All grenades are almost guaranteed kill within a meter of a the target. However at 5 meters we did not have a single kill (in over 20 grenade throws per grenade type).
After the v0.4.1.706 patch damage is still very disappointing. There appears to be more even explosive damage within the damage zone, but fragments hitting targets even at 7 meters is very unlikely still. In the current state the grenades are as if they had no fragments at all because there are still too few fragments spawning or something else is off. In real life the F1 grenade is advertised as very dangerous and it should not be used without cover, but in the game 10 meters appears to be a perfectly safe distance.
