Sorry @Scottyboy - Jumped off and watched some TV.
Spawned on the westside, got pretty well geared up (albeit, with no melee weapon for quite some time) - headed to the NW military area where I picked up a LOT of grenades.
Thought to myself, we pick these up but we never use them… and if we were in a situation where we had to use them, would we know how to?
So I played ‘killing fish with explosives’ - except the fish were zombies. and there was no water.
For those that don’t know. Select grenade in hand. Left click to pull pin out. Press G once to adopt over arm throwing pose. Hold left mouse to determine throwing strength. Left go. Bombs away.
First trial involved pressing G and then pressing G again, which dropped the grenade at my feet.
RUUUUUNNNNNN AWAYYYYYYYYY BOOM.
So, once that was firmly placed into memory - I trekked to a bigger military area to the south. Found a guy geared up running around. I was in the large 2 story white office/barrack build. Tried to throw a grenade at him through a window:
Lined him up. Pressed G. Assumed the position… aimed through the window… throw grenade… which bounces off the windows sill, then ceiling and lands at my feet.
Waiting for the bang… I remember I haven’t pulled the pin out. idiot.
Went back, did it again. properly this time. I hear him climbing up the ladder on to the roof. I retreat. I throw more grenades (I had about 5 or 6) - he must be shitting himself, they are LOUD
I wait a bit away from the building. He suddenly appeared climbing down the ladder. I shoot him. Sure I hit him. But no. Benny hill chase sequence ensures between all the doors of the building. Sometimes I’m shooting at him. Sometimes him at me. I run out of ammo - charge with pickaxe. He shoots and hits me… but runs out of bullets. I hit him. a zombie hits him.
I pass out.
Well. that was fun
