Easter Launcher

During Easter, this weapon transforms into the Easter Egg Launcher. Though, it has not been brought back in Chapter 2 and the last time we've seen it was in Easter 2019. So it is unsure if it will ever be brought back or if it's stat has changed like the Snowball Launcher. It Is Available In The Team Rumble Unvaulted LTM. It Has The Same Stats As The Grenade Launcher.
