In recent gameplay we get a good look on how the pulse grenade works. Instead of the giant kill ball like orb that explode, drains then implode. It now explode leaving micro mini orbs behind, each mini orb explode dealing damage apon contact. A well place grenade will kill without needing to finish off the enemy unlike halo 4 version which requires shots before or after damaging an opponent with the grenade. I can't remember exactly but I believe it did bounce like a frag so the benefits the halo 4 version had of instant explosion is no more.
Ahem....... -Yoink- YEA.... That is all
I believe it's now called the Splinter Grenade.

Really? Why'd they change the name? Makes me think of the spike grenade. Why hasn't the sentinal beam or a weapon similar return?

Yes, it looks really well done, and I love the potential for gameplay.
The video by 17k Group that shows off the customization is my source. I'm on mobile so I'm having issues with pasting the link. Pause it while he is looking through game settings and gets to starting weapon setup at the very start of the vid. It shows the grenades as Frag, Plasma, and Splinter Grenades.

Because its no longer a pulse. It's more like walking into a bunch of splinters.

It probably has something to do with the fact that it's clearly not the same grenade.

because the nade doesn't pulse anymore and instead produces splinters.
Yes. This nade is FAAAAARRRRR better than the Halo 4 nade.
Halo 4 Pulse Grenade was too bad...now it seems to be a dead machine! I like it :D #Halo5SplinterNade

I don't know yet. In Halo 4, it was pointless. We'll see when we try Halo 5.
AS the person who has had the number one pulse grenade kills in the world, Yes I do like the new ones.

how many pulse grenade kills did you have to get? 10?
It was pretty useless in Halo 4, so yeah, any change is a good change at this point.
