Some grenades have a massive area of effect, so you want to stay away from them when throwing them. The absence of gravity is also something that you need to keep in mind when using grenades in Starfield. Not every place in the game world is ideal for bombardment, so you need to rely on your guns and melee damage to dispatch enemies in zero gravity.

How to get more grenades in Starfield

During the early game, we had a hard time finding enough grenades but as you progress through Starfield’s world, you will find tons of storage containers with grenades. You can also get them from dead enemies or buy them from shops. The Centaurian Arsenal in New Atlantis stocks grenades, so do keep an eye out for vendors that can give you all the explosive goodies that you want.

We strongly recommend taking advantage of skills that allow you to loot and pickpocket in Starfield. You'll be able to sneak around and get all the grenades that you need. But like we mentioned earlier, gun stores are your best bet, and you should save up credits to keep your grenades stockpiled at all times.
