Is it just me or have the grenades been heavily nerfed since BB4? Not just in damage but coverage too.
In BB4, granades could and would damage aliens slightly outside the explosion radius. In BB5 they quite often lack damaging aliens within the explosion radius.
I have had several times, from the Firecat launcher, getting several aliens within the radius and show the health bar damage but when the nade lands, all the aliens on the edge of the clipping receive no damage.
If they were behind cover, or even had the shield facing the explosion I could agree with it. The last few have had crab men and even fire worms in the open, with no cover and nothing happens to them. It gets quite frustrating when you cannot trust the damage the GUI is promising.
You line up a shot so it is just clipping 2 fresh crab men and killing one closest to you… only to have it only damage the furthest one away and the other 2 are left untouched, to come and kill you on the next turn.
