  • 40mm grenade the new PK rocket...

    This is after 3h on the TG server.

    Well looks like this is going to be the spam of this game any comments???

    It seems to have almost no kill radius so I've seen a lot of people blow me away from nearly point blank range with no consequences.

      If you don't hit like within a half metre of your target, he will not die if he's at full health.
      He was told that he should not kill, and he did not kill, until he got into the Army. Then he was told to kill, and he killed.

        I would like to see them travel a certain distance without arming.

          Such an obvious, simple fix that would make the GL what it is supposed to be: a long range tool for hitting walls people are behind or destroying stationary weapons emplacements. So tired of getting noob tubed.

            Absolutely. I can grit my teeth and tolerate the glut of snipers who will (hopefully) find their way back to MW2 soon enough, but the M2 CG and 40 mike mike could definitely use some tuning.

              You think it's bad now, wait until everyone has the extra grenades unlock.

              I'm ok with it myself. This is Battlefield, and before 2142 PKs there were BF2 GLs. It's consistently been a big part of the game, for good or bad.

              Long term I think it will settle down. There are just so many guns and as we unlock more there will be weapons people migrate to. For now the selection is so limited, the number of GLs on weapons is at an all time high.

                Keep in mind when BF2 came out the grenade launcher was the same and so was squad switching while dead. Dice fixed this by adding a 20m no explode to the launcher and made it so you had to be alive to switch squads.

                Expect the same for BC2

                  I am more annoyed with the people who run around with RPGs and Carl Gustavs and insta point blank shoot you........The kill radius is so small on the 40 MM that I can bear it............

                      They have a pretty tiny blast radius, i cant seem to kill anyone with them but I get killed by them a lot.

                      I don't think they explode at point blank, but its like MW2 where the impact itself kills you. I kind of wish it didn't do that.

                        The 40mm does in fact have an arming distance.

                        If fired within 10m or so it is simply a projectile, so if it directly hits you it will kill you. It also destroys walls and things at that range, but not nearly as well as if it actually exploded.

                        I already have the extra 'nades unlock, and spamming these onto a squad of medics is absolutely hilarious. If you have two assaults throw down ammo hubs next to each other you can pretty much resupply yourself with them as fast as you can reload and fire them.

                        The OP is right, expect to get tubed often.

                              I second this. Hate being killed by AT at close range. Oh well...I am sure this will subside once people get better unlocks.
