Grenade Launcher: Traits & Tips

Grenade Launcher: Weapon Traits

Heavy Structure / Building Damage

The Grenade Launcher dishes out an insane amount of damage to enemy forts. They can topple structures with just a couple of shots.

3-4 Second Detonation Time

Grenades detonate in 3-4 seconds when shot from a Grenade Launcher. Take this in consideration when in the middle of combat.

Difficult To Aim Due To Grenade Trajectory

With this weapon, aiming can be hard. Knowledge & effective implementation of the weapon's grenade arc trajectory is needed to smartly use this weapon.

Hard To Find

Grenade Launchers can be found on the floor, treasure chests, and vending machines but come in Rare, Epic, & Legendary, making them rare to find in-game.

Grenade Launcher: Weapon Tips

Always aim above enemy buildings

Aim up and shoot above the roofs of enemy forts instead of its walls. Your grenades will land inside the fort to deal massive damage to walls and surrounding enemy players.

Keep grenade trajectory in mind

Grenades launched travel in an arc trajectory. Keep this in mind and you'll avoid having grenades ricocheting and causing self-damage.

Not advisable for close range

Grenade Launchers work best in mid-range combat. It is not advisable to use this weapon when encountering enemies in close range due to possible splash damage & detonation time.
