Borderlands 3 Grenade Mods Guide

Grenades are one of the weapon types that are at your disposal in Borderlands 3. These explosive devices can be thrown in various ways and can have multiple attributes that affect how they work.

There is a limited number of grenades that you can carry. This number can be expanded by purchasing Storage Deck Upgrades at Marcus Munitions aboard Sanctuary 3.

Grenade Rarities + Modules

Grenade Mods can come in various rarities, the rarer a mod is the more modules it can roll with. Each module impacts the name of the grenade mod adding different prefixes.
