The kickback turns all grenades into Quickboom grenades for a certain amount of time, if the timer hadn't ended before you died, you will repawn with the kickback still in effect. This is why it pisses people off.

It works on a timer that goes even if you die. Therefore if you spawn in the time limit you still get it.

 

I think people expected it to end once you died, but I guess that wasn't thought of.

all kickbacks that come with a timer works until the time is up, so for instance speedy-G, cash-em-in, and sadly even quickboom indeed

Wow, that´s incredible lame when you ask me. What´s the reason behind this? Does another offensive kickback works like this? Because I only see Quickboom and T-Bolt kickback kills in this game.

No. Just Quick Boom. They kinda "nerfed" it, I think. Increased medal requirement. As if THAT helped.

 

Although I'm surprised you see T-Bolt kickback kills. All I see is Quick Boom and RPG, and if you try the Lab, Mega Boom.

Oh, the nerf did help it. QB pre-nerf was terrible, with people able to rely solely on these nades for 70% of the match was ridiculous... Now it is just an annoyance that is barely tolerable...but it isn't enough to win the game for you like it used to be...

 

 

 

On another note, I hate when I activate my timed kickback and it gets deactivated(wasted) when someone leaves...

There is one other. The one I use.

 

Gotcha. I consider that just as offensive considering you can sprint around and have the drop on every non cloaked user.

 

2nd cheapest kickback in the game IMO. But at least I have to still use my guns to get kills right? Smiley Indifferent
