Weapons are good but when it comes to tactical planning, you can’t ignore the significance of grenades in Borderlands 2. Just like the different types of weapons, there are plenty of grenades variants to try in the game.
If you don’t find the function different, there are other things like the way of explosion and its delivery system etc that will differentiate the closely related types.
Apart from the normal grenade variants, there are unique and legendary grenades with some fascinating functions. Who wants a grenade that will explode into baby grenades? It’s all in the guide below.
