Compact Grenade Launcher


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]
