    Really good paper on why jumping into the pool is a much worse idea than the pool deck:

    In a situation where a grenade is thrown at you the idea isn't to lay away from the blast it's to lay toward the blast with your helmet facing the explosion with your arms and hands tucked under you with your weapon. The reason behind this is because the helmet is designed to deflect projectiles. But either way the kill zone for a grenade not only includes the shrapnel but the pressure wave caused by the blast. Part of this is right the other part is wrong. The kill distance is 5 meters so regardless of what you do if your 15 feet away youre dead while around 30-35 feet your still going to be on a one way ticket to destination fucked. Either the shrapnel or the concussion wave will effect you and if you do as these guys say and lay facing away your more and over gonna die. Just don't be in a situation where your getting nades thrown at you

    Jumping in the pool is safer you idiots...youre not dying from the blast of a grenade (it doesn't have enough concussion) you're damage is from the shrapnel. So u said 15ft away and shrapnel won't kill you under water from 15 ft...
    I guess I'm smarter than you kids.

    bruh just jump in the pool head sticking out of the water barely just enough so it isnt in line with the shrapnel on land

  • Tyler Dickey
    Tyler Dickey 2 дня назад

    The blast from an explosion is called a shock wave incase yall wanted to know, and a big enough shockwave can do to you on land what a smaller shockwave can do to you underwater, so don't think it's safe to be near one it can kill you on land too just it's easier underwater like he said

    Your assumption of how the shrapnel spreads is off. Any shrapnel that hits the concrete at an angle will follow the plane of the ground. You might be much better off taking the time it takes to dive on the ground to continue to run.

    It's not called a handle it's called a spoon, and it's a fragment not a bullet or a chunk. As for the diagram used to show most survivable position, it's correct, but close your legs don't want shrapnel tearing up your fun time parts.

    So, in theory, you would be safer if you intentionally started drowning yourself momentarily as the grenade explodes
