- "Produces a smoke screen upon impact. Allies within the smoke cannot be decteted on the enemy mini-map"
- — In-game description
Smoke Screen is a tactical grenade in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It creates a smoke screen that when allies are within the cloud, they are undetectable on UAV. It also jams enemy mini-maps if they are within the range of the smoke screen and allows you to hide from enemy scorestreaks like the Wraith and Cerberus.
Another positive effect of the smoke screen is that if an enemy Cerberus is caught within the smoke, it gets "paralyzed" on its spot. It offers no protection at all against H.A.T.R. scorestreaks.
