The Underbarrel Grenade Launcher is a Rail Attachment available to Select Fire weapons, Battle Rifles, and the NSX Yumi. The Grenade Launcher is loaded with 1 grenade, with 2 in reserve. The reserve cannot be increased using the Grenade Bandolier or Ammunition Belt, however can be resupplied at an Engineer's Ammunition Package.

Grenades fired from the Underbarrel Grenade Launcher are less potent than standard Frag Grenades, with a significantly lower maximum indirect damage, however carrying the advantage of being able to damage infantry on direct hit.

On direct hits, the Grenade will deal 500 damage and explode dealing 700 indirect damage, unless the target is within 10 meters, at which point the Grenade will become a dud and not explode, only dealing 500 direct damage to the target. The explosion deals 700 damage before 0.1 meters and 50 after 5 meters.

Each faction's Underbarrel Grenade Launcher is visually distinct, however they are all functionally identical.

To use an underbarrel attachment, press the Gear Slot 1 hotkey (1 by default) whilst the attached weapon is equipped.
