The Tesla Grenade is an energy weapon available in Wolfenstein: The New Order.


A hand grenade with a high explosive EMP charge for taking out multiple enemies and creating diversions. Its magnetically charged casing will stick to nearby mechanical enemies and temporarily disable them. Remember to stay out of the grenade's blast range. Its name refers to Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American inventor and electrical engineer best known for his contributions to the design of modern AC power systems.


The Tesla Grenade is a great gadget if the player is outnumbered or attacked by tough mechanical enemies like Supersoldaten, Guard Robot and Panzerhund. However, It is necessary to be in close or mid range. Otherwise, It won't hit it. The EMP grenade does have a plus side however, it can stick to the surface of most mechanical enemies, that means if you can get close enough, the grenade is guaranteed to do damage. The Tesla Grenade may be most effective against mechanized enemies because of its EMP blast, but its explosion is strong enough to kill basic grunts in one blow, so it's a nice weapon of choice when dealing with enemies taking cover.

Enemies also use the weapon as well, and if the player is hit by the blast, it will drain power from the LaserKraftWerk, AR Marksman, and the MG-60. This is particularly troublesome in the Moon Base One mission where Blazkowicz must rely on those weapons as his primary source of firepower.
