"One of the most explosive weapons featured in Crysis 2. Whether you're looking to set up an ambush, performing strategic rebound shots or just blasting your way through the crowd, the L-TAG is a weapon to be feared and respected!"
―In-game description

The Launcher – Tactical Airburst Grenades (L-TAG) is an advanced grenade launcher that is available for use in Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, in both the campaign and multiplayer.


The following text is taken from Weapon Focus section of the official Crysis website (now dead):


The L-TAG is an advanced grenade launcher developed by well-known Amim-Selbach Defense Corporation. Firing a variety of 60mm large-caliber smart grenades, the “Launcher – Tactical Airburst Grenades” has seen limited use as a tactical weapon with Special Forces.

Urban combat environments are the classic domain for indirect fire such as mortars and grenade launchers. The L-TAG provides increased capabilities by giving operators even more control over when and how a grenade should detonate. With the L-TAG you can bounce grenades around corners or deploy minefields with relative ease.

The extra technology contained within each smart grenade comes at a price however, increasing overall projectile weight and complexity while limiting the amount of explosive and propellant. This results in a reduced effective range compared to other systems. As a safety precaution and for increased tactical use, L-TAG grenades include a proximity sensor that can differentiate between friend and foe.[1]

There are no available attachments for the L-TAG.

  • The L-TAG is the only weapon that can hold not one, but two rounds "in the chamber".
  • While using the L-TAG in single player against C.E.L.L. units, they can be heard screaming "MGL!" This could have been the original name for the L-TAG in the game.
  • In spite of the "Airburst" function advertised in the name, this function was cut from the game at the last minute.
  • The L-TAG was inspired by the real life XM25 Airbust.
