View Full Version : Grenade throw indicator is messed up.
03-13-2012, 03:12 PM
Scenario time! There is a sniper in the window I'm standing under. and I can't shoot him from where I stand. Time to use a grenade. I pull it out, hold the right mouse but-ton (Seriously forum peoples, do something about this...), line up that blue arc that tells me the grenade's path, and tap the left mouse but-ton. The second I throw it the blue arc jumps three feet, the grenade hits the top of the window and falls on me and my buddy's heads killing us both.
Now the scenario above is just an example, but similar events have happened to me almost every time I go to throw a grenade. I align the blue targeting arc, press the left mouse but-ton, and whad'ya know? The targeting arc changes it's mind and decides that the probable path of my now airborne grenade is several feet higher than before resulting in a few choice words and a dead grenadier. Is this something that only I experience?

This grenade arc is also misrepresented when you're trying to throw a grenade from cover. The arc is much larger than what is shown.

Thanks for the reports guys. McSkivv keep in mind that the left mouse click is for over handed toss and right mouse click for under handed toss. Using left and right mouse clicks simultaneously seems to be whats giving you this jump in direction. Hope this helps Mcskivv.

That is very helpful UbiCaliS. I'll be sure to try that out tonight.

Okay, wait a minute, I'm a little confused.
It sounds like you were holding the right mouse but-ton to aim, left click to throw. I haven't been using hardly any grenades, actually, so haven't paid attention. Does just holding the left mouse but-ton and letting go allow you to aim with the same blue arc before throwing? If that's the case, does the same process hold true for both under- and over-handed throws, with just the difference being in which but-ton you use to do it?
This would be the instance in which I realize a tutorial or digital manual really does need implemented.

That's correct Rd.Octobr. Right click and left click will both show the blue aiming arc, with just a difference in the kind of toss. An optional tutorial link doesn't sound like a bad idea either. Hit the suggestions thread. http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/405168-Suggestion-Thread/

I got in a couple matches Friday night, and I can definitely say that the issue wasn't a glitch but instead my misunderstanding of the controls. Thanks for the help guys. See you all in phase two!
