This article is about the POSTAL 2 incarnation. For other versions, see: GrenadesGrenades (Postal III)Grenades (POSTAL 4)

Grenades are a weapon in POSTAL 2.


The manual description:

The Grenade can be used to create small explosions. The longer you hold down the fire key before releasing it, the further the Grenade will be thrown. This weapon also has a secondary fire option, allowing you to place them down safely without triggering the fuse. Then, you may fire at them with the pistol or other weapons from a safe distance to detonate them. Walk back over them to simply pick them back up. For other people around you though, the unarmed grenade will act like an anti-personnel mine and detonate on contact. This is great for setting up traps! Not that this is recommended or encouraged, but hey, they call it “free will” for a reason.

Grenades appear in POSTAL 2 and its expansions. If used effectively, they can provide great amounts of damage. They are generally quite hard to use, as time, angle and pitch comes into account, however if a grenade hits someone it will instantly explode. The secondary fire mode for grenades makes the Postal Dude pull set one down, thus detonating when stood on by another person like a mine. Grenades thrown by an enemy can be kicked back to the one throwing them, if it's done quickly and with accuracy.

Grenades are quite rare, but are mostly found in the hands of Terrorists or in secret areas. The Postal Dude will also always pull out a grenade and put it in his mouth when committing suicide. When playing on Enhanced Mode, a yellow grenade will be used which makes a gigantic explosion similar to that of the Mini-Nuke Launcher.


  • The grenades are based on the M26 HE grenade.
