This is a dumb idea.

The damn nades go off so quickly, you'd never have the oppritunity to pick one up and toss it back.

Put in the throw option. Please.

The idiots may choose to run to a nade & try a throw, but they'll learn not to.
The experienced players may choose to avoid grenades or throw only if it lands on them.

BUT, at least the choice will be there. Right now you have little or no choice. If you're in a room when a grenade is popped through the exit, you're buggered - by grenade, by bullet, by bayonet, you're just buggered. If you could throw the grenade back - even IF you may die - you'd try it - just to save yourself.
That's IF it was implented in the game. So I sure as hell hope it is.

basically sums up why id like to see that option in, having nades chucked at you while hiding behind a sandbag with no other place to sucks.

and with that comment said earlier why that option is not included because it'll get smacktards trying to run up to it just to throw it back at the enemy, that hardly/never happens in dod/dods even with hacking players,newbs,lamers in the server, i dont see why it would happen in ro if its implemented

People cook nades, you don't have time to pick them up, let alone find the damn thing. Seriously next time you play and someone tosses a nade at find it and then run over to it as if you were picking it up...I bet you won't make it.

why would you try to find it if you have a chance of taking cover, but what if it lands like an arms length away from you when youre prone, standing up and running for cover wouldnt help as it would have blown up

I'll tell ya what, if you can find the nade, you can pick it up :D. Have fun!

This is the truth..those things are fairly small.

In DoD I used to replace the grenade landing sound with a different one...like a duck quacking...it was much easier to find them and hear them come in!

HAHAHA!

Seems like a sexy idea. Throwing and picking up you're nade won't be a problem because it won't help at all. DOD:S Has this problem because it primes it self by 2 seconds when you throw it.

tbh at start i tried to return some nades... i did like that feature in dods.
i used it a lot in, often if you didnt "cook" the nade well
you got it back at yer face.. or then i just quickly tossed it somewhere
and saved some teammates many many times.. it was a good,
realistic sort of feature.

I don't want to start a new thread, but a suggestion involving the grenades:

On those situations, when a grenade lands next to you, I would like to be able to run away. And I mean just rush the hell away! Right now in RO, if you are lying prone on the ground or reloading your rifle, it takes too long to get for cover.

I'm suggesting a "panic button". When pushed, ingame you would stop all those things you are doing, for instance reloadin a gun, and take few very fast steps to the direction you were facing. You could change the direction with mouse but only a little.
So many times I have been killed by a grenade because I've been reloading or lying prone, and I just cant get away from it. After the panic rush, let's say 5 meters, you could dive to ground if you want. This would consume all your stamina.
The most important thing is that you would get on the move immediately, suspending all those little tasks that seems to be more important than saving your life.

I know that it wouldn't allways save you, but it would be nice to even try than watching the reload animation and just waiting the nade to explode. I dont want any lightspeed attacks with bayonet, but a run for your life option.
