picking up pipe bombs???

There is one level where u need to pick up pipe bombs (I have beaten that level), but after that point I see these green highlighted tubes on the ground...but I can't pick them up NO MATTER WHAT (I'm assuming they're indeed pipe bombs). I go over them, and they lose the green tint, so I must be close enough to grab them right? Well I have pressed every button the 360 controller offers, and I can't pick them up. Is this some glitch, or am I just doing something wrong?

Are you full of pipe bombs? Do you have grenades or pipe bombs selected?

It means you have a full inventory of pipe bombs already. You press the B button to change your grenade types. It wasn't until the last level on PS3 that I realised this and it drove me nuts! Change to pipe bombs, throw a few and then you can pick up som more

  1. A: Context action
  2. A: Take cover against objects. Press A to exit from cover. You can use the left analog to "aim" towards new cover and press A to charge to it.
  3. B: Tap it to change your secondary firearms. Hold B to open a menu to switch weapons/grenade types.
  4. X: Reload firearm
  5. Y: Context look
  6. Y: Revive a fallen ally/co-op partner
  7. Y: Man a turret
  8. RB: Throw grenade
  9. LT: Fine aim
  10. RT: Fire your weapon

Try holding the "B" button and opening the weapons menu. Select the pipe-bombs from there. It sounds like your inventory is full ...

The crappyness of this game is underlined by not telling the player the about the hold "B" for weapon selection.

Thanks for the tip made it easier to complete with the pipe bombs!
