Those pitiful grenadiers can’t take the mindchemist archetype. They are stuck as relative morons.
Seriously: grenadier is a fun archetype and certainly a powerful one to play. The main downsides are that it blocks off a fair number of other archetypes and that you get less bombs (with the PFS rule of extra bombs replacing brew potion). Nobody’s going to complain about a player with a grenadier, but it isn’t a “must take” archetype.
Edit: Curse your ninja skills, Auke. We seriously both went for the same example?
