Betties need to either have a timer before they are armed, or make them disappear the instant the person throwing it dies, so people dont throw them around like c4. It's a little bit ridiculous as it is right now. Or at least have a slight delay between setting it off and it blowing up.
Betties really don't need any changing, you can duck under them pretty easily
So placing a Bouncing Betty or Claymore doesn't take any skill whatsoever? I beg to differ. You need to know routes and player tendencies. Otherwise it won't get you a kill.
My engineer and black hat laugh at your betty. Also, the most common way i've seen bettys used is throwing them at me when i'm killing the thrower :/
Because equipment can be countered so easily, I don't think they need to be nerfed. I personally prefer to use grenades. I find them more useful than Bouncing Betties or Claymores. I still say it takes some semblance of skill to place them.
