Grenade Question

#1 Postby KhyberJoe » Wed Dec 11, 2013 11:23 am

We played a large and long game of Starship Troopers last weekend (my 50th birthday party) and ran into a few interesting situations.

How high can a grenade be thrown?

A trooper wanted to dislodge a Skinnie from a third floor perch in a destroyed building with a grenade but had to get it over some intervening wall as well as get it up there. It looked like he had to toss it on a very high parabolic path (about 50') to get it over the building wall. Laterally, it would have been a bit more than 30 feet.

Even in power armor, this may have been a stretch.

I'd probably go with a simple half of its horizontal Long Range to get vertical range, which easily enough should be the same as its Medium Range.
