The M79 Grenade Launcher is a grenade launcher featured in The Last Stand: Union City.

DescriptionEdit

Break action grenade launcher.

BackgroundEdit

Styled like a break-action shotgun, the M79 bridged the gap between hand grenades and mortars, and saw service during the Vietnam War before the advent of more practical under-barrel designs. Due to its great effective range, however, a few armies still use it in niche roles, such as bomb disposal and riot control.

Equipped in limited numbers by the military.

How to obtainEdit

TacticsEdit

The grenade launched from this weapon travels at a slight arc and will not detonate until it travels a certain distance, meaning it is best used in open areas. While the arming distance safety protects the user from being killed by their own weapon, it also makes it useless at close range. Another drawback is that its ammo is hard to find, so it should only be used sparingly on large groups.

ProsEdit

  • Brutal Damage
  • Good AOE[n 1]
  • Very Accurate
  • Safe Arming Distance
  • Can penetrate armor
  • Reloads Quickly

ConsEdit

  • Single-Shot
  • Useless at close range
  • Scarce Ammo Type
  • Rare

TriviaEdit

  • There is a Damaged version present, but as of version 1.3, there are no stat differences. The same applies for all other explosive weapons in the game.
  • It is fairly common for the grenade to hit the enemy and not explode, nor even deal damage. However, if fired at the floor or a wall, it will explode normally.
