This reminded me of something I didn't quite figure out...

Try this:

In the starting zone to level 1, stand a few feet away from
the back wall and fire a grenade up and out into space (away 
from the door). Note the result. 

Back up another few feet (so that you're now, say, under the
crossbeam). Do it again.

Explain the different results to me, and how they were accomplished.

(I think it's pretty slick, myself.)
