A hand grenade is a small, light-weight, timed explosive device. Grenades can inflict severe damage against infantry and other soft targets. Most hand grenades used are fragmentation grenades, often abbreviated to "frags", which litter an area with shrapnel, inflicting severe damage on infantry and lightly armored targets.

The Frag Grenade is an explosive grenade featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. When activated, the Attacker has a 4 second time period to throw the grenade. If not thrown after 3.5 seconds from activating it, the grenade will explode in their hand, killing them and damaging nearby players. Cooking can be canceled by switching to a weapon.

Frag Grenades are very useful for room clearing, where they can drive out the Defenders from their defenses or kill them where they sit. Frag Grenades do 142, 120 and 105 points of damage against the respective armor types, killing many operators instantly when in close proximity. Rook's. Frag Grenades kill indiscriminately, meaning that friendly fire is an issue. A single bad rebound can severely injure or kill other Attackers or the Hostage.

Another use is for breaching walls and hatches, as the explosion can tear through destructible objects much like its alternative. The explosion will cause several smaller holes instead of one big one for most walls. For weak, single-layer walls, a hole slightly smaller than one from a Impact Grenade is made if exploded up close. Frag Grenades breach hatches effectively.

Any Operator close to a thrown grenade can pick it back up and even throw it back again. As the grenade can be thrown back, it is a good idea to "cook" the grenade, by holding the grenade button for a time before releasing. However, cooking a frag grenade for too long will cause it to explode in your hand. The reticle flashes while cooking the grenade to help with timing. One second after pulling the safety, the reticle will flash for four times every third of a second, then turn to quicker flashes one per every sixth of a second. To make a frag grenade explode almost immediately on contact, cook it for five flashes; to breach a wall like an impact grenade, cook for seven flashes.

Like other throwable gadgets, getting hit directly by the Frag Grenade deals 5 points of damage.
