Impulse Grenade

Category Battle Royale Items
Introduced Patch 2.5
Last Adjustment Patch 11.40
Vaulted 9.30 Content Update #1

Impulse Grenade was a Rare Utility Item in Battle Royale. It can be thrown to launch players and vehicles away from the point of impact and does not grant fall damage immunity to players. Impulse Grenades drop in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack size of 9, and can be found in Chests, Supply Drops, Supply Llamas and floor loot.

The Impulse Grenade was then added to the Vault on Patch 6.00, It was then unvaulted on Patch 8.11. However it was Re-vaulted on 9.30 Content Update #1 making it exclusively available in Creative. It was vaulted the first time due to reduce mobility. The second time it was vaulted was due to the Shockwave Grenade being unvaulted. The Impulse Grenade has been added to Battle Lab on Patch 11.40

The Impulse Grenade was unvaulted during the Spy Games event in Chapter 2 Season 2.

The Impulse Grenade, along with the Shockwave Grenade, has received new sounds in Chapter 2 Season 3.
