-Anonymous serviceman-in-training, after an exercise in grenade usage.
?? The Sonic Grenade is a type of explosive employed by UNSC forces. ?Unlike other grenades, it is intended for nonlethal purposes, such as the training of recruits and the acquisition of enemy personnel for interrogation.
Model: UNSC Sonic Grenade
Type: Stun grenade
Skill: Grenades: Sonic
Cost: 95 cR
Availability: 3, F
Range Difficulty: Easy/Moderate/Difficult
Damage: 6D/5D/4D/3D Stun
-Blast Radius: 0-2/4/6/8
-SONIC EFFECT: This weapon causes stun damage only. ?Armor and energy shields do not apply to resist it, but protection for the sense of hearing will work (some helmets are designed for this). ?A resistance roll is still needed, as the grenade also uses concussive force, as with any 'sonic boom'. Failed resistance rolls will leave people momentarily deaf, and possible loss of equilibrium (dizzy, hard to stand up); Dex checks may be needed.

?? Little is known about these grenades, other than that several of these were used by Colonel James Ackerson in testing the MJOLNIR Mark V armor on Reach, hidden amongst the Pillars of Loki and used in conjunction with Napalm Grenades.
-This grenade is similar to a Fragmentation Grenade in structure and detonation, except that it uses a miniature sonic boom rather than explosives. The grenade is not as effective as a Frag, but it is still effective and operative.
-The grenade is a non-lethal weapon used by Drill Instructors to teach Marines to keep their eyes peeled, hitting them with a loud sound that hurts their ears rather than actually causing them bodily harm. It would be one of the nicer booby traps used by DIs.
-They're probably similar to the Star Wars Sonic Detonators as they use high frequency sounds to incapacitate targets.
-These grenades cannot be used by the player for they are not seen or used in the Halo Trilogy.
-Their use as a non-lethal measure means they could be compared to presently used flashbang grenades.
