A 'compliance weapon' to modify enemy behavior. Creates a thick smoke screen to block targets' line of sight.

— Armory Description

G-3 Smoke is a Special Grenade in Helldivers 2.

Rather than dealing damage, this grenade creates three small smoke clouds that last for 30 seconds each. The clouds often coalesce to form one block of smoke capable of obscuring a squad of Helldivers.

The primary tactical purpose of this grenade is to stop enemies from attacking you at range. It prevents Automatons from shooting at you, as their sensors cannot acquire your location. Of course, you can't see through the smoke, either, so it's primarily useful for covering a reverse advance, or forcing Automatons out of cover so that they can be more efficiently delivered Freedom.

Terminids are less affected by the G-3 Smoke, as once they've seen you, the smoke will not confuse them, and they'll make a bee-line straight at you. But it may be possible to use the grenade to prevent a passing patrol from spotting your squad in the first place.


To acquire the G-3 Smoke grenade, a Helldiver must unlock Page 8 of the Helldivers Mobilize Warbond, then spend 25 Medals to purchase the grenade.
