C4 wouldn't bug me that much if people actually used it as a tactical mine...

of sorts... Something that was strategically placed somewhere with foresight involved and then detonated at right time netting a kill.

Instead 99% of the time I see C4, people are using it as a "super grenade". Throw it in somewhere you would use a frag and then detonate it the split second it lands or goes in the room. Somehow I dont think that was the main purpose of C4 when it was put in the game. Kind of reminds me of what quickscoping is to snipers. Not nearly that bad but kind of... :\

Oh well, got to love flak jacket.

The problem is that C4 is so easily visible, even without engineer, that using it as like that is almost pointless now. And if ANYONE is using engineer on the other team, that kills the possibility of using it that way.

I miss it too though. One of my favorite things in dom was C4ing the flags.. :/

Range and its speed of travel through the air needs to be severely toned down. The thing flies like 30 feet in half a second then blows up stronger than a grenade. That's not ok.

God damn it.

Oh yeah thats true. But i have seen in past games where people have hid C4 cleverly like on rooftops and on the sides of walls or behind crates in order to surprise people thus getting over how visible it is. But you are right on engineer putting a damper in it otherwise.

I miss being able to effectively use C4 as a trap, instead of only being able to use it that way occasionaly (and usually when I'm baiting someone into a room where i've c4d the ceiling).

Off topic a tad:

Friends and I were in a lobby in MW3, the enemies were a clan and wanted to 'swap flags' back and forth with us so they could move up on the clan challenges...

Friend in my party ran ahead to B and placed his C4. Waited for all 6 to hop on, BOOM! Don't think we ever laughed that hard before. Solid minute of just hysterical laughing.

=========

I do miss being able to just place it on flags and when you hear 'losing B' detonate it. In these maps though, there's not much 'Losing A or C'. It's just a f***fest at B because of their design and the spawns. MW3, you could take whatever flag you wanted. Not here....

well, sometimes using it as a grenade doesn't really work.

They should make it so that it only explodes if it's stuck to something
