Junkrat's Frag Launcher lobs grenades a significant distance. They bounce to reach their destination, and blow up when they strike an enemy.
Default Key: (PC LMB, PS R2, XB RT)


Junkrat launches a grenade which deals 130 damage for a direct hit and up to 80 splash damage. The grenades will explode instantly upon contact with an enemy or other damageable objects. If they do not hit an enemy, they will bounce up to 2 times before exploding on the third contact. Bombs will still explode on contact with enemies after they have bounced.


  • The Frag Launcher uses compact fragmentation grenades that are homemade, classified as rack-loaded ammunition.[1]
