And don't even get me started on Flak Jacket.

If you are gonna use grenades, use Semtex Grenades. It's easy to get stuck grenade kills in this game, and FJ is useless against that...

(Inbefore EMP stuck grenade counter - that rarely happens)

I am glad explosives in general are weaker in this game.

More focus on your gun.

This, C4 solves all your camping problems.

It blows my mind every single time I get a kill with C4 from a person camping in a window. How can you know you are going to camp in a window (sniper/lmg) and not put on flak jacket and tac mask.

Nades are good for dom if you know how to use them though. I see people spawn and throw nades that land right on the flag.

C4 is unlocked in like..........the 40s through, which means I have to suffer through a majority of ranks using grenades when I'd be better off throwing water balloons at them,.

are you high? Treyarch has a grenade fetish, if it werent for flak jacket grenades would be too powerful

C4's lethal range is about one step in game larger than a frag grenade's.

Its not a supergrenade. Its just more useful because the maps are so tiny.

The issue is not the lethal range. If it was only a trap, I would be perfectly fine with it. But it is not. Both frag and semtex have a detonation time. Even if you master them, you are still making the best approximate calculation you can. C4 has a remote detonation. You detonate it as soon as it gets anywhere near an enemy. It even has a shortcut for detonation. Those factors makes it more effective than both grenades because you have the most control AND the best lethal range.

The times I get killed by a C4 as a trap make me cringe and grin at the same time - I am basically thinking that cheeky bastard (both a compliment and an expression of irritation). The times I get killed by C4 as an airburst grenade make me think Home, all the way right, all the way down, A, up, A.

I can run from semtex, I can run from frags or throw them back, with C4 I can only tank it. Getting killed by grenades is mildly annoying but sometimes funny. Getting killed by C4 makes me want to quit. C4 as it stands right now, is a huge drag on the game from a fun AND competitive perspective.

Also, the small map size in general makes ALL explosives more useful and effective so that is a moot point.

imo they are weaker than previous CoD's.. but not useless by any means. i still gets tons of kills with my frags and semtex. i prefer frags cause im a pro chef.. but they both are pretty good. c4 is definitely better, but i still love muh nades!
