Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and expansions[]

There are 4 types of smoke grenades:

  • M18 smoke grenade, American-British smoke grenade, it creates a red smoke screen.
  • RDG-1 smoke grenade, Russian smoke grenade, it creates an orange smoke screen.
  • Nebelkerze 39, German smoke grenade, it creates a light green smoke screen.
  • Breda.35 smoke grenade, Italian smoke grenade, it creates a white smoke screen.

When used in Single Player, the Smoke Grenade will "hide" the player from the enemy, this can result in enemy troops running up to the player and not attacking as if they still can't properly detect the player, even in melee-range.

Medal of Honor: Frontline[]

Smoke grenades appear on the "Into the Breach" level. The player must first find them. At the end of the level, the Captain and Patterson destroy the machine gun bunkers by marking them with smoke grenades for Navy.

Medal of Honor: European Assault[]

During the "Climbing Mamayev Hill" level, Holt has to mark trigger an artillery strike marking the spot with a smoke grenade.

Medal of Honor: Airborne[]

Smoke grenades appear on all missions. They indicate a safe landing site or a landing site with a low concentration of the enemy.


  • M18 Smoke Grenade was only released in the 1950s, so its appearance in the game is not historically accurate.
  • Breda.35 is a hand grenade that did not have a smoke version.
