This article is for the grenadier elites of the Swarm. For the Locust Elite Grenadiers, see Grenadier Elites.

The Elite Grenadier is the most experienced and battle hardened of the Grenadiers. They have little patience and only have one goal: to turn their enemies into thousands of chunks.

They are equipped with overkill shotguns and flash bang grenades. They wear helmets that you have to shoot off to do headshot damage and a thick armored overcoat for protection.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Elite Grenadiers function essentially the same as standard Grenadier. However, they possess much tougher armor which makes them hard to take down. Moreover, they were thick helmets which allows them to survive one shot from a Longshot Sniper Rifle.[2]

These Grenadiers also get an upgrade to their weapons; carrying an Overkill Shotgun which makes them lethal at close range. Moreover, they supplement their Bolo Grenades with Flashbangs. While these grenades are nonlethal, when combined with their stun affect and the overkill, the Elite Grenadiers are a force to be reckoned with.[3]

As such, one must dispatch them from afar as quickly as possible before they get too close, or use JACK to either stun or attack them.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

  • The Elite Grenadier is a playable multiplayer character for the Swarm in Gears 5.
