"Spread Christmas cheer throughout the air! That is, if your idea of Christmas spirit is a small explosion."


The X-Mas Launcher can be considered quite gimmicky - while it does kill most zombies with a single launch of a present, they usually have to be right next to the present, similar to the M202. While it's not the most useful weapon, it's still fun to play around with. Consider this a cool collectable and not much else.

Background Story

Along with certain other festive items like the Bell, the X-Mas Launcher was created to spread some holiday cheer in dark times. On Christmas Day, a certain collectable was opened by hundreds of survivors and out popped this - firing presents that carried grenades. It was found to be not of much use, but still pretty fun to play around with.

A few survivors stated, "There should've been Pipebombs in the presents instead."


  • While it may be weaker than the M202, since there is a delay between it exploding on impact on the ground, there is less risk of suicide.
    • The presents explode after about 3 seconds. Make sure to time your shots.
  • The X-Mas Launcher has the capability of dealing up to 300 damage, depending how close you are to the present.
    • As such, with a good shot, the X-Mas Launcher has the capacity to kill or severely weaken anyone in Free For All.
  • Similar to the M202, you can't rocket jump with it.
  • Since this weapon is not banned in Free For All, it may be a good idea to use it on FFA rounds, but it won't kill through walls.
    • Newer players may not recognise the threat of the X-Mas Launcher and may die in the explosion.
    • It can also force somebody out of their camping spot.
  • To protect yourself from a trigger-finger from using melees, you may want to equip this first to slowly ease yourself back into explosive secondaries.
