  • Able to reveal an invisible light zombie

Smoke grenade usefulness depends on situation.


  • When facing a sniper, use smoke grenade to distract them. This will obscure their line of sight, which can be used to either cross the path or flanking.
  • A smoke grenade in tight corridors may force enemies to blindly spray in it. As they stop firing, strike them as they may be reloading.
  • Players in the smoke will receive less flashbang effect.


  • Throw a HE Grenade within the cloud, if an enemy is hiding in it, this will damage or kill them.
  • Retreat and camp somewhere safe and away from the smoke.
  • If a smoke cloud is formed in a tight area, camp somewhere and wait until the smoke disappears.
  • Carefully scan enemies either by spraying or moving crosshair to see if there's anyone hiding in it. This is very useful in Basic mode since a hit marker is displayed when hitting a target.

Zombie Darkness & Zombie Z[]

  • In Zombie 4: Darkness, the smoke grenade's smoke can damage the zombies. The users are also able to hold 2 smoke grenades at once.
  • In Zombie Z, after a human gained Vaccine Grenade ability, they can throw a Smoke Grenade that deals high damage to zombies in the smoke area. The smoke also provides a knockback function to the zombies, which the degree of the knockback depends on the weapon that the player is using. The higher the knockback power (in %) of the weapon, the higher the degree of knockback to the zombies.
