The Soldier tosses away his weapon, cracks his knuckles and says "C'mere, cupcake", takes a grenade off of his belt, sets it, thrusts his fist in the air and explodes, gibbing himself and any nearby enemies as well as destroying any nearby buildings.

If the Lumbricus Lid is equipped when this taunt is performed, the kill icon for this taunt changes to a Holy Hand Grenade, and this music is played.
