Default Grenades and Spotters

Does the Spotter on a sniper drone team get grenades? They're on the model, right above his left buttcheek. It doesn't say so in the Codex, But I'm just wondering........

No. If it isn't in the profile, they don't have it. WYSIWYG never works in reverse. Just think of it as a canteen or something.

On the spotter they may as well be a packed lunch.
They look like grenades, but as was previously said, the profile does not list grenades, so they have no actual effect.

As those things are never described anywhere as being grenades, and you can put a hand with a grenade on your firewarriors (that looks totally different), I don't see why some think those things are actually grenades. And the inclusion on the Spotter should be another clue to that they aren't. It's just some standard equipment. Could be magazine-containers for all we know.

I don't actually HAVE a sniper drone spotter, but I'm betting it's the same thing modeled on metal pathfinders. And if that's true then I don't understand how you can possibly think they're anything BUT grenades.

They are grenades, plural. Look closely at the belt grenades, and the hand held grenade, and the shape of the grenade launcher barrel. The grenades on the belt are actually clips of grenades; they are little tubes with 5 or 6 grenades stacked up. They are little disk shaped things, like the hockey puck style flashbangs in use today.
