Who Hates Shock Grenade

Does Anyone Hate The Shock Grenade? Cause I love it. It's always in my loadout. It's saved me so many times. From people hiding behind cover, to winning corner battles, to even shocking a group of 4 guys, to trying to shock Luke and dying. Shock grenade is my best best friend. But apparently people hate it. Idk why.

  • It's a good tool I hate how it seems to have a long range to get me but not the enemy lol.
  • When I get killed via Shock Grenade, I have a brief moment of feeling like I got killed kinda cheaply. But then again there's a dozen ways to die cheaply in this game. This one happens so infrequently (to me) that I don't end up losing any sleep over it.
  • standard loadout for my fav mode extraction:
    scatter gun, disruption, shock grenade, TL-50

    easy solution: don't play shooters. your k/d is worthless.

  • I use it and smoke grenade defensively

    I honestly don't play shooters. Thanks for the hate though. This is my very first FPS. Same as a bunch of people.. picked it up for Star Wars.

  • For turning point I use jump pack disruption shock grenade Scout trait; I jump into a group disrupt throwing down a shock grenade before a land killing myself but helping my mates have an easier push forward
  • I like shock grenade on bespin. Throw it as someones flying away. They get shocked while flying and end up falling to their death.

    I think the shock grenade is almost as annoying as disruption, but I don't see it spammed as much. If you like it, that cool bro, I'm not gonna judge you for using it, just only use it when necessary. For example; a room full of enemies.
  • I use it a little bit. Modes where people clutter rooms or stick close to objectives.
  • It's one of the best Grenades I've seen. I've had a few funny instances where I throw the grenade, an opponent tries to jumpack over it, gets jolted by the grenade, and falls to his death.

    Er mey gosh, I hate personal shield melee-ers. They run up to you, you think their shields about to come if, and they kill you with the buggy melee system

    Lol, no I don't. It's just my go to because I find it to be extremely useful.

  • I only used it to unlock the upgraded card, but I seem to remember that you don't throw it as far as compared to other grenades. Was I just imagining things?

    Unlike some players that claim that this item doesn't need skill,it does take a bit of skill you have to aim carefully to not hit yourself and even try to discover enemy movements pattern to throw precisely ahead of the enemy you want

    I don't think he meant yours specifically, just KD in general. It's a wonky stat. I get a 3-4 KD average in most games but I'll be stuck on 1.5 for a looooooong time before it changes.
  • They're great for taking down that one invincible player down a peg.

  • If I get caught by those things, it's usually my fault. They have the throwing distance of a brick, and require special timing that is effectively achievable with Scan Pulse. Cheesy to an extent, but nowhere near other cards.

  • I agree that its not completely over powered since you still have to time your throw right and be careful not to shock yourself, I don't use them personally but when they are used against me I can usually get out of the shock effect b4 they can succede in killing me

  • I hate the shocker because I still keep zapping myself by accident. :s We should be immune from the effects of our own grenade. Right now I'm just using it long enough to win the trophy, then I'll put it aside for a long while…

    Cheaply would be disruption and ES.

    Yep thats the canned answer from thise who use some of the ridiculous "skills" in the game. See post above.

    No we shouldn't. That's what makes SG actually reasonable compared to disruption.

    Not if you don't want to, but one of my greatest joys in this game is surprising dirty bubble poppers with my trusty scatter gun.

    As for the shock grenade, it does indeed have its uses. I know some people hate it because of the shock animation, but it definitely isn't unbalanced or OP. I quite frequently survive the shock actually, as the other guy doesn't always get the opportunity to capitalize on it.

  • Played Blast last night on the death star. Almost everyone had disruption, shock grenade and the TL-50. It was pretty funny, because there'd be a huge cluster of people from both sides setting of disruption right and left and doing the wiggle shock dance.
