The Automatic Grenade Launcher is a new explosive weapon that can only be obtained by completing the second and final trial of the Hand Grenade Fest 3 (Event).
A combination of both the Grenade Launcher and the Winter Ghost Rifle, this weapon has excellent Agility, thus the best tactic with it is Run And Gun. Due to the projectiles' tendency to bounce very far, it is recommended to shoot at the ground, which will cause the projectiles to bounce off the ground and toward the enemy. Another recommended tactic is to shoot above the enemy's head since the projectiles have an arced trajectory. In addition, the player can shoot at walls to cause the projectiles to bounce toward the enemy.

- The Automatic Grenade Launcher is based on the Heckler & Koch XM-25 CDTE, an airburst grenade launcher that originated from the XM29 OICW (Objective Individual Combat Weapon) for the Objective Individual Combat Weapon program for the United States Army. The OICW program was cancelled and the weapon was split into two different weapons: the XM-25 CDTE, and the XM8 assault rifle.
- The Automatic Grenade Launcher model appears to have what is basically an oversized 30-round 5.56x45mm STANAG magazine, however the XM-25 in real life is incapable of firing 5.56x45mm cartridges and will only feed 25x40mm HE (high explosive) airburst grenades.
