Lets face it. Rifle grenades suck. They are the worst thing to happen to the mod since the FW190 of .5. The weapon is switched to by a twitchy reflexive CS fragger in .2 seconds and fired into a wall in a close firefight killing both combatants. The weapon ruins infantry maps by making bullets obsolete. Who needs to aim when you have an instant fire accurate rocket launcher? Who needs intense firefights with rifles and SMGs when you can click 2 buttons and kill everyone?
The mod can live without them, and would do well to remove them. That's my side anyways. Vote in the poll.
i agree. i dont think they should be completely removed. there should be pickup kits that have rifle, knife, 2 or 3 rifle grenades. but not every assault/rifleman should have a grenade.
^What he said. One kit per side per map.
i have never had a problem with them
I find them quite handy in a pinch. They take skill to use when you try to use them properly. Take for example on Omaha, the bunker that contains the browning and mg42 above those 2 houses can pin down alot of men when active. Take a carefully aimed rifle grenade to it and troops can flood the beach. Or say theres a sniper in a church tower and you can't move from your position because you will be shot, wadda ya do....fire a rifle grenade into the bell tower. The rifle grenade has alot of pro's and few cons from my point of view. Sounds like you just have a case of the bitchies.
i think they should be taken out of the dday maps and iwo jima
No way, i see way too many people running around (mostly in Close Quarters) with rifle grenades loaded and ready. They look down and blast the floor, and anyone around them. They usually kill themselves in the process, but sometimes get lucky. Lets not even go into the fact that the rifle grenades were firing using a different type of ammunition, making it impossible to instantly switch to. A new round would have to be loaded into the chamber, and in the garand's case, the entire magazine would have to be replaced.
Well its not my problems or yours that noobs do things such as this. Their dumb what else can they do. Say that exp pacs wern't being removed and replaced, would there be a poll to remove them also because some noob puts it in a kubel and drives it into the side of a tank and blows it up killing hisself and the tank? IDK how the new sachel charges will work but still if its under the same concept as the exp pacs whats to stop one of these guys from dropping one then blowing it. How about the tards that right click with a grenade and drop it straight down just to kill someone he snuk up on? Should we do away with grenades too or what? How about the guys that see a single infantry man running by their wespe. Just to get the kill they fire the shot right into the grounf infront of them and somtimes kill themselves. This is part of the game, don't want him doing that then shoot him before he can change to the grenade and fire it.
Rifle nades are a pain in the ass, you know how much time I've been killed because some dumb ass newbie can't be bothered to actually come over and force me to break cover? Nothing is more uncool that surviving the Stalingrad Docks machine guns and being blasted by a Rifle grenade. Limit them to the late Western Front or completely remove them.
atleast its not as bad as dc .38
