Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Grenade Launcher is perfect for destroying structures and delivering massive damage to targets with continuous fire, but it is difficult to use, as one needs to aim higher to compensate for the arc trajectory of the Grenades, which bounce on contact with any surface, making it difficult for the grenades to hit the target before exploding. It also has limited range due to the Grenades' fuse time.
  • Care should be taken when shooting the Grenade Launcher in small areas with an incline, as the Grenade will bounce and potentially hit the player with the Grenade Launcher.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Grenade Launcher is inspired by the Milkor MGL (Multiple Grenade Launcher), though with a very stubby attachment rail that also includes a grip.
  • It is possible to ride on the Grenade, which many people don't know about.
