Exo Zombies

The Frag appears in Exo Zombies. The player starts off with four, and earns one after each round, for a maximal limit of four. The Exo Zombies rendition of the grenade is much more powerful than the Zombies rendition, being able to one-hit kill zombies up to round 25; it is then very helpful to clear large groups of enemies. Past round 25, it tends to make crawlers. Something to note is that there is no way to refill grenades other than the Full Reload power-up and the grenade refilled each round; therefore, players that wish to keep grenades for later use should use a minimal amount of them, unless a Full Reload power-up spawns.
