I feel I must comment on this subject because there are some people out there who are confused on how they work in the game. It's not a big deal, but since there are a fair amount out there, I figure I'd post a message here instead of replying to each and every one..

Ok.. there is a misconception that our grenades aren't thrown- they're just dropped in front of them.. This stems from folks simply pressing the fire button and calling it good.. There is a small strategy involved /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif ... you have to press and HOLD the fire button.. and the longer you hold, the farther the grenade will travel. That's it! no neat tricks here /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Oh- and one more thing- altfire does the same thing except when you pull the pin, you aren't holding down the spoon which keeps the fuze on the grenade from starting- so in other words, you've let go of the spoon and it flys off and the fuze timer has started and if you keep a hold of the grenade, you're gonna need a LOT of plastic surgery.. or a good life insurance plan!
