Alright, im sure its a very newbish question to ask but how does the "Geballe Ladung"(sp?) work? and how is it best used? Many times i have tried tossing the amazingly stabalised nade at infantry for it to not show an explosion.. or at tanks to be completely ineffective. So how is it suppost to be used? Some info would be apriciated. A side rant.. Since v.66 ive seen nothing but ATR's and these silly granades in the spawn classes with the exeption of a very few maps. The Boys is crap and might as well not be there at all, the geballe ladung is still iffy to use.. Can we at least have more zooka/faust/piat pickup kits in these maps? its frustrating to be playing kharkov having nothing else but a silly big granade to use and the odd kit with mines.. :uhm:

Most maps they are on, panzerfausts, bazooka's and piats weren't used / invented yet. The early anti-tank weapons are crap, yes, just like they were in real life.

The Gebalte ladung you have to throw ontop of a tank to do some damadge, but most tanks are too strong, so they virtually don't take any damadge. Use them on crappy stuff like Bt-7's and Vickers mark VI's.

They don't blow up. The sort of just vanish.

They only blow up if you hit an object. (not the ground)

IIRC instead of having a timed fuse like a grenade a concussion fuse was installed meaning it had to strike a hard object to detonate.

And yes the BOYS was considered crap with poor penetration. Best it can manage is top shots, sniping, and armored cars, if your lucky.

As for effectiveness thats what they had before panzerfausts, and PIAT's, and bazooka's. Now you know why the troops were so happy to get better a/t weapons.

So the side of a building/bridge should detonate the charge?

There was a mistake with the effects in 066, the grenade explodes, you only just don't see it.

there's no sound either, but it does do damage, I threw one into the side of a panzer IVD and it started to smoke

The gebalte ladung is REALLY dangerous in BF1918,but in FH,it is not a scary granade,it got less explosives than the gebalte ladung of bf1918
