Opinions on Bouncing Betty Grenades? and general rubberized grenades?

I think they are starting to become my favorite grenade type, if you get one stuck between multiple people, it can do a lot of damage and it is great for slagging multiple people for an extended period of time.

as far as rubberized goes, I used to hate them, but there are certain grenade types I really like rubberized. I like MIRV and really any standard elemental grenade rubberized, as long as they have a 0 fuse time, but I think all rubberized grenades work like they have 0 fuse time, right? Detonate as soon as it contacts an enemy?

I tend to only use bouncing betties if they are of the slag variety, but then again I don't have a bouncing bonny or anything :(

As for rubberized, it's usually either a tesla or fire burst (I think that's what the fire version of a tesla is) Every time I've found a Mirv variety it's generally always been outclassed by what I have been using so I never bothered too much with them.

I don't like 'em. Too tricky to use in the heat of battle.

Bouncing Betty grenades are my favourite type, but I don't often use them particularly because I play on an Axton mainly right now which is explosive build. But I think they're hugely underrated. I like them mostly because I love to watch the numbers fly. >:)

Rubberized grenades are the stupidest thing ever, though. Uuuuugh I can't stand them.

The Legendary "Bouncing Bonnie" grenade is one of my favorite grenades. Shoots the bullets as usual, but systematically lobs child grenades in a multitude of directions as it does so. Pretty damn effective.

Never used bouncing betty in BL2 until a few hours ago(one of the last things i needed for achievement). I didn't see anything great about it. It looks like it would work good in crowd control, but other grenades feel like they are more reliable then bettys.

The only grenade I use is breath of terra.

I also am warming up to the fastball that I found in one of the final chest at the end of Hammerlocks DLC. Great fuster cluck grenade.
Skyrim has become this gens Final Fantasy VII.

Homing Bouncing Betties are awesome, even better are Sticky Homing Bouncing Betties. I got one of those at lvl 43, but eventually had to sell it because it was worthless for PT 2.5.

Hate rubberized, they never explode where I want them.
Don't like Bouncing Betty. "Firing blistering shower of bullets" is what I do. Grenade should do area damage, etc.

I wouldn't mind 'rubberised' grenades if they only started bouncing after landing. Like a lobbed grenade, but starts bouncing on impact. I can't throw them over cover, no matter how high I aim, because they zip to the ground to start bouncing. Afterwards, they just bounce off of cover, and I get no use out of it.

I don't get much use out of Betty grenades, but I've found the Crossfire to be pretty good. I bought a corrosive longbow crossfire the other day. Works nicely.
