OriginEdit

The Battle of Hamburger Hill during the Vietnam War was odd because it was fought mainly with infantry and artillery instead of aerial support. Although heavily fortified Hill 937 had little strategic value, the US command decided to launch an assault. Troops had a very difficult time fighting due to the steep slope, dense grasses and unfavorable weather. Soldiers nicknamed it “Hamburger Hill” because participants were “chewed up like a hamburger". Although American forces managed to capture the hill, the high and needless losses forced the American military to start rolling back its support due to now popular negative opinion on the war.

EffectsEdit

When the pin is released, the grenade will drastically alter the landscape. Steep, rolling hills shrouded by waist high underbrush will suddenly sprout from the ground. They will also periodically change inclination, height and direction without warning. If thrown, the affects will become even more extreme and debilitating. However, the handler will suffer from a bevy of what appears to be shrapnel injuries, having their muscles shredded without any material being present.
