  • High damage 
  • Perfect when dealing large amount of enemies
  • Splash effect
  • Greatly reduce Kevlar

  • Single shot 
  • Does low damage in normal matches
  • No stun or knockback
  • Low reserve ammunition
  • Expensive
  • Cannot damage barriers (this also happened to all grenade launcher)
  • Grenade takes time to travel to target

Tips

  • In Zombie Mods, use M79 in ducts to deal damage to zombies before using the primary weapon. This will prevent zombies from healing.
  • Use M79 as emergency escape when surrounded by zombie hordes in Zombie Scenario. However, do take note of your health as its splash damage will hurt you.
  • In Zombie: The Mutation/Zombie: The Hero, make sure to pick up supply boxes to replenish your ammo supply, as this weapon has only 5 (6 in gold edition) grenades.

Trivia

  • The words "M79 SAW OFF" and the manufacturer logo can be seen on the weapon's barrel.
  • In earlier releases of M79 Saw off can hold up to 10 shells, this was later reduced to 5.
  • This weapon shares the same launcher crosshair with the SVDEX's secondary mode and M32 MGL.
  • In real-life, the grenade will not explode if the shooter fires it at close distances.
  • The M79 is the first break-action weapon introduced in the game.
  • In the game, M79's reload animation is not really a reload animation but it is merely a "delay animation", since the animation isn't repeated if switched out and then switched back in.
  • This is the first weapon which doesn't show the user reloading animation in third-person view. The second one is the Black Dragon Cannon.
  • This weapon deals high knockback when used with some melee weapon's bugs, however keep in mind the ban risk.
