NEWT MGL Notes, Tips, & Trivia
- Other notes, tips, and trivia go here
This actually does launch grenades in an arc, letting you hit targets behind cover - they detonate on impact. Slow projectile and a fairly small blast radius, and aiming is a bit odd at first (aiming high makes the round land closer to you), but cover will not protect your enemies. In short: niche as all hell, but VERY useful within that niche.
