Compact Grenade Launcher

(Redirected from Grenade Launcher (Compact))

Description[edit]

The Compact Grenade Launcher is one of the most common infantry support weapons with most infantry squads issued at least one. It is able to fire grenades over a much longer distance than can be thrown, and comes in two varieties: the first resembles a large pistol with an extendable shoulder stock, while the second is a simple tube and trigger block that can be mounted underneath the barrel of a rifle. However the compact version uses minigrenades which cannot be thrown by hand and holds only a single shot; reloading the weapon requires the breach to be physically opened before inserting a new round.[1]
