Smoake Grenades

Is there a way to just drop a smoke grenade at your feet without lob/roll and it will pop smoke?

Seems you cannot target yourself with a grenade. Might be worth a feature request in our tracker.

In a sense you can, you just "drop" it in the space next to whoever has it but expect it to "roll" sometimes.

One thing I've noticed is that when I toss smoke grenades is that no smoke will be in a square if a character is in the area of effect a lot of the time. This may just be a visual error but program actually has smoke effect for the square but not sure about that.

Smoke grenades are my new crack. I'd say its the most important weapon in your arsenal if you are just a starting out noob like me.

To warm an old thread up:

Please correct me if I'm wrong... I remember this was possible in XCOM: Enemy Unknown by 'pulling the grenades safety pin' and then placing it on the ground in the inventory menu. Would be a 'nice to have' feature in UFO:AI, but not a necessity.

Yesterday I used smokes for the first time (playing UFO:AI for a week now) after I read how useful they are. Well, they surprisingly are! I don't like the 'pop smoke, scout out, scout in, fire blindly through the smoke at spotted enemies' tactics. But for creating additional cover during critical situations, they are a great win!
