Can I give my heavy a class in throwing?


Because right now he throws C4 like a 2 year old girl, so many times im trying to throw it on a tank as it goes past and the incredibly slow throw speed means it fails. Seriously there is a war going on can the heavies not throw with just a little urgency.

You are PLANTING the C4 not chuging it like a grenade.

Do you have ANY idea how ridicoulus it owuld be if oyu could throw C4 over any signinificant distance?

Some people have figured out how to throw it, I've had C4 lobbed 10-15m across rooms at my MAX's lately.

I'm all for it. If you can throw it hard and far that would be awesome. Now, if you can shoot it and blow it up don't you think throwing hard and fast should make it blow up on contact? I agree. So now people can throw it hard and fast, but if they throw it at their feet or near their feet they suicide! I like it. You sir are a genius!

Higby, make it so!

I wish I could throw it and shot it in the air to airburst it.
Like we can do in Brink with grenades and explosives.
And now I have an ideia, make it happen higby, give us airburst grenade launchers like in BF 2142!

It would be like Bad Company 2 where I could throw C4 pretty good.

And hey, that game turned out great.

Ok but really planting is fine.

I'd be happy if you could just drop them faster... right now it's annoyingly slow.

It's not that the throw is slow, it's the animation that's misleading. I understand it's made slow for balance reasons, but please make a decent planting animation to back it up! Right now there's no telling if you are done throwing or not right until the moment that detonator's in your hand.

Yeah, it takes way too long to transition from drop to setting it off.


Being able to actually throw it upsets the intent of the thing, though.

While I understand you, I really think that a lot of things need more attention than the throwing of C4.
