Hi everybody I have had an idea for destiny controls for using grenades so you can control where the grenades are thrown long version [spoiler]when you are sprinting or moving you can hold down the grenade bumper/trigger and you pull the pin out or you just hold it kinda like COD but then (here comes my brilliant idea) while you hold the grenade bumper/trigger down is allows you to take your thumb off the left stick and you will keep moving in that direction until you hit a wall and if you are sprinting you will keep sprinting until you run out of stamina but you will still be moving in that direction so while you hold the grenade bumper/trigger down you will still be moving which leaves your left thumb free on the D-Pad, The D-pad comes into this because when you are holding the grenade bumper/trigger The buttons on the D-Pad have a different use, to control where you will throw the grenade with-out looking where you want to throw it. Press up on the D-Pad to throw straight up so it will land in the same spot after you move away, press down on the D-Pad to throw over your head and press left or right to throw left or right, you get the idea. When you are sprinting you should not stop until you are out of stamina so you don't stop sprinting to pull out or throw a grenade but you can also use it while standing still and it would be very useful if you were running away and needed cover to get away while sprinting and you also shouldn't be able to use your gun while holding a grenade and if you wanted to use your gun you would have to throw the grenade first and if sprinting and you just pressed the grenade bumper/trigger you just throw a grenade forwards and you don't stop sprinting.[/spoiler] Short version [spoiler]you hold the grenade button like cod and press on the d-pad where you want it to go and you don't have to stop sprinting.[/spoiler] That is my awesome idea I hope you like it. vote yes if you think it is good vote no if not SniperHayden117 Out.

  • No offense but that sounds like one of the stupidest contolskeems i ever Heard of. Look controls should be simple so the user can react quickly, without needing to assess a handbook, needing to think about sprinting while throwing a grenade and pressing on the Dpad is confusing! Grenades are simple, pull pin and throw your can aim in all those directions on your own

  • D-pads already mapped to emotes and vehicle summons... [i]I think[/i]

    • Nope. I'm more comfortable with the traditional aim-and-throw system.

    • Maybe if you could just toss it behind you as you sprint

      • Destiiny's already included sprinting, aim down sights, etc. from CoD. So I don't see why they wouldn't also borrow the grenade throwing mechanics from CoD...

        • Or you could do a jump/spin combo, throw the grenade in mid air, in the direction you want it then spin full 360; all while not losing forward momentum.

        • I can see what you are trying to say, but for me personally I can't see myself doing that just for a grenade. I'm fairly certain we will have spells and weapons to do all that for us XD.

        • OK i'll make it simpler. you hold the grenade button like cod and press on the d-pad where you want it to go and you don't have to stop sprinting. so it'll be good for quick getaways and covering your escape.

        • That is an awesome concept, but I have to say no for one reason; It's too complex. I appreciate you implementing strategy into grenade throwing, but to a lot of players (including myself), turning in the direction you want to throw it is just simpler.
