You need to be in CC for them to work.

Melta Bombs are excellent on a fast moving character as they are great for taking out a vehicle, but you have to be close. You slap them on a vehicle and they have great penetration and strength.

Frags are essential for any unit that might be seeing combat as they let you strike at the same time as people in cover. Not too uncommon.

Kraks are worthless, never get them.

Pretty simple really.

they go boom......

its in the codex.

meltabombs make tanks go boom really really well.
krak grenades are an annoyance to tanks and generally do nothing.
frag grenades are used assaulting someone in cover so you strike at he same time. thats it.

if you happen to collect space wolves get frags for your bloodclaws, and melta bombs for your grey hunters

Think this one is pretty much explained and done with. Can we get a mod or Admin to put a lock on this one already?
