  • The grenadier kit as a mortar

    Basically its a simple formula: GL + Source of ammo = mortar

    This strategy works extremely well on 7 gates when taking the island fort flag. If you can get a source of ammo (RP, crate, APC, truck) it can be very effective at suppressing the defenders and with a few carefully placed smoke grenades, a lone grenadier can single handedly turn the battle.

    The GL has a substantial range and with good use of the minmap, one could cause some serious damage on enemy fortifications even if you are beyond their visual range. With a little practice, I've noticed you can accurately hit targets around 300 meters away and much farther than that if you have high ground and put enough elevation on the sight.

    So would you guys say this is a legit strategy? At worst it is nade spam although most people continue to run around with the grenadier kit as if it were an uber noob tube, I would like to think that this is a much more realistic approach to using them.

    I have done this on the british side, just a week ago. RP was 10 feet away, I was in an elevated position with my expert 203 skillllz.

    I got 22 kills alone with just the grenade launcher before i died.

    It's a valuable tool.

    ?I'm interested to see if this is considered "spam"

      Thats fine imo, you should aim to destroy the RP if you can though. Spot it, etc

      GL is not beyond the range of a sniper or marksman even so its upto them to respond. Smoke the target first I reckon and use the splash damage to wipe out anything moving


      If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

        If you want to be a real mortar you need a spotter.
        Then you can fire from a hidden position and won't be vulnerable to sniper fire.

          ^^ true but its dam hard to do without seing exactly how far off you were. I use cover, crouch then stand up and switch to binoculars

            My range accuracy is about 10% with the GL

            Any tips?

                As already mentioned, it's an excellent way of softening up an enemy position before an attack.

                  Well, I suck with the nade launchers and my only successes so far have all been hitting jeeps. I tried using one once in the tunnel on Ghost Train, I somehow managed to shoot the person next to me...

                  They're pretty good for room clearing though, like the flag room in tunnel.

                    I think I will try doing a specialty squad for this on Seven Gates or Sunset City.

                    Team of 4. SL, 2 grenadiers, and 1 support/rifle.

                    SL spots with SOFLAM. genadiers pound the target. support/rifle for protection.

                      Probably a good time to use HAT also I think:row__577:

                        Sounds like a pretty good idea.

                          Like anything else...practice. Load up a local map and get the GL kit. Set a marker on a target and get a feel for the range at distance, using the hash marks on the launcher. Then practice from elevations and precision (shooting into windows, doorways, etc.)

                            This is just nade spam isn't it? I sometimes do the same with regular grenades (sometimes smoke for defense), but I sort of feel bad about it because I'm not sure this is 'realistic' gameplay - IRL I bet they don't have soldiers lying next to a stack of grenades throwing them like a mortar.

                              It makes more sense to get dozens of grenades from a crate then half a dozen rockets.

                              You need to crouch, right click and aim. If you hurry it isnt consistent
