How to Throw a Grenade or Explosive

Press and hold the melee button until you hear a sound and then release to deploy your explosive. Equip your explosive through your Pip-Boy as you would any weapon. It's icon will appear on the HUD above your ammo info.

How to use cover system

Fallout 4 features a leaning-while-aiming (semi-sticky) cover system. To enter cover mode, face the wall at the edge of it, then aim down the sights. The character leans out of cover. This also works for low covers; if you crouch while facing the cover. However, it only works when in First Person PoV. Have fun sniping enemies from behind a cover!
