HIEX Grenade NT-RU735
Armadyne Infantry Support Munition
Grenades are one of the most ubiquitous support weapons on the modern battlefield. Though they require little skill to deploy effectively, a truly skilled user can toss one of these just where they want them – and where it will do the most damage.
The NT-RU735, or “Hottie” is a standard-weight munition, that is tailored towards anti-personnel damage, rather than simple high-explosive damage for general purposes. The HIEX Grenade is a low-energy detonation weapon, with an effective blast range of 4m.

A roughly palm-sized thermal grenade, the NT-RU735, popular among military personnel across Terramatrix. Although somewhat more expensive than other standard HE grenades, the HIEX uses a fairly stable binary compound that has a larger bast radius than traditional grenades.
