The Proximity Grenade Launcher’s description says, “It’s not a horseshoe or a hand grenade, but close still counts!” And it really is a weapon that does not require much precision. Players just need to fire in the general direction of the enemies for it to explode when it detects a player near it. Which means that it will cause damage even without having to aim directly at the enemy.
