The FGL-40 Automatic Grenade Launcher is a weapon used in Crysis Warhead. It is used by the Korean People's Army, though none of the soldiers seem to use it ingame. It is a powerful support weapon which can rapidly launch grenades.

Description

FGL-40 is an automatic drum-fed grenade launcher. It can fire grenades at up to 80 rounds per minute, making it a devastating weapon. The FGL-40 has special crosshair, which allows the player to see the angle of the shot. By holding the fire button a marker is set on the location to be bombarded, and a target is displayed on the HUD. If the crosshairs are aligned with this target when the fire key is released the grenade will fall on-target. It has remotely controlled grenades that will detonate when the aim command is clicked. It can only equip the Flashlight attachment, although can be modified to be compatible with the Laser Pointer.

Advantages

The FGL-40 has a high rate of fire and inflicts heavy damage. It can destroy most light vehicles as well as multiple KPA soldiers with a single shell. The grenade shells are also powerful enough to damage the light armor of ASV's.

Disadvantages

The FGL-40 has a relatively short range, much shorter than Grenade Launcher attachment, due to its projectiles low speed (about half of the attachment's speed). Its speed is even lower with remotely controlled grenades, potentially exposing the user to enemy fire. It also reloads very slowly if every ammo is used before reloading. Therefore, it is advised to reload after every 1-2 shots.

Trivia

  • Psycho is the only character that ever used this weapon.
  • The FGL-40 is presumably of US manufacturing, as it is gray colored, opposed to the camo/brown pattern used by the KPA.
  • The FGL-40's design is based on the Milkor MGL Grenade Launcher.
