    Grenades suck. (except infect ones) The majority of players use tomahawk or C4 instead and for good reason. It is hard to kill with a grenade by the time it explodes you are either clear of the blast or at least far enough to avoid any lethal damage.

    The Buff
    Grenades currently have a fuse time of about 2.5 seconds or 3 seconds this timer goes down as soon as it is thrown. The buffed grenade has a fuse of 5 seconds till it explodes but you can now cook it for up to 3.5 seconds so by the time it is thrown it will explode after 1.5 seconds. Like the tomahawk the indicator to how cooked the grenade is will appear like a bar above your hot bar exactly like the tomahawk. Pulling the grenade out starts the timer and you can toss the grenade at anytime. If you hold it over 3.5 seconds you will automatically throw the grenade. To compensate for this buff you can now blow yourself up with your own grenade. Also players can kick grenades away by right clicking with their knife on them. This is fair anyways since you can already hurt yourself with a C4 or Molotov. Hopefully these changes will get more players to choose the grenade.

    I do actually use the grenade and I think it's fine as it is. I think being able to do damage to yourself with a Molotov shouldn't be a thing in the first place.. I think this buff is going to be far too complicated and confusing for new players and even for more experienced ones. I think if any buff is needed it could be just a change in the time before it explodes down to 2 seconds or so. Kicking away grenades will be extremely confusing.

    Well you can damage yourself with a C4 anyways and it makes sense. If you stand in front of an explosion or walk in fire you should be damaged. The system will be fairly intuitive just hold the grenade longer if you want it to blow up sooner or shorter if you want more delay. Also I thought of new players who might hold it too long and potentially blow themselves up so it is automatically thrown after 3.5 seconds. If the bar counting down the grenade is confusing you can always count to 3 then throw it. Forgot to mention that the timer resets if you put the grenade away or switch weapons.

    I understand that the idea is certainly intuitive but I can imagine it would just be confusing.

    Well the point of a grenade is to throw it so that it explodes right when it hits the target, not just drop it on the ground and wait for someone to land on it. A situation like you described shouldn't be the case in the first place I think

    What I don’t understand what you mean by this also the grenade is thrown like normal only difference is that you can control how fast it explodes.

    That you should throw your grenades so that the timer deciding when the grenade explodes is at zero when the grenade lands on the target, and by the "situation" I meant the second sentence in your thread

    In the majority of shooting games that include grenades this is a common function. I don’t see anything wrong with perfectly timing grenades to explode instantly when they reach the target.

    Maybe a good compromise is that it only applies to the single grenade and the grenade is renamed to a Semtex grenade.

    You can disagree with an idea without having to be super disrespectful about it. We are aware grenades in Infect are OP but this is an idea for the other gamemodes as @Ice_Bear1 said.
