S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki

The M203 Grenade, also known as M209 Grenade, is a type of grenade launcher shell ammunition featured in all three S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.


Shadow of Chernobyl[]

A grenade for the ?203 grenade launcher (for the TRs 301, GP 37, SGI 5k, IL 86 rifles) and the integrated grenade launcher of the FT 200M.

In-game description

These grenades can be found in several stashes in the Red Forest, and Freedom will commonly reward the player with M209 grenades after completing missions. If the player becomes friends with Freedom, Skinflint may have them for sale. There is also five in a stash along with a TRs 301 assault rifle and a M203 grenade launcher in the Wild Territory. They do not differ from the VOG-25 Grenade in any way, except that the VOG-25 has another variant.

It is compatible with the M203 grenade launcher itself along with the integral launcher of the FT-200M. The Bulldog 6 m209 variant was supposed to be able to use M209 grenades, but it was cut from the final version.

It can be retrieved from the following stashes:

Clear Sky[]

Grenade used with the M203 under-barrel grenade launcher and the FT 200M integrated grenade launcher.

In-game description

Quite a few stashes in the Dark Valley contain M209 grenades, and it is possible for Ashot to have them in stock without the player siding with Freedom. Stalkers that use rifles with attached grenade launchers may also drop some of them.


Call of Pripyat[]

40 mm grenade for the M203 underbarrel grenade launcher. This round has a 5 meter kill zone. Also suitable for use in the FT-200M integrated grenade launcher.

In-game description.

In Call of Pripyat they are known as M203 grenades. Owl will have M203 grenades available if the player heavily sides with either Bandits or Loners throughout the campaign. Hawaiian will offer them if the player sides with Freedom.
