The Long Bomb Penance/Achievement gives you a torso cosmetic for the Veteran and is necessary for the helmet cosmetic later on. This is a guide on how to throw grenades as Veteran so that you don’t need to yeet it across the map.
I found that most guides on this achievement point out specific parts of missions to do it on, but I was lazy so I figured out a more practical solution by quick throwing the grenade.
With your grenades, stand about 20 meters away from a horde of weak enemies. Look up about 40 degrees or so (better to overthrow than underthrow) and just quickly left click without holding it.
This quick throw won’t go as far, and if done right, should explode a bit above head level.
Once you can do the throw comfortably, join a mission on the easiest difficulty (sedition).
Whenever you find a sizable horde, just let your teammates engage them while you stand back and do the throw. With a bit of luck and good practice, it shouldn’t take too long.
Sometimes missions will have the condition “endless horde” which might make it easier to get the achievement.
