    Grenades are not exactly the way they should be. In real life, grenades are quickly thrown hand- held weapons. Although in battle bay, they show grenades as very explosive time-taking weapons. What they should do is fix this by making a lower reloading time, and less damage ( with just a slightly bigger radius). I also think grenades and other explosive weapons should push small ships away from the explosions ( depending on how close they are to the blast radius )

    Well, idk man, nades are pretty great as they are. I mean, flares in real life definitely do not improve cannon damage, and torps cause flooding, magic healing equipment definitely doesn't exist ;)

    Bro, they already have an explosive cannon, they introduced grenades because they thought that battle bay needed a grenade like weapon, not just a reboot of a explosive cannon but with a different firing mechanism, which it currently basically is.

    Nope. Explisive cannons came AFTER grenades. So explosive cannon is a reboot of the grenade with a different firing mechanism, then? Not really, it's a combo finisher while grenades are an initiator. It has a different range, a higher cooldown and is a two-slot. There's lots of differences there.

    What point are you trying to make? Do you want the grenade to further distinguish itself?

    Would we need to prime them before tossing? Or is my grenade just gonna take 10 seconds to explode after impact?
    Lol would be cool if ya could ricochet them off walls and stuff tho lol

    Grenade is really good now.
    Changing the functionality of a weapon like that is always a last resort, and it's unlikely to happen.
    Not to mention that there's no reason for this.
    Grenade just need crit chance nerf.

    More like just make the perks give less extra crit percent, and add in more varied grenade parks (unless I haven’t seen em) like crit damage and burn duration.

    Crit chance nerf doesn’t seem like a big deal, as long as they only reduce it by a small amount.

    If it’s not a big deal then why bother at all?

    My opinion of grenade is maybe just a little kinda very one sided lol it is my favourite thing in the game lol
    But what if I’m willing to admit it’s op and compromise in admitting it possibly ;p needs a nerf? Lol
    Nerfing it’s crit chance is wrong way to go about it! Without crit the damage is mediocre at best considering it’s short range and slow projectile!
    It’s got far less range then a cannon and is much easier to avoid especially for yellow boats
    Further more adding rng to something’s effectiveness reduces skill! Do you really want more outcomes decided by rng instead of skill?
    @Nicolas @TheAntiSnipe ?

    An interesting "nerf" to look at would be increasing crit chance the closer the target is to the center. One thing is for sure. A weapon that crits nearly every time it's shot is a little too much. And ofc I say this as a hardcore nade user.

    I don’t much like the idea of crits at all! I like grenades because, like you said it crits almost every shot lol it’s reliable!
    My grenade on a good hit that crits does 2700-2800 damage ( I can agree that’s pretty op) and it crits 9 out of 10 hits so it’s reliable
    Without crit it’s 1500 (considering grenades short comings that’s very weak) if it was even a 50/50 coin toss on weather it was going to crit or not I wouldn’t use em
    Yes it would still be able to deal massive damage over the course of a match but it’s un reliability on doing good damage when you need it too would suck!
    If ya need to nerf it, do it in a way that doesn’t make it rely on rng

    My grenade already seems to have had a crit nerf, it's become common to get 3 no crit hits in a row.
