Default grenades

Do grenades use templets when used, say against a squad of troops, or other units? I thought it would make sense for fragmentation grenades, but I was unable to find the answer in the rule book. If it is in the rule book, could you possibly direct me to the page?

Thanks,
Cool

No, Grenades do not use the blast template. I suggest you re-read the rulebook, as it should contain the answer (at least, the proper 3rd Edition rulebook did).

Greandes cannot be used as ranged weapons. There is a weapon caled the grenade launcher, but this is different.

Yes Imperial Guard have Grenade Launchers. They are very cool weapons but not that useful.

Yes it would be cool to use grenades as a 1 shot item, I seem to remember using a Dice and Strength to determine how far they could go in older versions, but maybe thats me. But Grenades are now used to make opponents dive for cover while we storm the breach/barricade/slime chamber. And blowing up tanks. Whatever grenade, you need to be in CC to use them.

Demo Charges are insane. If you hit.

This topic has been deemed solved. Grenades are only used in close combat, they cannot be trhown, and there exists a weapon known as a grenade launcher.
