Special Grenades!


Well, I have been playing the game for a reasonably long time, but there is one thing I have never really spent too much time messing with...

Different grenade types.

Never used a flashbang, never used a smoke grenade or an EMP, or a sticky... etc.

So I would like it if someone could tell me about their experiences with these various grenades so I can tell if they are worth the trouble.

On a personal note I can certainly vouche for concussive and EMP grenades being a right pain, when on the receiving end.

Anti-vehicle grenades can pack a punch, maybe 25% to a MBT, but they usually will see it coming and drive away.

Not to mention that the grenade physics make it near impossible to get it to land on a tank.

Smoke grenades can be kinda useful, they do fog up a good amount of area to cover a push.

Sticky grenades are fun, and very useful against MAXs.

Toss a concussion in a room before clearing it out. Nanoweave + res shield + restore kit (popped just before you go in), and that grenade does wonders.

I'd imagine Flash would be comparable
