Arc stars are my throw-able of choice. They stick, good blast radius and stun if they land close enough.

 

Thermite's ok as a CC but it's damage is poor.

 

Grenades I use if there is nothing else, but I always prefer the arc star for it's sticking capabilities.

The only thing I would suggest is the ability to throw a flatter trejectory when you want to. I've had the occasion where I needed to throw a grenade through openings and a more flatter throw would have been great. Like, use the ADS function to flatten the throw. Also maybe a roll throw also, when you want to sneek up on unsuspecting victims.

 

I like the idea of a throwable bag as a pickup item.

Arc stars are fine but bouncing off gil arm shield is ridiculous and unfair.
Normal granades should be cookable, altho i have seen people who magically can.
And thermites should in no way work through a closed door, but do..

Bouncing off his passive shield makes it act the same as his tactical, and the same as Lifeline's drone shield......?

 

The "magical" cookoff is tossing a very high arc......grenade time starts from the throw, not the landing.....
