Not to be confused with the M82, a heavy sniper rifle.


Basics Edit

The M79 is a relatively cheap grenade launcher. It is essentially a weaker RPG-7, doing less damage but carrying more ammo. It costs $45,000 to buy and is paired with the melee weapons in the Shop.

Strategies Edit

  • As with all explosive weapons, aim in the center of large crowds for maximum damage.
  • The M79 is a great early-game weapon, being able to easily kill large crowds of zombies on early waves. The cash it earns can easily set the player up for the Minigun or the Laser Minigun.

Trivia Edit

  • The M79 was added in Version 1.8 of the game.
  • The M79's model is ripped directly from the Grenade Launcher in Left 4 Dead 2.
