Grenades > Meds, even prem meds.

5 weight is 100 hp from premium meds.
5 weight is 5 grenades which does 250 if you know how to use grenades.

Discuss.

Nades are 100 dmg I thought! >__< So if you REALLY know how to use nades, that's 500 dmg ^__^  Then again.. Healing yourself 100 hp... That gives you more time to spam your shotties or whatever and own the nub!!! :D   I think meds win!! Cause they're fun and they make people mad! "YO FREAKIN MED USER!"

Meds are great against low level people (1-20 or so) beacuse 2 could more than half their hp. On paper, grenades are a lot better but they can ALWAYS be dodged. They have other uses though. Like, in a mansion attack and defense people can hide behind chairs. Throw a grenade and then shoot them when they try to move out of the way.

Still, I'd prefer meds because I'm not very accurate with grenades ...

EDIT: Isn't this the wrong place?

Nades always get on my nerves, but they never do more than a quarter of my hp really, I just dodge them most of the time and take minimal damage.

So I'd prefer meds.

If you do manage to hit someone with a grenade, you're going to piss them off, though, giving you an advantage.

Well, for me I'd pick premium meds because, with an extra life you can kill more people than you could with a grenade.

Like with full hp I might be able to kill 2 people (depends on skills and levels) but having a completely new life with meds can let you kill 4 people so that's +2.

While I've never really been able to do much damage with a grenade ...

I'd pick grenades and meds for attack and defense though. =D

Not really, their effective range is small anyway.  They're only any use in att/def games.

If you're on the receiving end of one, it can make it hard to see your enemies, letting them sneak in without you knowing where they are.

Meds are better than Nades in a 1v1, that is for sure. Nades are really only good for big games and small rooms.

I know people say, "OMG! SMOKE NOOB!"

And then I just shoot them, because them folk can't be talking bout my smokes like that =[

And, I just use smokes when I have nothing else that fits in my set. Works great with sprays considering lag is minimal.

Nades and their damage can always vary/miss, while Meds always heal the same amount and are always reliable to work.

There is no passion, there is serenity.

Im more of a tactical guy. I perfer granades as a way to flush enemies out of their hiding spots and into key points. I sometimes even use them as backup whenever they decide to team up agianst a certian target or a team member. I tried meds, but i found them annoying. Everyone has their opinions tho.

Nades win in Dm. Naturally because most people are preoccupied by things that aren't you, so even if it's just to weaken them or to kill them, it's all good. Meds can do wonders when you have good times to hide and can track your enemy to make sure medding is safe. Medding in a Dm bears little to no merits because if there are more than 5 people, it's hard to know where they might come from at any time.

Nades, smoke and flash.  You throw down a smoke, then a flash.  They figure you're throwing another smoke, get flashed while you turn away, then you take 'em out.  Or you spam them in a pre-determined zone in TDM.  Useful shiz.

I had to give up using nades and meds because it messes up my ss. :(

Completely random, is there anyway I can work around that?

I usually use:

Devil Slayer
Walcom something or other
Breaker... umm... the level 45 one.

and since I have some extra weight due to my awesome +3 rings I can use meds. But since the keys I use for ss are:

E and Q for previous and next weapon.
1 to switch back to the sword.

So yeah, I hijacked a thread. I'm too cool.

id sugest learning 1 2 3 if you really want to get by the problem, or even changing weapon 1 to q and weapon 2 to e and then use 4 and 5 for the other things.

Also i think nades are useful if youre trying to get away from someone.  Meds are basically only useful in 1 v 1's

Arrows = move, jajaja

Mouse scroll = change weapons
Middle mouse = reload

Plus I use my left hand!

My laptop setup is so awkward.

Up arrow = forward
Down arrow = back
Right ctrl = left
Right arrow = jump

That is the only way I can get comfortable playing on my laptop, so I have no right movement, so HS is kinda useless to me on my laptop, unless I feel like HSing into someone's shotgun.
