In several games when you pull the pin on a grenade and get shot, the grenade drops to your feet and then explodes because the pin has been pulled. Many times if there is a teammate nearby, he will be killed by the dropped grenade. What I want to propose is to give the grenade kill to the person who shot the player who pulled the pin on the grenade instead of giving a team kill to the person who was shot with the grenade in their hand. I have seen many unnecessary arguments on Red Orchestra 2 and other games when this happens because someone thinks that the dropped grenade was a tossed one by a team killer. I would like to hear what the community thinks of this idea.

As far as I know the thing is already implemented in RO2 since the RS update. However the system only works if the grenade's fuse is not yet activated when the poor guy is shot. If the poor guy being shot did activate the fuse of the grenade to cook it, then it'd be considered a team-kill.
I can confirm the thing is totally doable in ue4, however.

Would there be a way to give the grenade kill to the person who shot the poor guy who activated the fuse of the grenade to cook it? I see it more as an enemy kill than a team kill at that point because the other player on the other team caused the grenade thrower to drop the grenade. I can see how a system like this could be abused though by players who directly wanted to team kill people with grenades and get away with it.

This is a brilliant idea! I've lost track of just many times I've been automatically kicked for tking because this problem. (OTOH, it is SO satisfying to wait to fire on someone in your crosshairs until he primes his grenade, then see him credited with three teamkills. :evilgrin: )

cough... and we're not considering the case when the enemy primed a demolition charge cough...
By the way I believe that a similar system, after its devlopment, is pretty likely to be used for satchels too. Opinions?
