What do you think about that ?
I understand the developers research a context of a mature realism of this game (Yes, okay, a game with aliens is not real life, but it's science fiction, which I remind the definition: what could be the future or unknown worlds starting from the current knowledge).
For that, a grenade thrown at our feet, does not cause more damage? I would not say it would have to cause death, however some players find pleasure in throwing their own grenade at their feet to get rid of some skulk,
but it would be quite possible to make so that a grenade exploding at close range (and launched by us) is killing us. And, depending on the distance we take much more damage. It is a grenade not an apple ( from the current knowledge :D
My idea is so simple: more damage when the grenade is close, 100 to 120 hit points of damage to our own grenade thrown at our feet (50/60cm).
What do you think ?
