No no no. You don't run in - you throw them in from the doorway. You aim up above their heads to get maximum distance on your throw, you strafe the doorway, and you throw it in the middle of that. If you use AP Mines, no further action is necessary; it'll arm, then detonate as soon as someone (inevitably) crosses their path; even if someone shoots it, it'll probably hit someone. C4, obviously you have to detonate it yourself, but that's trivial. For suicide runs, stick to AP Mines, since if you get killed with C4 it's useless. Two words: Reverse Psychology. As you said, if you do smoke or stun, defenders will start firing. If you throw AV Grenades (or any kind of grenade, for that matter, short of healing/rez ones), they'll scatter. But AP Mines or C4 give no such warnings, and in a crowded room, might not even be noticed in a noisy firefight... hmm..... What you're describing are pilots who fly around in "god chariots," not MAX suit users. "Skillsuit" MAX users are the ones who think they're Rambo - and thus end up dead. No sir, the smart MAX players stick with close support, and it's that support that lets them keep on killing.
