A grenade launcher is the answer to pretty much every question when it comes to airsoft. Need to clear a room? Bumped into 4 enemies by accident? Enjoy launching 200 BBs at someone with effortless ease? Airsoft grenade launchers are your friend! They solve all these problems and more, so here’s our best airsoft grenade launchers!
Most airsoft grenade launchers are a riff on the M203 single shot, 40mm grenade launcher. Designed to be attached to a rifle barrel, the M203 provided a versatile ordinance option to a standard U.S M16 and M4 Carbine. Traditionally a situational weapon, a grenade isn’t effective in every scenario, but where it is, it shines. The M203 launcher solved this problem by offering a portable, easily to manage option to a rifle, which worked in many more situations.
Other grenade launchers are single, complete units. While bulkier than their under-slung counterparts, they have the accuracy advantage of sights and stocks.
Used as close fire support against point and area targets, they are best deployed against enemies in dead space that cannot be reached by direct fire. The typical tactic is to use suppressing fire to pin down the enemy, then finish them with a well-placed grenade.
Airsoft Grenade Launchers
In airsoft, grenade launchers serve a similar purpose. They provide a portable, situational option. Unlike exploding grenades, 40mm airsoft grenades spray hundreds of BBs out all at once.
How Airsoft Grenade Launchers Work
If you want to launch a grenade into a crowd and take them all out, you might have to think again. It’s not like you’re sending explosive shrapnel into people’s legs.
Think of 40mm grenade rounds like buckshot. Only on steroids. You load them like airsoft magazines and fill the reservoir with gas. Then load it into your launcher. All you need now is a victim…
When you pull the trigger, the grenade stays put, the reservoir is emptied and 200 BBs fly out of the barrel at high velocity towards your target.
