Predict new tactics that players exploit over and over.

Things like early Gears grenade tagging, "two piecing", etc.

Hulk suspect lots of grenade planting and turtling while puny human waits for enemy to come barreling through.

#2 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Sticking grenades into walls sounds cool but it might get really annoying.

#3 Posted by Subway (971 posts) -

There are some new grenades that just send the enemy flying but doesn't kill them, I could see people whoring those out.

#4 Posted by Vlademir (1029 posts) -

Camping with planted grenades and exploiting the new stopping power.

#5 Posted by REforever101 (258 posts) -

suicide bombing. like, if you're willing to die in order to take out the whole enemy team you can pull the pin on all your grenades and then just charge the enemy. boom

Yeah but if your dumb enough to run out in the open with a grenade, you will be downed amazingly fast and blow yourself up with your own grenade without killing anyone.

I love that they added stopping powers. Take down grenade taggers with ease! :D

I hope a smoke grenade will detonate any wall grenades that are near the blast.

Don't rush straight at someone then?

Those aren't exploits. They wanted the first one to be tactical and that's the point of the planting grenades, and stunning people with the smokes now.

Yes, lets give the future glitchers ideas to start out with.

#12 Posted by YourEvilTwin67 (22 posts) -

i think thats its going to be more annoying when people put grenades in the ground then you walk up thinking that you could pick up the grenades and BOOM!! your dead that would be kinda funny to watch though

Hulk think grenades probably have some sign of being active so players can avoid them if they see it.  Either a sound or some kind of flashing light.
#15 Posted by 10MP (311 posts) -

none of these exploites in this thread are even close to as bad as shotgun rushing

holy crap am i glad that is out now with stopping power

#16 Posted by MOLE (321 posts) -

1 person holding the sheild, while the other standing behind him, so you got 2 guys shooting, while only half a person is not protected

It WILL WORK

#17 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

That concussion grenade probably, it's a neat idea but I imagine it's going to get annoying fast.

#18 Posted by ajarbuckle (173 posts) -

well at least there will be no shotgun whoring. Cliffy B said that he didn't mean to allow that into the first one....

mind if I use that?
#20 Posted by Arkthemaniac (6535 posts) -

I can definitely foresee some massive bugs with the chainsaw dueling system that could be exploited.

#21 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

i predict grenade "traps". and also maybe cover bouncing to avoid lancer/hammerburst fire

On Hardcore matches in COD4 I used to tell my team to gather around so they could help me glitch up to a new spot I found. I then pulled the pin. :D

At the begging of matches, I could see some maps where you could throw them up real high to hit enemies. Like the frags in cod4. That could get really annoying.

Yeah... I hope that there explosion radius is pretty small. At least it wouldn't kill you though.
#26 Posted by Handicrap (11 posts) -

Personally, I hope the crab walking and kung fu flips don't make a return. Other than that people can exploit whatever they want.

#27 Posted by pause422 (6179 posts) -

shouldn't even be called 'tactics', it makes it sound more like it takes some kind of effort to do.
My main prediction though is this- since the whole people rushing and just jumpin around with the shotgun is getting tackled with stopping power and them dying faster by assault rifles...I think te new exploit will be using the whole stick grenades to walls think. Just look at the concussion and what they do, I figure people will start just doing that constantly, then run up to someone as they are trying to stand back up after being knocked down and just shotgun them in the head. I've already seen it in a few videos..I just hope it doesn't get out of hand, but if it does once more I'll be done with gears mp for good.

#28 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

well you can shoot the concussion grenades but does anyone know wether they'll be a starting weapon?

#29 Edited by pause422 (6179 posts) -

Thankfully I have no problem even if this does go to shit, there's so many other games coming out anyway that I care about more. I don't think its been said for sure yet, but some people were saying they replace the smoke you started with in Gears 1.

#30 Posted by Aaron89 (95 posts) -

I'm apprehensive of those new "concussion" smoke grenades as well. It can be stuck to any surface, tagged, or randomly thrown. I really don't see why EPIC put this in, the smoke was valuable before (you just had to know how to use it). That's what frags are for...

Well, I have to wait and see how it'll turn out. Oh, and in the videos it shows everyone starting with one smoke grenade -- so picture 10 people on a map having it.

Are they one and the same or do you have to pick them up seperately?
#32 Posted by Aaron89 (95 posts) -

You mean if the smoke grenades you spawn with have the "concussion" ability? From what I've seen so far, yes. That means 10 people on the map (in a full match) will have it every round, or even after every spawn.

Gosh, the explosion radius better be small.

Don't feel dumb! I'm anticipating this release like it's some new shiny console ... I just want it so badly. My last purchase for my Xbox 360 was GTA 4 -- and it got boring after 3 weeks. I've needed a new game for so long, and now it's the sequel to my verymostfavouritegameever!

Although I'll likely be buying Fable 2 shortly before...

Camping a grenade spawn with tagged grenades everywhere.

haha That is a pretty funny idea. Hopefully none of the grenade spawns are in a one entrance room. 0_0
