The M79 grenade launcher is a weapon in Fallout 76.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Grenade launcher
One of the earliest United States grenade launcher designs, built around the 40mm grenade. Utilizing the High-Low propulsion system, the M79 allows the operator to deliver high explosive rounds at a range of hundreds of meters, while its rugged design, consisting of just five major parts, a receiver, fore-end, barrel, sight and stock, offers excellent reliability. The one drawback is that the grenade launcher is single-shot only, reducing its rate of fire and precluding a sustained volume of fire. However, it is quite compact, especially with the stock sawed off, while the straightforward optics, consisting of a fixed blade sight on the front and a folding leaf sight on the rear, enable accurate fire with just pointing and shooting. These qualities kept it in use well into the late 21st century.[1][2]

CharacteristicsEdit

M79 expanded

A single shot, break-action, 40mm grenade launcher. When fired, the grenade is propelled in an arc, rather than laterally. Meaning it's best to aim at the ground of the target rather than at a target for more consistent hits.

Behind the scenesEdit

In an earlier patch, the M79 was considered both a shotgun and an explosive weapon. That meant that the M79 could benefit from both shotgun damage perks and the explosives damage perk cards. This has been corrected in subsequent patches.
