The Variable Grenade is a grenade featured in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It was seen in E3 2014 gameplay, and is a grenade that has multiple effects, that can be switched to on the fly.
The Variable Grenade is introduced in "Atlas"; it is available in two forms:
- "Can cycle through Stun, EMP, Threat and Smoke. Cannot be manually detonated."
- — Menu description
In multiplayer, the Variable Grenade is shot from the Exo Launcher, and can only switch between tactical grenade effects (Stun, EMP, Threat, Smoke). It cannot be manually detonated like the other Tactical Grenades.
- Some of the Variable Grenades change their in-game model: tactical grenades use different stun grenade and threat shells (after detonation), lethal grenades use a M67 model for a very short time, if the player throws them as smart grenades - just before the nozzles start to work.
