Suggestion: Zombie grenades

    After three or four kills as a zombie in a round, the zombie gains a grenade. This allows three things:

    1. It gives zombies an incentive to play harder. It will make zombies more aggressive instead of zombies just standing around because they lost hope.

    2. It gives zombies a chance to knock down cades that are practically impossible to move at times.

    3. Brings challenge to humans and human dominated maps

    Is this possible?

      I like the idea of rewarding killing and receiving a form of ranged damage, I think grenades might be too harmful to cades though. Certainly there are some cades that can take a grenade or two, but I think the majority tend to fall to pieces with a properly placed grenade.

        If you were online during the zme testing, you could see that headcrab had this ability already there.

        I was. I liked it, but it's limited to the headcrab. If all zombies had a perk, it would allow all zombies to try harder.

        Maybe allow zombies to pick up dropped grenades?

        Maybe it'd be better to wait with this untill you see the final version of zme.

          Agree for the most part -- it could maybe work if there was a max nade limit for the whole zombie team, like 2-4 per round.

          Cool idea, I bet it would make for a really interesting game mechanic and definitely would favor zombies in those "impossible" scenarios.
