The Tek Grenade Launcher is a Weapon in the Expansion Pack Genesis: Part 1.


Tek Grenade Launcher launches grenades at ranges farther than how the grenade would be thrown. The grenades used to launch must be in the survivor's inventory to utilize it.

The following grenades can be used to launch:

Moeder must be defeated on Alpha difficulty to obtain the tekgram.

Press Melee button (default Ctrl) to configure ammo type for each slot, attachment (default N or double R) for toggle impact-explosion (with an icon of Alpha Aberrant Ascension Implant).



  • Although almost every other weapon and armor in the Tek Tier does not require element to repair, the Tek Grenade Launcher does in fact require element to repair, making it quite expensive to repair. This may not be intended.
  • While learning the tekgram is required to both craft and wield it, you do not need the tekgram to utilize it in the gauntlet mission "Built Fjord Tough"
  • The Tek Grenade Launcher can be set to either timed or impact detonations, making it the only way to use timed grenades, such as the tek grenade, as impact grenades.
  • A 296.6% crafted Tek Grenade Launcher with a tek grenade can deal a whopping 2,743 damage per grenade to creatures with no armor.
