To keep someone else from making a stupid decision similar to mine, DONT use smoke bombs that are left over from the 4th of July. Besides the usual safety reasons (fire), they smell make the area smell like bacon (I'm seriously not making this up), make it hard to breath, and take FOREVER to light without the possibility of them catching something on fire. Also, keep them away from kids (or your little brother) with asthma. :tup:

Most fields have banned the flame start smokes. I'm a fan of the big yellow canisters like you'd see used on a boat :tup: Worked great at OK D-Day

The firework stand smoke nades don't put out enough smoke anyway. The ones in the big orange cans are great. We used them at my private field and the smoke those things put out is incredible. lol. Whenever we use them I contact all the local fire and sheriffs depts.

Be careful. The smoke nades in the big orange can get very hot immediately after you light them. Found that out the hard way. lol. As soon as I pulled the pin it got hot causing me to drop it at my feet. My squad was engulfed by the smoke. The woods were completely filled with thick orange smoke. Took a few minutes for it to disapate enough to keep playing. Ahhh, good times, good times.

If we had went through the smoke we wouldv'e been mowed down like blind sheep. lol. We used the smoke to cover a retreat and flank move which worked pretty good after all that smoke cleared enough to see what we were shooting at. It's hard to breathe in that crap.

These are the smoke grenades we used at Skirmish for I.O.N. 09, they're cool burning and biodegradable. Also small enough to easily carry several, and pull ring ignition so no fiddling with matches and lighters, and less fire hazard. Even saw some guys playing catch with a lit one, just for fun I guess.

Tactical Smoke

I bought a whole bunch and brought them home to use at my field, they work pretty well.

Not a fan of smoke grenades myself. At least, not when used willy nilly. Only time I've played with them was when I went to OK D-day in '04. I was in the group attacking the beach. Some morons decided that a smoke screen was the way to get us past the road in the middle of the hill and into the trenches on the other side. Well, no. All it did was prevent us from shooting the Germans. They, however, simply blind fired into the smoke and pretty much obliterated anyone who tried to cross.

I guess I'm willing to give it a second chance if I can see it used effectively.

I didn't buy them. The guy that produced the scenerio at my field bought 6 of them and gave each general 3 of them. I was one of the generals. I kept one and gave two of them to other members of my team. I think he said he gave $6.00 each for them but that was a year ago and I don't remember exactly. When I lit it I remember thinking, " I THOUGHT THESE WERE CALLED COLD SMOKE!!!" lol.

I prefer using tear gas. Toss those through a window in a fort seems to work pretty well.

Before using smoke people should be aware what they want from i and how it is effective.

It is preferable to get the smoke as close as possible to being on top of your opposition. The in the small area of the cloud their view is obstructed leaving you a wide open area to move whilst their vision is obstructed or reduced. As stated if the smoke is put onto or just in front of an area this will draw the fire of the opposition.

Unless you can do it over a wide enough front like you see it used for at OK D-Day or other big games

i used a few smoke grenades last weekend, it was pretty muddy/wet out so all the refs would have to do EVEN IF it caught something on fire would be to just throw some mud at it.

if your trying to put up a smoke screen for cover, you should stop and figure out which way the wind is blowing.. unless if you plan on throwing a few at the same time..

before i tossed one i shouted "Emergency air drop on the way" and the other players on my team just started laughing...

good times..
