It most cases you are correct. Sometimes it is legit, and this is one of those times. PE4 charges are not

desinged to be thrown like a football and detonated.


According to Dunham they were designed to be used as offensive weapons. It just doesn't take the socom community long to find an exploit.

PE4 Charges have been adjusted where you can still flush out the enemy. You just won't be able to throw them as far as grenades for example. For long distances you have grenades/concussions and for short you can use PE4 Charges.

Personally what I have noticed is people rushing with PE4 Charges as if they were grenades, they were not meant to be used in that fashion.

How short are we talking here? Can I still throw them to the upper level on sacrifice?

 


No you will not be able to throw them on the upper level of Sacrifice. Also, if you run around and see a guy that you can simply shoot but decide to throw PE4 charge and detonate, it will take your health down and in some cases kill you.

So we cant throw over walls anymore thats awesome. No grenade arc, no pressure sensitive grenade tossing, free aim while engaged in cover. Just make the game more camper friendly this amazes how quick Zipper is to nerf something instead of actually fixing the game lol.

you should not be able to detonate the c4 as soon as you throw it out in mid air IMO

 

Gives a 2-3 second delay before the detonation and it's all good to me.


 

agreed

You can still rush and toss PE4 charges, but you will have to take cover before you detonate.

I feel like this is another Zipper knee jerk extreme reactions that will wind up making the PE4 useless.
