BackgroundEdit

Developed in the late 1960s as a replacement for the M79 grenade launcher, the M203 mounts to the barrel of most M16 series rifles and carbines. In SOCOM, it can fire fragmentation, high explosive, or smoke grenades.

The M203PI model was designed to mount on platforms other than the M16, such as the AK-47, Steyr AUG, and MP5, but this version is unfortunately not featured in any SOCOM game.

AdvantagesEdit

  • Wide damage radius.

DisadvantagesEdit

  • Low rate of fire.
  • Ammunition can be scarce.
  • Can be difficult to aim unless one is familiar with the arching pattern that a grenade travels in when fired.
