    It looks like it would be a good choice for HQ or Dropzone, pinging granades over the enemies cover and airbrusting above them for multiple kills sounds like a good deal to me. In practice I found it to be hopeless, needing at least 2 to 3 shots to kill anyone and always giving my target the chance to return fire and kill me before I can finish them off.

    Has anyone found a use for this weapon or had any luck getting kills with it? I've given up on it now.

    Best advice I can give is to put your reticle on whatever cover they are using...lock in the distance using L3...then step forward about 1 meter farther then the cover is deep. So if they are hiding behind a crate. Ping the front of it, then take a couple steps forward to eliminate how thick the crate is and obviously aim above it.

    No. Splash damage is insignificant and I was using it for that reason initially. Flash grenades are better

    Think I might have to give that a go tonight. Killing people who think they're behind cover should be fun.
