    Bubble Shield + Grenades.

    I know that grenades are a great way of killing them, but on countless occasions, the grenade was OUT of the shield but it still kills me. The explosion should affect those in the shield if it starts outside of the shield.

    I believe the technical explanation is that, while the "fragments" of the grenade are deflected (kinetic energy), the high-explosive component (thermal, concussive), is not, resulting in your traumatic death.

    I don't think either of them are deflected.

    Grenades can not penetrate an aegis shield if thrown overhand (left click toss), but they can be rolled into an aegis shield (right click toss).

    Yeah, I tried pegging an AEGIS shield with an overhand toss and watched as it bounced off. However, if you throw it in front of them and they walk towards it or it rolls in, it works.
