I mainly play hardcore, and this has been on my mind for a while. If I throw a grenade at an enemy, and one of my teammates accidentally is in the vicinity, I die, along with the enemy, but still. Again.. if I set up and IED and a teammate is near when an enemy triggers it. I die again.
I get the friendly fire-rule in HC. Just watch where you're pointing you're freakin' gun. I've got no problem with that. But I think, when it comes to grenades and IED, it's completely unfair.
I can think of two ways to fix this:
- remove friendly fire-rule from grenades and IED's or,
- make friendly grenades and IED's visible for teammates. Friendly grenades could have the throwback icon from core, and IED's could be shown as the Sitrep perks does. That's way at least you would have a warning.
I've have disregarded C4's because, like guns, it takes a deliborate action to set off, and therefore would be your own fault.
Please let me know what you think.
