The Mk 2 grenade (referred to as the M2 Fragmentation Grenade in Call of Duty) was a fragmentation hand grenade commonly used by the American soldiers during World War II. It appears throughout all the World War II-themed Call of Duty games, the DS version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, and in the DS spinoff of Modern Warfare 3, Defiance as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Call of Duty and United OffensiveEdit

"Fragmentation grenades are very effective anti-personnel devices. The high explosive charges reduce their metal casing to flying fragments, causing considerable blast damage. Though they're ineffective against armoured vehicles, they are extremely useful for clearing out entrenched infantry positions."

CampaignEdit

The M2 fragmentation grenade, AKA "frag", is the American grenade of choice. It has fairly good throwing range and blast radius, but its ammo is very limited, and replaced by the Stielhandgranate.

MultiplayerEdit

The Mk 2 Grenade is issued to the Americans. In Call of Duty and its expansion pack Call of Duty: United Offensive, all grenades are statistically similar. They have a damage range of 250-10 in single-player, and 120-5 in multiplayer, with a fuse of five seconds. They also have a melee attack that deals 50 damage, with an animation similar to a pistol whip. The maximum number of grenades one can hold is 10, although in practice this only occurs in single-player. In multiplayer, grenade distribution is determined by the weapon the player spawns with. Those equipped with a Springfield receive one grenade; those with the Thompson or BAR receive two; and those with the M1 Carbine or M1 Garand receive three. Importantly, in Call of Duty, players cannot be shellshocked by grenades.

In Call of Duty: United Offensive, the damage and the maximum number of grenades stays constant, but a few changes are enacted. Players can be shellshocked by grenades. Grenades also have the ability to be cooked, where the grenade is armed but kept in the player's hand so that the fuse is shortened when thrown. Grenade distribution is totally changed as well; instead of being determined by the weapon equipped, it is determined by rank. Privates spawn with one grenade, Riflemen with two, and Platoon Sergeants with three.

Call of Duty: Finest HourEdit

This grenade is used by British and American soldiers. However, it has a smaller blast radius and less damage when compared to the Steilhandgranate.

CampaignEdit

This weapon is the American grenade of choice. It is uncommon, and is exactly the same as the other grenades. It cannot be cooked just like the other grenades in the game, but can be held in hand (fuse doesn't change).

MultiplayerEdit

This weapon is issued to the American team. It is exactly the same as the other grenades. In Call of Duty 2, one Mk 2 Grenade is issued to those equipped with the Grease Gun, M1897 Trenchgun, or Thompson, two for those with the BAR, M1 Carbine, or M1 Garand, and three for those with the Springfield.

"Hand grenade often referred to as a "pineapple" because of its cross-hatched exterior. Pulling the pin and releasing the spoon allows some time to "cook" the grenade before it explodes."
— In-game description

The Mark II A1 "Pineapple" returns in Call of Duty 3. It is the standard grenade used in the American campaign, and is used by the Allied team in multiplayer. There is an on-screen counter which notifies the player as to when the grenade will explode. In multiplayer, it performs identically to the Steilhandgranate.

CampaignEdit

In Call of Duty: World at War, during the campaign, the Mk 2 is the standard fragmentation grenade for the United States Marine Corps. The player will always have four at the start of an American mission, but they almost never are found in the actual level to be picked up.

MultiplayerEdit

The Mk 2 also returns as the standard fragmentation grenade used by players in multiplayer, much like the M67 in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Compared with its Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare counterpart, the fragmentation grenade has taken a major hit in terms of usefulness, mostly because of the faster damage dropoff (the further a target is from the grenade, the less damage the target will take). This also affects grenades dropped by Martyrdom, which makes it much easier to avoid one when it is dropped by a dead enemy.

There is a perk called Toss Back that allows these grenades to be picked up and have their fuse reset so they can be effectively thrown back.

Nazi ZombiesEdit

It makes a minor appearance in Nazi Zombies mode, in Shi No Numa. It can be used while downed if a player grabs Max Ammo, rather than using the Stielhandgranates.

Call of Duty: World at War (Nintendo DS)Edit

The Mk 2 Grenade appears in Call of Duty: World at War (Nintendo DS) as one of the two grenades available in game, the other being the German Stielhandgranate. Though meant for use by Americans, the Mk 2 is used by the Red Army and the Imperial Army as well. It also differs slightly in appearance compared to the console versions, sporting a gray color scheme as opposed to a green one.

CampaignEdit

In the campaign, the Mk 2 is a starting grenade for the USMC, the SAS, and the Red Army. The player always starts with five grenades, the maximum, but can resupply from grenades found on the bodies of enemies or from ammunition crates. As mentioned before, the Mk 2 is also used by members of the Imperial Army and the Red Army.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the Mk 2 is used by all factions with the exception of the Germans, which use the Model 24 Stielhandgranate. Unlike multiplayer on the consoles, all players are equipped with five Mk 2s (or Stielhandgranates for the Germans) when they spawn. Though grenades cannot be resupplied from the bodies of enemies or from ammunition crates, the five provided grenades encourages grenade spamming.

Used by

All Allied Divisions

The Mk 2 Grenade is used by all allied divisions depending on what kind of grenade is picked up. It shared the appearance of its Call of Duty: World at War counterpart. It can be cooked for six seconds before exploding and killing the player. Sometimes even cooking and then throwing after four seconds can still kill the player. It is advised to cook the grenade when clearing out a fortification as the enemy can attempt to throw back the grenade. On some levels, cooking grenades is best used as an unexpected enemy attack that happen at random times, which renders primary and secondary weapons a poor defense, requiring for the player to use explosive weapons.

Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

The Mk 2 grenade is unusable in Call of Duty: Black Ops, however, they are visible in Tank Dempsey's model, as well as on his Matryoshka Doll.

Used by

All Teams

The Fragmentation Grenade appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS), in use by all teams. It is used like a separate weapon, so the player must take it out and manually throw it. 

ZombiesEdit

Fragmentation Grenades appear as the main grenade in the Zombies mode. It is also purchasable from the walls. It is not very effective, because as was stated before, it has to be taken out manually.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: DefianceEdit

The Grenade is featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance and retains the same stats of the Mk. 2 from Call of Duty: Black Ops (DS), only it now has a metallic color.

CampaignEdit

In the campaign, the Mk. 2 Fragmentation Grenade is the only grenade available to use and can only be resupplied at ammunition crates and dropped by some enemies. The player can have up to five grenades maximum.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the Mk. 2 is one of the starting weapons and automatically unlocked, along with its counterpart, the Flashbang Grenades. The grenade has the same statistics as single-player.

GalleryEdit

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

The Mk 2 was briefly seen in Call of Duty: Ghosts in the introduction cutscene for the Extinction map Awakening. One of the soldiers with David Archer pulls it out but drops it after a Gargoyle attacks him. Archer uses another soldier as a shield, to which the blast from the grenade kills him.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIEdit

The MK2 grenades can be seen on the original timeline "Tank" Dempsey while he is in the cryo pod in Der Eisendrache.
