The Stielhandgranate is a grenade in the Day of Defeat series. It is only used by the German team. The text on the grenade, in English, reads "Before use insert detonator."

The Stielhandgranate is usable only by the Assault and Support classes. The Assault class can carry one, and the Support class can carry two. The text on the grenade remains the same.

The German Stielhandgranate takes 5 seconds to detonate upon releasing the pin. It is possible to "cook" the grenade in your hands and letting go at a later time so that the enemy has lesser time to react and throw back. The grenade deals a maximum of 138 damage, making it stronger than the rocket and has a rather wide kill radius.

It is possible to pick up enemy grenades and throw them back by pressing E (use button).

If a player picks up an enemy grenade but is out of time and the grenade explodes before they can release it, the player who picked up the grenade is marked as committing suicide, and the enemy player who initially threw the grenade does not get a kill. If friendly fire is on, the person who picks up the grenade late can potentially kill other teamates, causing them to not only commit suicide, but also team kill. However if friendly fire is off, the person who picks up the grenade late can potentially save teamate's lives as the grenade blast will only kill the one who picked it up and not harm everyone in the room.

The American MK 2 grenade has the exact same in-game characteristics.
