We all know that Battlefield 2042 is a rubbish, broken, mess. There's really nothing to say about it except: go and play Halo Infinite, it's better in basically every way. For those of us who made the grave mistake of paying serious money for this utter piece of garbage, though, we want to find some way whereby we can have at least a little bit of fun on the game's massive, insanely empty maps.

What is the solution to this problem, I here you ask? Explosions. Explosions are the answer. What's a good way to produce explosions? Grenades. How can you make Grenades even more impressive? Grenade Launchers. Look, lot's of you are asking about how you can best use the Grenade Launcher in Battlefield 2042, and we have the answer for you right here. Let's dive in!

So what's the deal with the Grenade Launcher? Why are people asking about this weapon in particular? Well, the answer to that one is pretty simple: like most things in Battlefield 2042, the Grenade Launcher is pretty awful. That being said, though, it does launch grenades (as the name suggests), so it can be a bit of fun once you get used to it. What is it best against, though?

What is the Grenade Launcher Effective Against in Battlefield 2042?

The Grenade Launcher is best used against vehicle targets, or buildings that you want to blast. Now, remember that Battlefield 2042 is still... well... Battlefield 2042. What does this mean? It means that it is terrible. It means that it doesn't really have much destruction. With this in mind, using the Grenade Launcher against vehicles is your best bet, as it won't really do much to most buildings!

How Do You Use the Grenade Launcher in Battlefield 2042?

Console players need to press down on the D-Pad and PC players need to press "X" on their keyboard to take out and use the Under-barrel Grenade Launcher. This will pull out the Grenade Launcher, ready and set for blasting away those pesky tanks, and inflicting little-to-no damage on buildings. Exciting!

Now, you do need to remember that jumping into the game's settings will present you with a variety of options, including the ability to rebind your keys. Thus, if you are on PC, you can change the Grenade Launcher from "X" to a key that actually makes a little bit of sense. We're not sure what we would use, because we're busy blasting away on our PS5's, but let's be real: this is probably something that you're going to want to do! Alright, guys, that's all for now. Adios!
