  • Karakin exclusive.
  • Uncommon world spawn found across the map.
  • Guaranteed to be in every airdrop.
  • The Panzerfaust warhead explodes upon impact, but can also be blown up mid-air.
  • The damage radius is 6m from the point of impact.
  • The explosion can deal splash damage through thin walls and objects, up to a short distance.
  • Can be used to breach specific walls on Karakin, much like the Sticky Bomb.
  • The warhead will explode mid-air, before impact if damaged by explosions or shot by a bullet.
  • One time use.
  • Once the warhead is fired, the Panzerfaust tube will be discarded and cannot be picked back up.
  • Firing the warhead produces a backblast, so be careful.
  • The backblast damages those within a 3m zone behind the weapon.
  • Be careful you don’t have any teammates or a wall too close behind you.
  • Zeroing options at 60, 100 (default) and 150 meters.
