Question about grenades

Just had a question about the new grenade rule. I understand the bb-throwing-Tornado-like grenades, but what is the ruling on sonic grenades?
If a sonic grenade is thrown, goes off, and is now sitting in the field still going off, I should still be able to move through the area correct? Shouldn't the rules state that a grenade must turn off after a certain amount of time (a few seconds)? Also, since the rules have been changed to reflect more realism in weapons (LMGs are no longer SAWs), shouldn't the grenades look like real grenades? I understand bright colors so you can find them, but they should at least have a pull pin and a spoon.

Remember... this is AIRSOFT... it is a GAME.

As such.. we've come a long way from using tennis balls with streamers to actually having BB expelling devices..

One step at a time.

****

Anyway.. to answer your question about if you can move in an area after a sonic (sound emitting) grenade has been deployed.. YES.. you can immediately move into the area after the detonation has occurred. The sound is simply due to the design.. NOT a 'lingering' toxic gas...

Once the 'action' has happened.. everyone within the 15 foot kill zone is dead.. and that's it. We are counting on AIRSOFTERS HONOR to call their hit regarding a sound emitting grenade.

If you are referring to the SFG grenade that was posted.. if you actually read the 'how-to'... it states that the beeping stops after 30 seconds. So, you're not going to have a bunch of beeping things laying around the field. They are not land mines... and they aren't filled with radio active matter that 'lingers'. Once it has detonated... it has killed who it needs to kill.. and you move on.

As for your request of all grenades 'needing' to have a pin and spoon. If YOU can design, market, produce and sell them at a competitive price.. then we would do exactly that... and you'd be a rich man.

But until then... we have to do what we can.. with what we have.

REMEMBER.. IT'S STILL JUST A GAME..!!!

One small correction to what DS said: All area effect weapons (Hand Grenades, rockets, booby traps, and mines) kill all players within a 20 foot radius of their triggering, regardless which side activated them. That means everyone is dead within a circle that's 40 feet in diameter centered on where the weapon goes off. In the case of a grenade, it's where it activates not where it stops rolling.

A 40 foot circle is pretty big. This confuses a lot of players, so try to get an idea of what it looks like before the game starts.

See Player's Kit for more info.
