"Designed for SOCOM. Default chambered for standard NATO 7.62mm rounds. Capable of both semi-auto and automatic fire. The standard EGLM 40mm grenade launcher and you can deliver a lot of damage to a variety of targets."
— In-game description
The SFAR-M GL is an assault rifle featured in Battlefield 2042. It alone is equipped with an Mk 13 40mm grenade launcher, with up to four ammunition types available. (The FB GP is used on all other underbarrel-capable weapons.) No other underbarrel attachments are available as the EGLM is always equipped.
The "Factory Mounts" 40mm Grenade is equipped by default, although the game does not describe whether HE or frag ammo is used.
Along with the NTW-50 anti-materiel rifle, its progression counts vehicles destroyed along with kills, primarily earned through its grenade launcher. It is one of three weapons that can also carry 40mm AP grenades, alongside the LCMG and SVK.
