About[edit | edit source]
The 40mm Portable Grenade Launcher is the default secondary weapon for the Engineer. It launches powerful grenades that travel in an arc and normally explodes on contact with any surface; however, it can also be upgraded to bounce off walls, exploding once they come into contact with enemies.
Modifications[edit | edit source]
There are five tiers and each tier has two to three upgrades, only one upgrade can be equipped per tier.
Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]
Incendiary Compound[edit | edit source]
Incendiary Compound is unique in that it causes the weapon to lose 50% in both Direct and Area Damage; unlike the "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun's Hot Bullets and Jury-Rigged Boomstick's White Phosphorous Shells. In replace of the lost damage, the grenade shells will instantly ignite enemies.
Proximity Trigger[edit | edit source]
Proximity Trigger changes the projectiles of the PGL so that it does not explode on contact. Instead, it will bounce off surfaces and preserve velocity. When the grenade is close to an enemy it will automatically detonate. The trigger radius is based on the explosion radius, therefore a larger radius will cause the grenade to be more volatile. There is a very brief period of time directly after being fired in which the grenade cannot be triggered. If the grenade is not triggered within 3 seconds of being fired, it will automatically explode. The scaling damage of this upgrade is currently bugged.
