Not sure if any of you played the game at a convention or what not, or if any video went into detail about it. But I'm just curious since MW3 grenades were pretty pointless.

i don't know what you're talking about, i don't have any problems getting frag grenade kills, i used semtex for a long time, but now i actually prefer frag, i think they have more applications than semtex. sure you're left vulerable for longer, but thats what happens when you don't know when it's appropriate to cook and throw a frag.

I lost hope for the perfect videogame when they took child killing out of the first Fable.

I mean the splash damage range. The grenades in MW3 gave mostly hit markers, where as in previous COD games, those hit markers would've been deaths.

The Damage radius is decreased so you can't get kills from having a nade blow up 10 ft away but at close range they are still very powerful.

Basically you need to be more accurate with your throw.

Obviously you've never used the Semtex in MW3, cuz I've gotten plenty of Multi-kills with that. It's even more dangerous if you stick somebody...

I've gotten plenty as well. But I also got even more hit markers. Maybe it's just a PS3 problem. Just figured I'd post here since this board is the more lively one.

Grendades have been nerfed in this game, you can no longer throw a grenade all the way across the map, think Battlefield 3 grenades.

skip to around the 3:00 minute mark to hear about it.

I actually like this. Even though I did it, I'm glad it will tone down the throwing of grenades at the start of matches on smaller maps.

Thank god. No more NFL Quarterback grenade throws.

This may also cut back on some random nade kills since they know it's not going to make it all the way across the map.
