The M79 grenade launcher is an explosive heavy gun in Fallout 76.

Background

Characteristics

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 below the target rather than directly at the target for more consistent hits.

Behind the scenes

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 patches 1.0.3.10[2] and 1.0.4.13.[3]
