Destroying Doors
I just got this game, and I've been really enjoying it - so many weapons & equipment to choose from ! I am a bit confused about one thing - I've come across some locked doors early on that my Engineer can't open with the lockpicks (even with the early boosted skill). No problem, I'll just have him chuck a stick of dynamite at the door. Hmmm ... 2 sticks of dynamite and the door still stands. Ok, maybe the dynamite's a dud - so I chuck a grenade at it. Resounding explosions and a nice black char effect but the doors still there.

Ok, allowed it the 5 lockpicks but not planning to waste the explosives, so I reload and try simply shooting at the door with a subMG, figuring this probably won't work either, but the reloaded, unexploded door falls easily to the bulletfire.

Shouldn't a door that'll cave to a few subMG rounds also disintegrate to a grenade blast or a stick of TNT? I realize some of the grenades are more effective at fragging people, but this has me scratching my head just a little bit ! Any advice would be appreciated. :)

Some grenades actually have such a weak blast radious, however the best way to blow open a door is to rig a grenade to it as a trap, then shoot it once with any weapon from a distance, vaporizes the door easily, just make sure to use a very weak grenade if you dont want to have a massive hole in the floor were the door was.

I forgot all about being able to rig the grenade - I'll have to give that a try one of these times - now mostly I just shoot 'em down with SMG or MG fire, hehehe ... thanks for the tip :)

Well, when you rig a grenade to every exit in a building, all the AI will usually crowd around one exit once they start hearing you, you can shoot the window/door they crowd around for some extra explosive damage, and if you have an engineer with always critical explosives plant it then huzzah for the extra bonus their.

that is assuming they SEE the trap.
