As I was playing some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
multiplayer today, I saw a lot of folks running around with the javelin on hand. Every time I was up close and killed one of these guys, I would die to. Well, now I know why
. It seems that there's a glitch in the game whereby equipping the javelin and performing a grenade throw and weapon switch, you're now a "suicide bomber" whereby any death will cause you to explode taking out anyone nearby. Yeah, not very fun and I hope this gets fixed soon.
-Update- It seems that Xbox 360 users who get caught using this will get a banning
