Arc Grenade (Ex)

An arc grenade is a splash weapon with a range increment of 20 feet, generally thrown at a grid intersection rather than a creature. When armed and thrown, it detonates at the beginning of the machine slayer's next turn. The explosion deals 5d6 points of electricity damage to all targets within a 20-foot-radius spread (Reflex DC 15 half).

An arc grenade weighs 1 pound and is worth 750 gp.
