- Zone Raider firing sonic grenades
Sonic grenades are a recent development of sonic technology weaponry used by GDI. It is a hand held weapon that generates a harmonic resonance wave, damaging anything within its blast, as well as useful in removing Tiberium. In addition, the grenade does not harm friendly units. While effective on lightly armored units, the grenade does less damage against heavier units. Also, since the grenades do not track units, agile units can simply evade them.
Used by ZOCOM, the grenade has been equipped on their Orca Gunships. Zone Raiders fire rocket-propelled variants from a specialized launcher. The MARV also uses sonic grenades, although these are much much stronger.
