In game description: "A diversionary device that can be used to simulate weapons discharge".
The Decoy Grenade is a new grenade to the Counter-Strike series, being introduced into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. When thrown, the grenade produces weapon firing sounds equal to the most powerful weapon you are carrying at the time. It also produces a blip on the radar giving the illusion that a player is in the location it was thrown.
It is pretty effective in the game, one good use is throwing a smoke before the decoy so that it adds to the illusion that a player might actually be there.
