Strategy

It has a good (depending on the level) damage, a decent rate of fire, and low capacity.

Tips

  • When firing, the grenade is shot in an arc, so aim high above the enemy's head when firing at medium to long range.
  • Use it against a cluster of enemies to take advantage of its area damage.
  • You can use this weapon to Rocket Jump, however, it is not recommended due to the low ammo capacity.
  • Make your shots count and be effective as they can as there aren't very many grenades it can hold.
  • It is ideal for mowing down heavily-armored enemies.
  • Aim at the ground near the enemy to ensure that it will hit them unless they tend to jump and move a lot.
  • Due to the low damage, it is recommended to use this in the lowest bracket, unless it is a higher leveled weapon (such as it being a lvl 55 weapon, for example).

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Move around the user to avoid getting inside the blast radius.
  • Rocket jump to a decent sniping spot with a roof because this weapon is heavily affected by gravity.
  • Attack its users from behind.

Changelog

5.3.0

  • The Grenade Launcher is added into the game.

8.1.0

  • This weapon was formerly the first form of the Firestorm G2 (removed), however, as of this update, they were separated and made into individual weapons.

12.5.0

  • The Grenade Launcher is removed from the Lucky Chest.

12.6.0

  • Upgrades get added for this weapon.

Trivia

  • It is based off the real world M79 grenade launcher.
  • This, the Apocalypse (and its upgrades), the Signal Pistol, the Firestarter, bows, spells, and the Easter Bazooka (and its upgrades) are the only weapons that have a capacity of 1. The Ghost Lantern and the Laser Spear also technically have 1 capacity, despite their stats.
  • If fully-maxed (being lvl 55), it takes two or three shots to kill a fully-armored enemy.
  • Like the Firestarter the reload sound is similar to the M203 underbarrel grenade launcher sound in Call of Duty 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and 3.
