Plasma Grenade vs. Frag Grenade vs. Pulse Grenade FAQs

#131XBL_Mikey0629Posted 11/21/2012 3:07:57 PM
From what I can find the Carbine fires on average (from the footage I looked at on Youtube) 3.8 rounds per second. This does indicate a likely firing cap of 4-4.25 rounds per second. This means that the full magazine can be emptied in about 4.5 seconds. My numbers may be skewed because I was watching footage of the carbine. I am merely posting this as a non-biased third party.

Really unfortunate that a bunch of trolls ruined this otherwise useful FAQ Topic. Thanks TC for doing a great job with this and continuing to update based on info, even if it is given to you in an extremely hostile, rude, and childish way. Anyways I'd like to ask if anyone has had any success with the Pulse Grenades? I tried reading all the posts here (it was hard) but I didn't see anyone that likes them here. I've been trying to figure out how these things can be used practically and they just seem crappy. Sure they can stop an attack for 3 seconds I guess but I'm not sure I've ever gotten a kill with one. I feel like the game sorta treats them as a "power" type weapon but like I said I've had little to no success with them. Thoughts??

Honestly, I think they are more for crowd control than damage. Need to stop the flag carrier? Chuck a pulse in his way.

I use the Pulse Grenades but only ever with the perk that let's you start with two grenades, because one is crap. If you toss two as quickly as possible and right next to each other, you cover a lot of space. I frequently catch people on Complex with this as they run into the map's main attraction, the roof building. Toss a grenade at an entrance and one next to it so that if they were to run inside deeper they'd just run into another field of pulse grenade.

I get kills with them pretty frequently now that I'm getting a bit more used to them. They're pretty decent if you can find cute little uses for them, but they would certainly benefit from a buff in either daamage, duration, or radius. At least one of these buffs is pretty necessary in my opinion, because even if they're usable, the other grenade types are much better.

i love how people are STILL complaining, yet the TC said he was wrong. you guys may not have been trolling *originally*, but the fact is that YOU are all STILL carrying on about it after he said thanks and that he would fix it. so you are now trolls because you keep posting on here thtat he was wrong and bla bla bla.

oh, and to mr.3x zoom guy. its not 2x -.- its 3x, and even if its not exactly 3, its much more than 2x. so for all that it matters, (since its much much closer to 3 than 2) ill accept it being a *3x zoom* rather than "oh, its like a 2.7x zoom". lol


and for that, whats it matter? maybe 2x/3x in covenent measuments is a differnt distance? lol. (this is just poking fun at the whole thing, not a serious part of this comment)


yoiure wrong

the carbine has the widest field of vision when zoomed and maybe thats what is throwing people off, but its still 2x zoom. It always has been 2x zoom.

I mean, this stuff isn't even a matter of opinion. The fact that the arguments have gone on this long is nothing but stubbornness. Or some very committed trolls.


stubbornly commited egotistical trolling


aww, i'm sorry. Are you still mad that Romney lost?

And seriously, there is no trolling, in reality we are trying to help Sterling get the correct information.

It seems like he doesn't make these topics as a service to the community or because he wants to get the correct information out there, but for no reason other than to garner love and attention from the community, now, im not belittling his effort, but his motives are certainly up for debate.

Pfft ok I wasnt referring to you, and I was being silly regardless.

Not sure what the hell Romney has to do with this discussion that was a pretty pathetic ignorant attempt at a zinger.

But since you mentioned it I voted for comrade Obama, because rich people dont deserve their money, I do. Besides, even though socialism has never worked anywhere else I just know it will work here, I mean this is America, we can overcome trivial things like history, economics, and common sense.

All that other stuff aside, thanks for the grenade information! The fact that pulse grenades don't explode on contact seems kind of lame to me, so I'll probably stick with frags and occasionally stickies. Well done sir.
