Cooking off a grenade means pulling off the pin and waiting a while before throwing it so it blows right as it hits the ground or in mid-air.

Thanks Comrade Pedrovska,

Just as well it can't be done, it sound like a great way to blow myself up.

Pulling the pin is only the first step. You also have to let go of the "spoon" (the metal thingie on the side) for the fuse to start.

tvihErr, I guess I wasn't clear about what I meant. There IS the small charge bar on the bottom right corner, but it isn't necessarily such a big help. First of all most of the time when I need to throw a grenade I don't have time to look away from where I'm throwing. And the bar moves so fast that it's hard to get the thing to land where you want - either it goes too short, or then too far :uhm: Then again that can be accounted to me being a lame no-can-do.

What I meant is something that probably can't even be done... a sort of 3D bar moving in the main view that at least show approximately the distance the thing is going to fly. Doesn't necessarily need to show the arc, although it'd be nice. If you've played... err, was in Splinter Cell? Yes I think that was it. There was such a bar in Splinter Cell to see where you're throw is going to end up.

Thing is, it might look a bit silly. But it'd be more realistic than not having too good of an idea where the grenade is going to land.

I think the best thing for you to do is to practice it. I find it quite simple for me. And do not forget that you can always just bounce the grenade off walls and such to get the grenade in the same location as powering it up would.

Actually, there is no need for cooking a grenade. In day of defeat you do it to prevent somone being able to throw it back at you. Seeing as you cant do that here, it doesnt matter.

Also, dods strength is the fact that it doest have vehicals. The reason its such a good game is that there are no asshats messing around in planes, no idiots camping for a plane, no morons killing each other for getting a tank before he could. There is nothing to envy your neighbour, thus all you get is pure flowing always attacking infantry combat.
