Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Grenade launcher

The automatic grenade launcher (sometimes referred to as a grenade machinegun), is a belt-fed, blowback-operated, air-cooled automatic weapon designed to lay down a heavy volume of explosive ordnance and support infantry and vehicle operations. Designed for use as a crew-served weapon, the automatic grenade launcher was intended for use against a variety of targets ranging from infantry and light vehicles to fortifications and other materiel. The sheer weight of the weapon and bulk of the ammunition limited its versatility, until the advent of power armor. Since then, many units were converted for use on foot, rather than from a tripod.[1]

U.S. automatic grenade launchers were manufactured in two major variants, accepting 25mm and 40mm grenades, together with a variety of additional equipment, such as an electronic fire control system.[2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Auto grenade launcher expanded

The auto grenade launcher is a powerful, automatic explosive weapon firing belt-fed 40mm grenades. Delivering a high volume of explosive ordnance at the range, it's difficult to ignore, especially when taking into account the damage bonus from the right perk cards (it does not benefit from Heavy Gunner).
