Needle Grenade (EU2012)
A variant on the Frag Grenade, this weapon does equivalent damage over a much larger area but the projectiles cannot damage cover. Thus units in cover related to the center of the blast area will be unaffected.

- The blast will not destroy cover or terrain.
- So, feel free to fling these around inside a UFO without worry of destroying precious Power Sources or Nav Computers.
- The blast radius is about 2 to 2.5 times the size of a normal grenade, and about the same size or slightly larger than a Danger Zone rocket.
- Think carefully about producing these. Chryssalid corpses are fairly rare and difficult to acquire, and also necessary for Chitin Plating.
