Frag vs. Semtex... why go sticky when you can bankshot?

Modern Warfare 3 Forum

Just curious if people have a decided preference on frag vs semtex.  I just find frags so much more versatile because you can bank/skip them into places... and you can also cook them for desired effect (airbursted frags is an artform). I just don't see much of an advantage on sticking semtex to something... other than sticking one to a juggernaut to take him down.  What's your prefernce and why?

I normally use frags but i'm using stickys at the moment just to complete challanges and get the titles.

Semtex, I'm a self proclaimed beast with them things of late, only been using them last two prestiges after running betty's and have about 500 kills and a good few sticks, I always try to and stick people if I can see them but get a few lucky tosses as well now and again.

And you cant do this with a frag...


Leaderboard at the end of that makes an interesting read as well, two players with 40 kills each and only half my score.

Nice throw, but i can do that all day long with a frag.... in fact, I can (and have) bounced one down into that tunnel and get someone camped out in there from that same spot.  I have some ridiculous frag throw kills... some 1/2 way across the map in smaller maps like Dome and Mission... I need to start putting some clips together.  it's something that I'm actually pretty good at compared to many.

I was talking about holding the button down on the grenade for so long before releasing, do that with the frag and your a goner in about 3 seconds lol

You act like that's impressive. It's not. You're lucky your opponents were garbage or someone would have flanked and did you up real nice from behind for sitting there so long like a bozo.

5000 score and a good final kill, I'm happy with it, couldn't care less if you aren't.

Solid meh. Good job figuring out the throw, but waiting to toss a grenade near the area on drop zone is hardly something I'd call amazing.
