Gas Grenades

Gas Grenades is a rune effect in Grenades, a Hatred-generating Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect causes the grenades to explode as poison damage. Each grenade also leaves a small cloud of green gas that deals an additional 25% weapon damage per second for 3 seconds for targets who stand in the cloud that whole time. The damage is less for targets that only move through the cloud, but as it lingers numerous enemies can move through and take at least a second's worth of damage.
