    This is the thread for discussion and idea finding for the new Northern Faction Concussion Grenade. Keep this civil and stick with the current style of Empires. Anyone working on this or wanting to pitch constructive ideas may post here.

    Thats kinda hard really.

    For homemade chemistry, the closest thing that fits the bil would be a bottle containing magnesium powder with water around it. It doesnt really make a boom (not that i remember and its not like the empires concs are loud to begin with), but it should burn some eyes.

    See the thing is, if youre going with magnesium, you cant have it be encased in steel casing, its not an explosive and it burns really fast, it would need to be contained in something fragile like a glass bottle, that would mix the contents upon impact.

    I can only think of a Molotov, but emp instead.
    Like some kind of soluble that conducts electricity, and you light it and throw.

    Edit: Wait fuck that

    A chaff grenade.

    Lol

    I believe in empires, soldiers are not drones and have pretty natural eyes that are unaffected by electromagnetic pulses. They also dont literally see their own status.

    Read the lore.
    Remember this game coded on a bar napkin, don't expect the lore to make sense either.

    Be soldiers have nanomachines. Healing, stress control, weapon Id lock etc.
    Thats not the same as having implanted cyber eyes.

    I am telling you, there is some kind of interface people have which displays the hud.

    I swear to god its somewhere in there. Im not crazy.

    We need daddy Krenzo to make sense of this fanfiction/deviant art tier lore at some point.

    Apart from the fact that Megel pretty much only did NF. Now please get back to topic.

    Okay candles managed to figure this out for me.

    Combine a chaff grenade with a flash grenade.
    And use that as a the base idea for BE and NF.

    So you got this duct taped shitty piece of shit looking thing and here you got this modern marvel of explosives.
    Here is my conceptual definition for the concussion grenades.

    Two things taped together, and the other being one looking awesome.

    So a bottle of magnesium and water taped together with a bottle of tin foil scraps and a small explosive.

    Lol that sounds so fucking stupid yet so awesome.

    Or we could give NF proper looking grenades.
    NF use WW2 level tech, doesn't mean it has to look all guerilla.
    They have fucking trenchcrosser tanks, I think they can probably mass produce explosive devices.

    They are using old tech and scavenged parts right?
    Why wouldn't they just tape two grenades together?

    Like you can have this and they can look cool, it just depends on job of the modeler.
    This would probably be the first weapon that looks this ghetto.

    Bigteef,i see alot of weapon references in NF.

    Most notable is the heavy rifle being a FG42.

    This thread is about a grenade.

    Not a gun.

    The same principle of materials and manufacturing methods at hand applies to both of them though.
