The Chaff Grenade is a cylindrical type of grenade that, upon exploding, releases thin pieces of electromagnetic particles. Chaff interferes with electronic devices, such as laser sensors and radar systems. With the small thin particles in the air, radars are no longer in use until the chaff has dissipated.
The Chaff Grenade has only appeared in Pandora Tomorrow (Single and Multiplayer modes) and Chaos Theory (Multiplayer mode only). It only affects electronic that emit optical, motion or laser sensors. So excluding lights, computers, radios, TVs, etc.
In the multiplayer of the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell games, Shadownet agents can use chaff grenades that interferes with electronic devices. This scrambles the vision modes for the mercenaries as well as other devices such as computer hacking and electronic traps. Chaff grenades are used by Shadownet agents 1 and 2, Fisher, and can be launched from a Shadownet's gun in the Multiplayer Verses mode in Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
- The Chaff Grenade works similar to the EMP Grenade, however, Chaff does not interfere with lights.
- Chaff Grenades have no effect automated turrets.
