Mechanical Arsenal - Definitive Edition

Successor to Pyrolusite's Grenade Skills, this mod currently adds 30 skills to the game, still distributed between Huntsman - offensive physical/elemental grenades - and Scoundrel - utility and crowd control grenades, wind-up toy elemental and smoke variants.

Feedback is appreciated, as always.

Major differences with PGS

- Base cooldown reduced to 4 turns (from 6)
- Base damage multiplier reduced to 115% (from 130%)
- Smoke Screen invisibility reduced to 1 turn (from 2)
- A Cluster Grenade skill for each element
- Love, Terror and Holy grenade skills !
- Removed "T2 Poison Grenade" and Source skills. New source skills will be implemented later.
- Introducing "Throw Explosive Trap" variants using Ice, Poison and Air elements. Unchanged scaling.
- Introducing "Deploy Mass Traps" variants using Ice, Poison and Air elements. Unchanged scaling.
- Introducing "Wind-Up Toy" variants using Smoke, Ice, Poison and Air. Unchanged scaling.
- New icons !

What to expect

Damage multipliers are still being tested. They might be slightly buffed or nerfed depending on how they will perform, given than they were originally balanced to be burst skills with high cooldowns.

Offensive non-cluster grenades : 2 AP, 4 CD.
Utility/CC grenades : 2 AP, 3 CD.
Cluster grenades : 3 AP, 5 CD.
Smoke Screen : 2 AP, 6 CD.
Trap and Wind-Up variants : Same than their vanilla counterparts.

Compared to my previous mod, my main goal here is to provide more skills for players wanting to specialize in one element when playing a rogue/hunter-hybrid class, instead of encouraging a multi-element build that will basically burst harder than regular mages.

Getting started

Obtaining these skillbooks is done by crafting, but can also be found in the skillbook lootpool.
There are 3 recipe books in Fort Joy and the Lady Vengeance, allowing you to unlock them in your recipe list. They can also be found in some lootpools, apparently.


The following skills are available at character creation :
  • Novice Makeshift Grenade
  • Makeshift Nailbomb
  • Blinding Flash
  • Smoke Screen

Recommanded mods


Absolutely incompatible with Pyrolusite's Grenade Skills.
Might be incompatible with any grenade skills mods.

@SgtHavick I don't think any mod-breaking update happened on DOS2, so it should be fine.

Does this mod still work? It looks really fun

@Quiiliitiila Nope, since they are skills and not items, ambidextrous doesn't work with them.
Quiiliitiila Sep 24, 2020 @ 5:33pm 
Do these grenade skills benefit from the ambidextrous talent?

@joebob Afaik they won't, they are not dependant on the crafted grenades damage formula, they have their own.

Do you know if these skills will scale based on the buff to grenades Odin introduced with his Huntsman rework?
Pyrolusite  [author] Oct 6, 2019 @ 11:45am 
No problem, thanks for telling me about it though, I wasn't aware OPCO nerfed the vanilla explosive trap.
