The '''M18 Recoilless Rifle''' must be reloaded after each shot, a process taking about 8 seconds. Since there are normally two such launchers per Airborne Squad, damage output is still high regardless, with one warhead per every 4 seconds on average. This can bring down an enemy vehicle rather rapidly, assuming the Airborne Squad can maintain its firing position long enough, and is close enough to hit with each shot.

The maximum range of the '''M18 Recoilless Rifle''' is 35 meters. The recoilless rifle is unique in that it has very low scatter. What this means is that all shots fired will have very little deviation. If the game rolls a miss, the very low scatter will mean that the fired round is still on a collision course with its intended target, causing a hit despite the game rolling a miss. This translates to the recoilless rifle having very high accuracy against all tanks in the game, even at maximum range. This does not apply to light vehicles like pumas or armored cars, which lack hitboxes and cannot function as targets for missed shots.

The maximum range of the '''M18 Recoilless Rifle''' is 35 meters. Again, at this range it is very ineffective, so it is always recommended to get as close as possible to the target.
   
 
{{Note}} When an infantryman holding an '''M18 Recoilless Rifle''' is killed, and there is no other squad-member available to pick the weapon up, there is a 40% chance of the weapon being dropped and becoming abandoned. Other infantry squads (friendly or enemy) can pick this weapon up if they have at least 2 Open Weapon Slots.
