Toss Back is a Tier 3 perk in Call of Duty: World at War multiplayer that gives a player the ability to reset the fuse of a thrown grenade to two and a half seconds, regardless of how long the grenade was cooked. The moment a player with the Toss Back perk picks up a grenade, the grenade timer is reset. This perk is unlocked at level 6.
This perk can be used well to counter grenades, specifically cooked-off grenades. It is also useful in Headquarters and War for players who are capturing the flag or HQ and don't want to be killed by incoming grenades.
This perk is vital in completing challenges which involve throwing back grenades. Keep in mind to pick up the grenade as it hits the ground, as some players, particularly experienced players, will cook the grenade to nearly the maximum time limit so as to make it explode as soon as it reaches the ground.
This perk may seem underused at times but is a great perk if used correctly. When in maps such as Makin or Makin Day, there may be a large building or vantage point used for sniping. Using Bouncing Betties on the entrances is useful, but when other players learn of the player's presence, they will attempt to throw a grenade into the building the player is in in an attempt to flush the player out. With this perk the player would be able to reset the fuse and throw it away or at another player, which would leave the player alive for the encounter with the original thrower.
- In Call of Duty: Black Ops, one of the pro version's effects of Flak Jacket is identical to this perk.
