Tanglefoot grenade

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Tanglefoot grenades are a complex offensive grenade mechanism created by the Adeptus Mechanicus and only typically used by elite Imperial forces. Basically a small magno-gravitic reactor set to overload, they create very small, but relatively powerful gravimetric fields. The outcome of all this is that anything caught inside the tanglefoot field experiences localised higher gravity, with all the associated implications for movement, bodily operation and so on.[1] Gravimetric fields can also create limited spatial warping and time distortions.[2]
