View Full Version : Easier way to get Hot Potato

The game registers when you pick up grenades off the ground and throw them, it doesnt check if they were your grenades or not. With that in mind, an easy way to get the return 5 live grenades is to simply throw your own grenadesa at the ground and then pick them up again and throw them at the enemy. This could be done on any level.

Is this confirmed, or you think it'll work ? If so, I'll simply do that for the achievement ...

It's not a suggestion, it worked for me when i did it.

I wish I would've known that before I got it. I got it by standing in the corner of the balcony on the St. Lo mission, and just picking them up and throwing them at the Germans who were trying to flank the building from the back. The Close Quarter Combatant achievement really isn't that hard, I got it by playing "Mayenne Bridge" on Easy and just completely removing my fingers from the trigger buttons, and making good use of grenades and cover. It might be easier on a different mission, but that's how I got mine.

I got this achievement legit on the third American mission, the one right after the first British mission. A lot of grenades were tossed at me and i got it by just returning them.

this achievement is so easy, I got it on accident so who cares if there is an easier way to get it

For the ones who want to get the Close-Combat achievement, the easiest level I find to do it on is Chapter 2. Do it on the easy setting go to the chapter and beat them down. I beat all of them down and I didn't die once.
