The Stick Grenade is a One Handed Blunt melee weapon in Phantom Forces. It is unlocked by rolling a LEGENDARY while opening a case.
The Stick Grenade (German: Stielhandgranate or "stalk hand grenade") is a German hand grenade. It was the standard issue grenade of the German Empire during World War I and became the infamous hand grenade of Nazi Germany's Wehrmacht during World War II. The stielhandgranate had a distinctive appearance which led to it being nicknamed the “stick grenade” or “potato masher” and is now one of the most easily recognized infantry weapons of the 20th century. 
The model in Phantom Forces is based off of the Stielhandgranate, specifically the 1924 model.
The Stick Grenade is an average melee, not outstanding or terrible. Like all melees, it can be used in quick defensive maneuvers and offensive maneuvers in situations such as running out of ammunition.
Usage and Tactics
The Stick Grenade does not one-shot headshot, along with having with a low blade range. However, the attack times compensate for this. Oftentimes, the user may be killed through other melee weapons, and will not instantly defeat enemies. Using this melee aggressively is usually not the best option because of the low damage, but if the user can make it through enemy gunfire, two quick hits in sucession will be enough to take down the target.
If the user does not emphasize melee too much in their gameplay, the Stick Grenade is not very different from other melee weapons, however, if the user needs a backup weapon that can quickly deal damage repeatedly, the Stick Grenade is suitable. Due to the walkspeed of 16, this weapon is good for getting places quickly or if under fire. As such the Stick Grenade can be seen as a melee with balanced speed with damage, much like the Machete does.
Pros & Cons
- Highest walkspeed in game.
- Low range.
- Low front damage.
- The act of using the stick grenade as a melee weapon could be a reference to the Ullapool Caber, one of Team Fortress 2's melee weapons. Striking the Caber against any surface would cause it to detonate, after which it would only deal a very weak amount of melee damage.
- Even though it is defused, you should not do this in real life. The explosive is unstable and could cause explosion without fuse.
