The LXR-6 concussion grenade was a physical concussion grenade produced by SoroSuub Corporation[1] that were used on a few battlefronts during the Clone Wars by Galactic Republic clone troopers. Rebel Alliance soldiers and Imperial stormtroopers alike later used them during the Galactic Civil War,[2] although not as much as thermal detonators. These concussion grenades had powerful magnetics and were utilized against armored vehicles during the war such as AT-STs. The grenade would stick to the armor of the vehicle and detonate with a powerful blast designed to rip a hole through the vehicle's hull. While effective against armored vehicles, the grenades had a short blast radius and caused only minimum damage against infantry units.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

LXR-6 concussion grenades appear in the 2004 video game Star Wars: Battlefront, although they are identified as such in the game's strategy guide.
