What's the more frustrating way to go, a Rad or a Frag?

Phantom nades are the worst. Rarely do I encounter phantom rads, ocassionally there are phantom flashbangs, but it seems like half the time Frags are totally phantom, with neither sight nor sound.

Of course, they're not even as bad as Ventus's trademarked Phantom Rockets.

Rads, because with lag they can stick you after you've dodged them.

In my experiences, Phantom Flashbangs have no effect on the person getting flashed.

And Phantom frags are strange, but if you see someone flailing their arm and nothing gets thrown, you've got a short bit of time to guess where it may have landed.

Rads would have to be the most annoying for me, since the hitbox to stick someone is so large. It's like a guaranteed kill if you throw it at someone who is close enough.

Rad.

And doesn't Reverse give you a free Rad?


Yup. And Bomb bag makes for a Third. Make it rain melty death.

Good to see you again, Nexus.

How do you survive a rad if it is tagged onto you???

Even when I tried heavy armor I still died from a non upgraded rad-tag. I had no damage outside of it hitting me too.

Essence salvage, mending (possibly).

Also, Explosive Focus does make it so you can't die from a single frag if you aren't already damaged.

Rad. Or, as _Signal puts- reverse dignity. Rads aren't fun.

I would say frag is more frustrating (and i'm surprise the most of you doesn't think so). I hate being killed without noticing how! It's worse than backstab cause it's more surprising (almost scary^^)!

What's more, when being rad, you know you'll die so you may either kill yourself before or kill your opponent. You're not totally dead yet and you can still do something, that's why I found it less brutal than frag.

And it's funny, when you got reverse damage, to imagine the frustration of the guy who didn't got his kill
