Trolled a good friend of mine yesterday. He went off to make a cuppa, came back to find red smoke around his character and then... KAPOW!


I felt happy with the outcome.

I agree with everyone. it is underused because it needs fixing.

as someone suggested it would be best if you could just select the person you want to bomb as an option as well as freethrowng it.

I have three stories.

first success was a war in front eclipse towers and I had been grief chased by two tanks and multiple players who wanted to ignore the tanks killing them and try to kill me.

I hid in micheals yard and tossed the flare at the bushes facing eclipse and then BOOM, one tank and 2 players dead.

2nd time I parachuted on top of a building that was overlooking a street based player spawn war and I jus chucked it into the middle of the street and killed 7 people and destroyed 3 PVs

my 3rd story was a common occurence when I had millions. if somene was chasing me (car or on foot) I would force them to chase me into a secluded area of alleys or corridors or streets.

basically anything that you just can't run/drive straightthrough. then when I'm slightly ahead I leave the flare so that when they reach my position 10 secnds later they are bombarded beyond recognition

I have 'tried' to use it quite a few times and the results were poor, I killed one person, ME! as I cowered behind a wall attempting to see if I actually got anyone with it, the shell hit me square on the back of the head.

I haven't used it since it's too expensive.

I swear you have like 5 seconds to throw the flare before the "jet" flies by. Pretty useless...

I threw one directly on my PV


Airstrike came, bombs dropped, did not hit the car at all, just everywhere surrounding it, stood on one, same result

I tried it a few times early on and realized it was pretty much useless. I wish calling that was the equivalent of calling in a predator on COD. At least then you'd have a chance of blowing the tank up.

Although they'd probably Nerf the predator drone and make it to where you have to call 5 in to destroy 1 tank.

Haha, you guys are awesome, just as soon I've lost my faith in humanity with these threads, one of these gems come up.

So many ideas on how to use flairs and just creatively grief randoms. Its wonderful.

Nope, tried quite a bit too mostly against tanks and people on rooftops while I'm at ground level, never a kill. Just 15k wasted back in the day or 8k now.

I have probably failed to get a kill about 8 out of 10 times. It usually works best when they are just camping out on the roof and don't have time to get off or climb down.

Just took a random on a date and threw one off the pier onto the beach for a fireworks display. I'd say I used it successfully. :)
