Question Grenades. Which ones to get?

What grenades do you find work best? Are they cost effective?
What are your experiences with them? Any good stories?

They're a waste of money, I find the ones that work the best are the small ones you fill your hopper with.

Paint grenades are just one more thing to make a mess with in the staging area and piss off every one around you.

They're never all that fantastic. I've seen plenty of them thrown and not go off. they're unpredictable once they're thrown. I only see a good use for them in a scenario situation.

If you're dead set on using them there's one I'd suggest, it's called Fat something, I'm trying to remember and google isn't helping.

Those used to be made by Atomic Ordnance but Tippmann bought them out and are selling them as the "Big Boy" grenade. They work fine I just don't like the idea of throwing a $6 grenade when I can shoot a few cents worth of paint instead.

Grenades have a place in scenario/tactical paintball and we use them all the time, just one example lob a grenade into a bunker and when it goes off everyone inside is considered dead or injured and has to leave the field or stay in position until treated by the team medic.

In my experience at local fields playing for the fun of it they are not so useful besides the expense most refs will only call out those that have a quarter size or larger paint mark on them which only happens to those fairly close to the grenade when it goes off.

There are a few fields I play at that will not allow them on the field for recball games, not sure why. I can understand it with the ones like this one RAP4 Hand Grenade, with the hard plastic and metal parts flying around.

Besides the RAP-4 the grenades I see most at the fieds are these from Atomic and BT.

YES! Those are the ones, I wanted to say Fat Boy but knew it wasn't quite right.

Well Tried em out today.
Tippman squad busters - cought in some grass and spewed weakly (the grenades was 2 years old -_-'
Tippman little grenade (3 to a pack) 1 was given to a friend who lost it. one was blown up in my hand when I pulled the white tab off the neck and one was burst in my top right pocket after a whole lot of low crawl.
Tippman Fat boy- Was lobbed at the second floor of a bunker but bounced off the side... =P I didint like having to un wrap the plastic while squirming for cover.

Ive heard some good things about the BT grenades. I do agree with the proper place in senario and whatnot. Which is what we are trying to promote at the local field. Its gonna be "senario sundays" n_n
Anyway At our local field The refs are fine with grenades (the field sales them so of course they would promote sales)
Here its if any paint at all gets on you from the grenade your out.
Any way I will post how the BT grenades do once I get a chance to use em.
I think the fat boy has some potential but that plastic wrapper kills me.

3 things:
1. Don't expect much out of Tippmann grenades, all I ever hear is complaining about them.
2. Throw the grenade harder next time.
3. Don't make the mistake of taking the plastic off before you're ready to throw it, you will "blow" yourself up. (That would be the mess in the staging area I was talking about.)

i play scenario paintball and i must say i use grenades all the time. i think squad bustersare my personal favourite, in 2009 i played blackreign at wasaga beach and my squad was trapped behind a dike and the other force was advancing so my fire team partner and i jumped up and hurled a few squadbusters directly at some tangos and caught them in the face. not the best example of practicality, but definitely the funniest grenade tosses ever. they fell right onto their asses and took out 2 people on either side of them. eventually we supressed hem and took the dike haha.

How about this one.
My son had one and left it in the van... I went to get in later and saw all this yellow ooze all over the seats. It took me a while to figure out what it was and mad him clean it out.
He gave the others that he had to some guy on the other team and it went off on him. Hay! I think I just found a use for grenades!!!

Based from what I've heard in other forums, grenades are effective only 10% of the time. I remember this guy telling me once that his grenade exploded on him so he looked like a smurf. Try it with homemade grenades first.

+1 on BT grenades.. thats all that my team uses. ive tried tippys and a few others to no avail. they seem to work best when you lob it or hit tree branches above discovered that one by accident..
