A zombie is approaching you, but all is well since you happen to have a live grenade in your hands. Is there at all a one-word term for the act of throwing that grenade at the zombie and successfully blowing it up? More generally, is there an explicit one-word term for actively blowing something up (not necessarily with a grenade), preferably one with some sort of corresponding noun?
Consider firearms... a good example, if in bad taste:
I will shoot you, zombie.
I shot the zombie.
I fired two shots at the zombie.
In my case:
I will ???? you, zombie.
(candidates: "explode" - sounds awkward; "will blow you up" -works, but I really need a one-word phrase for elegance)
I ???? the zombie.
I fired two grenades at the zombie.
I am designing a small game where I am already using one-word terms like "snipes", "kills", etc. It would be nice to have some one word expression for blowing things up that I can easily use with quantifiers. "Explosions" isn't a bad choice, but I feel like I can do better - it seems odd to say "I scored 4 more explosions than you did," and it also seems a bit ambiguous (could just as easily mean a place or object just as easily as personnel or zombies, whereas 'snipes' and 'kills' are not ambiguous).
Yes, the game does involve zombies.
