    Grenades

    Post by Probe on Sat Dec 20, 2014 11:29 pm

    Just a thought, I wouldn't mind seeing a buff to grenades. NOT base damage. That is high enough. Instead, I think that the grenades should do more damage to doors. Grenades are the most important item in the game, so there is no reason for people to waste them to do a small amount of damage to the door. However, if it was buffed to kill 95% of a door's health, I think it would open up small opportunities. Instead of having that terrible moment where the thing is low health and manages to escape out the door and lock, (only to go and regen), I think it would be cool to use that primed nade to blast down the door and continue pursuit. Marines usually want doors alive, so it kind of balances out.  

    And if you're wondering about the logic of it: Read the following as a loop.

                        >Grenades do almost no damage to doors>Thing can break down the door quickly>Grenades do tons of damage to the Thing.>

    See? Its kind of stupid really. This wouldn't change much, and I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to implement, but it:

    A) Makes the game a bit more real. Like you throw a fucking grenade that kills everything. Except that door. That door is special.

    B) Opens up small opportunities. Like if the Thing is extremely low health and manages to escape you can blow up the door and chase. Or, if The Thing locks the door on 2 priority marines (like one has the flame or something) you could blow it down and try to save your teammates.

    Needless to say, this wouldn't be used by many people, but it would be a nice addition that could occasionally be a big deal.
