It's just too to easy to pick up any piece of junk, yell grenade to force people out of the hiding places and then shoot them.
Buy a real grenade or make one
If you respond to a false threat.. and move from your position.. you deserve to be shot.
it's exactly the same as not permitting feints in a boxing match.. the purpose of the feint is to draw someone out of their guard to respond to an action that is not a threat so that a real attack may now be launched to the exposed area. Perfectly legitimate and valid combative technique.
