Twice of late I've been in an APC and had some guys drop incinds a good 10-15 feet from the apc yet somehow we caught on fire and blew up even tho we were clearly well out of dropping range. The bug is still there and with this dropping thing it just makes it that much more odd when they go off away from the vehicle but still remain deadly. You can test this yourself with very little effort.

How about giving it a bit more trown range, giving it a sticky property, and reduce its range and damage. It would simulate the thermite grenade being placed. Reducing its damage would be purely against vehicles, to give them a greater survivability.

Until the Incendiary grenade does not kill armor any more i dont want them to be able to be thrown. If this was fixed, i wouldnt care either way if it was able to be thrown or not.


These things are still bugged to hell.


When they get dropped near by you can me like 10 meters away in a tank and you will still take damage.

I agree with those who say these damn things are bugged heavily. You can kill a Humvee with one incindi most of the time, but it can take 2-3 to burn a POS little ammo techie if you're unlucky.

Yes, they seem to be more effective against some vehicles while remaining mostly useless against others. Unfortunately I believe a fair bit of Russian APC/IFVs fall into the former category while almost every Insurgent vehicle falls into the latter, wish the were switched around.

True. I burned a healthy T-90 in Vadso with 2 inc grenades a week ago (suits him right for rushing head on into infantry). But I'd be happy if 2 inc grenades would take out techy in the same manner they burned a fully armored tank.

see, the problem is that the incendiary grenade damages materials, as defined by the games coding/engine. This is speculation, but all deployable items, FOBS, mortars etc, use materials to define them as being player controlled, manipulated. This is also key for them taking damage.

Since they are technically a "vehicle" it would be hard to change the code so that actual "vehicles" have a different material than FOB's.

In short, if you want incendiary grenades then you'll have to deal with them being able to do damage to a vehicle, unless there is a work around that some amazing person can come up with xD

I see your point. Do you think that a slower animation, and slowing the player down to scoped-in speed would compensate for that?

Is that a really bad joke? We're not playing Dawn of War and you're not an Assault Space Marine with melta bombs bro.
