HisWattson throws the most dramatic frag grenade in Apex Legends
Sometimes, it's all about timing.
Grenades are powerful tools in Apex Legends, and that’s why many of them have telegraphed timings before they explode. Thermites ignite instantly upon hitting the ground, while arc stars are on a timer after they land on a surface or enemy player.
Frag grenades deal the most damage out of every grenade, and they also have the longest timer before they explode. That’s why you’ll often see players throw them high in the air, in effect “cooking” the grenade to explode almost instantly when they land on an opponent’s head rather than give the enemy a chance to escape the blast radius.
