If the soldiers are hiding in a place that the grenade can't get behind them, you can simply throw it above or below that position. But its Left-click and Right-click attacks can be a bit difficult than the others, since it requires much more precise timing. It's recommended that you purchase the Mutation Spike to work with Assassin.
