They were tons of fun in the first two Modern Warfare games, Battlefield games (Bad Company 2 and 1943 especially), and Halo 3 (Brute Shot). It is also awesome in some less popular games like Chronicles of Riddick, and Turok. I really do not have a problem with it, as in most cases it is pretty inaccurate and a decently balanced weapon.

Grenade launchers have their place in Multiplayer if balanced correctly.
GOOD EXAMPLE: In Reach, it is a single shot weapon that must be reloaded after firing.

Adjusting the damage (or other) values of a weapon can be considered incorrect (and lazy) balancing.

The same has been said about sniper rifles. Oh man! The amount of whining I've received from people who've rage quit for getting shot over and over. It's not my fault they're so fucking dumb that they keep going to the same place! Though I have to add it is really funny when you see them running around looking for you while ignoring everyone else on your team, only to get headshot whilst sprinting.

Essentially, yes. That's kind of what I hear when I see people whining about me using a sniper rifle.

I forgot to mention that I only play hardcore. Less health and same weapon damage makes the grenade launcher a very easy weapon to get kills with. Even if it is balanced in core, where it basically has to land at the person's feet, it is not so in hardcore. In BF3 in core, the grenade launcher is essentially useless because you have to have near perfect accuracy and direct impact the enemy. In hardcore, the grenade launcher is comparable to the one from MW2 and turns into the perfect noob weapon. If they made Flak Jacket more effective in hardcore in both BF3 and BO2, or if they decreased the damage of all explosives in hardcore, this wouldn't be a problem.

it all depends on how effective the grenade launcher is, in mw2 I was sick of people using it, it made the game a complete mess most of the times and it was boring as hell!

Ahh yeah. Forgot about that (been a while since I played BF3), and I also play on hardcore, or at least used to since I don't even play the game any more. Yeah, you'd quite often get twats running around with the noob tube lobbing grenades at everything. I find it's only a problem when you don't know there's someone running around who can't shoot straight. Once you know he's there, you can deal with it.

Make them more balanced and harder to get. Then I will not dislike them so much.

Exactly, they ruined Modern Warfare 2. But in what other games is this question even really relevant? I've never noticed it as that much of a problem in any game except Call of Duty. In fact in quite a few shooters, grenade launchers are almost useless.

I love me some One Man Army grenade launcher spamming in MW2. I was the master of that shit in S&D. Pissed so many people off and clutched so many times.

It was priceless.

A couple? Last I played that game (which was ages ago) between the launchers and the Javelin, I don't think I even saw anyone shooting a gun.

It might have to do with the fact that I play with 2-3 noob tubers on my team. I NEVER play alone....ever.

I just use whatever gun I have in my hands.

Do you play with a headset? Since they're using commando and not ninja pro, you should be able to hear them coming.

Grenade launchers are one of the most broken weapons in every game. Dont game me wrong im pretty decent at using them but they are pointless.
They will either be overpowered or underpowered but this isnt the major problem here. The problem is that sometimes you shoot on the target and it doesnt blow up just hits them and they die, sometimes they dont. There are inconsistencies here. Moreover, somtimes you shoot at the ground to blow it up and it doesnt blow up. As stated earlier there are major inconsistencies and im starting to wonder that it isnt due to my skill at using them but them being soooooo broken.

Games mentioned are CoD and Battlefield... what about the Boomshot in Gears?

In Gears 3 they used to have lobby's with specific weapons only - I remember that they had "Boomshots only" on more than one occasion.

What you should consider is that these weapons are not real - in reality, all weapons would seriously spoil your day.

Pistols, SMG's and shotguns are CQ weapons.
Rifles, grenade launchers and LMG's are distance weapons.
Sniper rifles are long distance weapons with the specific intention that the target is unaware of the threat.

None of these weapons are generally deployed as intended in the likes of CoD/Battlefield/Ghost Recon etc.

Armchair warriors/generals would have a different attitude if they had to deploy in-theatre in a real life situation... respawns only exist in games!

You asked what other games it applies to. I expect to kill and die quickly in hardcore, but when they don't balance the explosives, or flak jacket, for hardcore, the grenade launcher becomes a lot of noobs' primary weapon because you don't have to have skill to use it like you do it core (basically a direct impact in core). In Black Ops 1, Flak Jacket was balanced for hardcore so that you couldn't die in one grenade or one shot from a grenade launcher. In the later CoD games, and in BF3, they didn't do this.

Typical troll... quick to criticise without possessing the intelligence to actually understand the basis of the original post.

The point that you have totally failed to grasp is that weapons are never used in games the way that they are intended in reality... yes, they are all capable of killing, but they are intended to be used in a specific way.

So, Ty-Rex... I can grow hair around my mouth... what's your excuse for talking like a twat/c**t?

If you hear them coming, find where they're coming from and right as they lunge, if you're quick, go to crouch and move a little left or right. Knife dodge!
