Although I approve of grenade scattering in theory, the current practice leaves much to be desired. Grenade scatter with the launcher is so bad that I’ve stopped using grenade launchers entirely unless a soldier has accuracy perks —it’s just not worth the wasted shot and movement.
There should be two categories of scatter: one for when the target is out of LOS, and the other for when you can see what you’re aiming at. Bad scatter is fine in the first circumstance, but not the second. And in no circumstance should a soldier launch a grenade into the wall in front of him/her — that’s just a level of stupidity that is not fitting for the elite soldiers of Phoenix Point. The shot should just be prohibited. The argument that we, as players, should make that judgment is unreasonable given the imperfect modeling of the space actually occupied by terrain.
