Suicide bombers...

    I'm not a fan of the shooting-grenades-to-detonate them, personally. It's a fun idea that unfortunately leads to nothing but cheese.

    The ease with which you can throw a grenade then detonate it mid air in someone's face with no chance to dodge using hip-fire is plain silly.

    If they wanted more realism it should be shoot the grenade to disable it (a torn apart grenade that still manages to explode would do less damage, not more). But Honestly, I think they should just be non-shootable.

    Fun Fact: Shooting a grenade in real life actually disables it. By that i mean it just breaks it.

    But this is the far future with science space magic where anything is possible. Doubly so if you're an ork.

    I know i just wanted to put in a little fact.

  6. I'll give you a practical reason why I say absolutely not, Eldar vehicles. A prep time for Melta turns using it on them from unlikely to nigh impossible and those road kill machines don't need a buff.

    Using it to kill infantry is just called tactics.

    Simple, apply a sin penalty for suicides. If you wanna go Allahu Ackbar, that's fine, but it's technically a TK (yourself).

    Not going to lie, even if they did that, I'd still do it all the time.

    Meltabombs in melee are just the act of a desperate player base who is suffering from so many people taking advantage of the piss poor balance melee mechanics right now.

    Take at look at the sheer number of melee players each round. THAT is why metlabomb suicide is even a thing.
  10. I use krak grenades on my tactical/traitor loadouts.

    Really knives stand no chance against melee classes, so when I know I'm screwed I'll stick them with a krak and then immediately melee them before they can roll out causing a suicide but their death.

    Otherwise if you stick them they just roll towards you grenade gone.
