i've seen people throwing c4 and blowing it up within seconds, but when i throw-rightclick-leftclick, i throw another c4 and mess up everything

is there a special way to do it?

throw 4 C4 once you spawn. Then when you throw the nest one the detonator is ready within a fraction of a second. If you have 1 C4 left and rapidly click the left mouse button it will detonate quite fast.

No, you just gotta learn to time it. I do it all the time.

He was complaining about changing to detonater then having it throw another C4, which i know tons of people have happen to them. For me it even happens sometimes when i throw, right click, wait 5 seconds, left click. It's obviously a glitch. Washow mentioned this point exactly, it has little to do with timing because the detonator is clearly out when you left click. The sure fire way to avoid this is to have no more C4 for it to throw out.

This is true. Just practise it for few rounds and you should get it.

It would work much better if they sticked that damn detonator in the left hand so we wouldn't need to switch at all...
I think it's all about the tiny lag when playing online, just try it in singleplayer or make your own LAN server and they work wonderfully...

Yeah I've noticed this as well, it only fucks up once in a while. But the fact remains, it happens to many people. Even when going slow with C4 it is still possible to throw another C4 when your detonator is out.

Exactly!  I've noticed this on single player and couldnt figure out the lag on multi-player.  It's all about timing.

Forgot to say in my first post:
The problem is that when you switch to detonator but it doesn't switch (because of lag) you press again and then it switches back to C4. You can go around the problem by just remembering to only press the button once even if it doensn't switch right away.

the throw-rightclick-leftclick thing works for me, you have to do it as soon as the c4 hits the ground i think. often it doesn't even switch to the detonator but the c4 still edxplodes anyway.

I actually think the C4 needs a longer detonation timer.  its supposted to be used as a trap, not a close combat, instakill, huge splash weapon.

C4 is'nt realy a suitable close range weapon, unless it's a last resort. Use some grenades for clase range combat if your looking to do some explosivce damage to ground units, this is unless you mean for taking out armored VeHICKLES.

And that is totally out of point.

I've seen ppl detonate c4 while the c4 is still in the air. i tried it and the first one i throw almost never blows up in the air.

Ok then lasses the simplist way to do it is set a C4 key, press the key once then it will send out a C4 press the key again for remote and as soon as it changes to C4 press the key one last time and kaboom you have urself a successful kill good luck soldiers

A few of us know how to do it. The problem is that a few of us don't want to share the techniqe. I'm not in a big hurry to join a server where 80% of the players are chucking C4. One or two of them does't bother me. Don't ask, don't tell.
