To load the CCGL, one simply pivots the foregrip to the side, moving a grenade into the barrel. Pulling the trigger results in the release of the grenade, which is designed to burst in midair and spread Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) over a mid-sized area.
The rounds utilized by the CCGL are aluminium grenades (2 inches in diameter) loaded with LN2. When fired, there is an approximately 2 second delay before the grenades burst, spreading the LN2 and various metal shards over anything caught in the blast radius. Each clip countains 15 grenades.
