Description

Take an apple to your yard and try it yourself. Grenade throwing distance in Arma is ridicules.

Has this been neglected or is this simply too hard to fix properly?

Apple is a bad example since it is much lighter and therefor can´t store that much energy.

Tried it with a 400 gram ball; result = 60-70 meters (anyway by that flight time the fuze would maybe explode in mid-air which is not intended)

I like the way it is atm maybe 10 meters less of the current max wouldn´t hurt

I said apple because even with a lighter apple you probably won't come close to competing with the Arma soldier. Best info I could find online indicates 40m, but even that seems rather optimistic for me when wearing combat gear. Not to mention if you throw from crouch or prone (haven't tested those).

Stop wasting food. Take a stone or whatever.

I think this is the correct throw distance

Well yeah that happens often, but sometimes you do get ridicules throw distances :)

Let's face it a meter in Arma looks like half a meter anyway. :D

Ingame you can throw up to 30-40m. this is rather realistic.

Updated by galzohar over 3 years ago

You're throwing them wrong then. I managed to pull of ~60m throwing at a good angle. Might be possible to do even more, but I haven't succeeded after several attempts.

I think grenade throws are fine at the moment, if you throw it any shorter of a distance blowing yourself up will be much more possible.

Updated by galzohar over 3 years ago

Well, the minimum throw distance probably doesn't need adjusting, just the maximum one, which is way too far (>60m).

As said before, 60 meters are possible in RL.

I agree, no adjustment needed it is not so over-the-top as it is described
