The Entity Database or DB as it can be referred to, is a .xml file that holds all the information for the "entities" in game. These Entities are things like; soldier units, vehicles, weapons, ammo, props, checkpoints, torches, fire rates, recoil, scopes, height of weapons on the units etc etc.
Once you begin to edit small things you then get an understanding of how you can edit other things too. But first you MUST MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR OLD ONE!
 
 Parameters Explained
Here is a description of each parameter in the entity database (part 1) --
 
Torch
bone the bone on the weapon that the light will be cast from
brightness how bright (0 = no light, 1 = max brightness)
color RGB color values for the deffered light
isflashlight used to split functions on the controller. false makes it count as a laser
length distance in meters that the light projects
spread angle at which the light comes out
threshold used to force a light to always on (-1)
type the texture used for the light appearance
Missile Firing mode
angularDamping used for speed reduction when richochet
armingDistance how far the missile must travel before becoming active
backBlastRadius semi-circle area behind the firing unit in which damage will be dealt (when firing)
blastRadius semi-circle area infront of the firing unit in which damage will be dealt (when firing)
fireModeType type of firing this weapon does (0 Auto, 1 Semi, 2 Burst)
firingPoint bone at which gunflash/missile is created
flightVelocity how fast the missile travels
fragRadius size of damage (dont think this is used anymore, as the ammo contains this)
linearDamping used to bring physics objects to a standstill (not really used by an explode-on-contact weapon)
magType01 magazine or ammo type this weapon takes
maxRange Distance in meters in which the fired ammo will be despawned
maxTargetAngle Maximum degrees the missile can turn per frame
maxTargetheat Maximum heat level a target can have to be locked
minRange Minimum range that a target can be locked
minTargetHeat Minimum heat level a target can have to be locked
munition Parent ammunition type
osdType name of the OSD settings in the primary OSD xml
releaseVelocity distance per second the missile travels when leaving the weapon
targetRange maximum range a target can be locked
topAttackHeight maximum height the missile can go
trackingType "ai" used to control missile behavior (ROCKET - dumbfire, TOPATTACK - go up, then down on target, DIRECTATTACK - head straight for target, BEAMRIDER - attempt to reach point player is aiming at)
warmUpDistance Unsure, I think this is the distance in meters before VFX are added to back of missile
 
 
Ballistic firing Mode
Grenades
angularDamping used for speed reduction when richochet
angularPrimary Modifier for first collision
angularSecond Modifier for second collision
animationSet Parent animation set used for firing this weapon
canAim Can the weapon be aimed (ironsights)
chamberDelay time in milleseconds it takes for the weapon to chamber another round (semi mode only)
fireModeType type of firing this weapon does (0 Auto, 1 Semi, 2 Burst)
firingPoint bone at which gunflash/bullet is created
FMPriority which firing mode the weapon will default to when picked up (if it has more than one)
linearDamping used to bring physics objects to a standstill (not really used by an explode-on-contact weapon)
magtype01 magazine or ammo type this weapon takes
maxBursts Number of shots in a burst
munition Parent ammunition type
osdType name of the OSD settings in the primary OSD xml
releasePrimary Unsure - definately used for release velocity. I think this is the maximum velocity
releaseSecond Unsure - This seems to be the minimum velocity
rpm maximum rounds per minute fired (AUTO and BURST)
smokeTrail whether the ammo leaves a smoke trail
timerMax Unsure - I think the original intention was to have grenades not explode on impact, and this controls the fuse.

Hello, I just have read a bit of it and when looking on a grenades parameters I saw : "releasePrimary" and "releaseSecond". I'm not 100% sure but I guess it referres to 2 throwing options you can choose to use grenades: 
1) Throwing over head which is, let's say default mode and most commonly observed throw. It let's off grenade to distance up to 45/50 meters.
2) Throwing with undergrip which looks more like youre rolling grenade and thus it travels smaller distance (i guess something up to 20 meters).
Just humble idea since I've never done anything to DataBase.

Cheers

JurekCello78, sounds like a logical guess to me.
