For the enemy of the same name in Dead Island: Riptide, see Grenadier.

Grenadiers are enemies featured in Dead Island: Retro Revenge. They are human enemies who will throw the grenade at the player. They are likely military soldiers from before the outbreak.

Overview[]

Grenadiers throw 1 grenade at the player when entering the screen after which they will walk. Like other enemies, they appear down one of the three rows and do not switch lane.

Appearance[]

Grenadiers wear black army boots and green army pants. They also wear a black shirt underneath a strap containing 2 grenades diagonally around their torso. Grenadiers have black beards and wear a green army helmet.

Behaviour[]

Upon spotting Max, grenadiers throw a single grenade at Max which travels at a fast speed. When the grenade explodes, it will damage Max and nearby enemies. After this they will walk through their lane. If the player walks into a grenadier, the player takes 1 damage.

Strategy[]

  • The grenade is aimed at the player. Therefore action must be taken to either dodge the grenade by switching to another lane, or knocking it back.
  • The grenade can be knocked back, killing any enemy caught within the explosion.
    • Typically enemies behind a grenadier will be spaced out in a way that a grenade will be very effective at taking them out.
  • When the grenade explodes on a unit, the explosion reaches into the lane below and underneath the grenade as well, albeit in a smaller area than in its own lane.
  • Grenadiers take 2 hits to kill. All hit types are effective against the grenadier.
  • They will die in one hit to a projectile such as a barrel or Thug Head.

Notes[]

  • Grenadiers also take damage from backwards attacks. This can be used to acquire extra points if the player cannot appear in front of the grenadier in time.
  • They're similar to the Australian Defence Force.
