Air Fuel grenades in Multiplayer

8 replies 213 views Edited Feb 27, 2009

Greetings all,

 

Most people have expressed how futile the air fuel grenade are in online multiplayer.  But, I have recently grown attatched to the V7 splicer and out of necessity have used the air fuel grenade alot.  I just wanted to share my thoughts on using this overlooked device to some of my Resistance brethren.  It sticks to things (duh, everyone knows that), BUT, look at that again.  I've stuck this thing onto peoples backs, to wraith or auger shields, to ceilings, and it is a TON of fun to stick it to the air launch jump pads things.  Sometimes folks can miss judge the amount of "safe" space to give a chargine air fuel grenade and get accidentally roasted.  If you know you are about to buy the farm, the just toss one out if you have one.  As you all know the wraith takes a few seconds to warm up before it starts discharging rounds.  I've been prone to just throwing an air fuel their way booking it.  Also if I am being chased and need to find cover to heal, I've throw an air fuel at my feet and run through the gas cloud, my pursuer will most likely not follow, sort of like a smoke grenade.

 

Anyway I just wanted to share this and pass it along to everyone.

 

Cheers!

My main problem is sometimes I'll get toasted by an invisibile smoke cloud.

The main gripe with this granade is the invisible clouds were you get no notification at all.

I agree, sometimes I have been unfairly killed by them before.

That seems to be the reason I get killed by them 75% of the time.

Yes it's something they've never fixed. I've been killed by many grenades with no indicator letting me know there was one that was thrown at me.
