Data Sources
Census API source: Underbarrel Smoke Launcher API Data?

The Underbarrel Smoke Launcher is a Rail Attachment available to Select Fire weapons, Battle Rifles, and the NSX Yumi. The Smoke 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 Smoke Launcher function similarly to those fired from the Underbarrel Grenade Launcher. They deal slightly less damage, but have the same ballistic trajectory. Smoke Grenades launched from this attachment will also fail to arm if they do not travel at least 15 meters.

Unlike Grenades from the Underbarrel Grenade Launcher, Smoke Grenades fired from the Smoke Launcher will not deal explosive damage, nor will their damage potential increase when they have armed.

The Smoke Screen caused by the Underbarrel Grenade Launcher is inferior to the standard Smoke Grenade, lasting less time and producing a smaller shroud, however detonates on impact and is capable of dealing damage.

Each faction's Underbarrel Smoke 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.

  • Players who have lower particle display settings will not see the smoke screen while close up (within 40 meters), giving them an advantage over higher particle display settings. All players will see the smoke screen from far away, regardless of settings.
