The 40mm Grenade is a fragmentation weapon designed to be launched from a purpose-built grenade launcher or an underslung attachment.
It inflicts damage similar to a Hand Grenade, but is launched faster and further than a hand grenade can be thrown. It can be fatal to infantry, causes serious damage to light armored vehicles, but inflicts only minor damage to heavier armor.
In all games where it appears, 40mm grenade launchers are assigned to the Assault kit.
