**UPDATED WITH NEW REQUIREMENTS
---With the release of Operation Phantom Sight on 6/11/19, several achievement requirements have changed. To get this achievement, you now have to get 10 kills with frag grenades
You have to be on Attack to get this achievement. Since it is obvious what you have to do, this solution will focus on tips to make this achievement easier to get. First and foremost, there are only seven
attacking operators who have frag grenades. They are:
Now, if you are just starting the game, Sledge, Glaz, or Recruit are your obvious choices since they're the only frag grenade operators that come with the base game. However, if you've played the game for a while and have some/all DLC operators, Sledge and Maverick are both great for this achievement. Both are able to open up lines of sight that allow you to easily toss grenades into hard to reach areas. Operators like Finka, Iana, Glaz, and Nokk are more situational, but if you feel comfortable playing as them (or if both Sledge and Maverick are taken), then go for it. Toss frags into objective!
: By far the easiest way to get frag grenade kills is to toss them into areas of an objective where at least one person commonly anchors. You should be targeting Maestro, Echo, Valkyrie, and Mozzie, as those operators are most likely to be anchoring in the objective, often watching cameras (which means they'll be oblivious to a well-placed frag).Cook your grenades!
: Grenades take a long time to explode if thrown normally (by tapping
). If you want to increase the chances of scoring a kill, you need to cook your grenades by holding down
(I found that a three-count works well when ding this; 1, 2, 3, throw).Beware of anti-utility!
: There are several defenders whose job is to burn through an attacker's utility gadgets, or "anti utility" as they're called. They won't always be on a given enemy team, but they can be a nuisance when going for this achievement. They are as follows:
: Probably the most common troublesome defender you'll encounter in the game. He is a defender whose ability is a device that snipes grenades mid-air before they explode, including your frag grenades. If there is a Jäger on the enemy team, make sure to double check for his ADS devices before tossing a frag in the objective (they look like big black suction things with a glowing blue orb rotating around it; they're easy to spot).
: Similar to Jäger, but a bit less direct in approach. He is a defender whose ability is little discs that "grab" incoming grenades and redirect them to another location (meaning the grenade will still explode, just not in the place you wanted it to). These can be put in more spots than a Jäger ADS, so they can be difficult to spot. If you're sure that there's a Wamai gadget in a particular room, have a teammate throw a flashbang/smoke to "burn" the Wamai disc before throwing your frags in. Alternatively, killing him early on will help with this achievement. Similar to Lesion, his gadget recharges throughout the round, so killing him early on reduces the amount of gadgets he brings to the field; he gets 6 total, 2 during the prep phase, and 4 during the round. (NOTE: when a grenade is "grabbed", the ownership of the grenade transfers to Wamai. So if a grenade is grabbed and ends up killing an enemy, you will not
be credited with the kill.)
: Not as annoying as the other two, but can be annoying to new players. She is a defender whose ability is a laser gate that can be put on walls and doors, that damages enemies. However, in addition to damaging enemies, it also has the ability to intercept one projectile, including frag grenades, before powering down for 30 seconds (at which point a defender will manually have to shoot a panel to activate it again). Any projectile works on these, including drones, so dealing with these shouldn't be hard; have a teammate use a flashbang/smoke, or sacrificing your drone, should do the trick.
And that's it for the tips. Overall not a hard achievement, but can definitely cause some trouble if you don't know what you're doing. You should just get this through normal play. Happy hunting!
