Hollow charge anti-tank rifle grenades were particularly in vogue from 1939 to 1943. German rifle grenade launching systems included both a spigot type in which the grenade was mounted over a prong, and a Schiessbecher or cup discharger. Initially the 3cm diameter of the discharger was something of a limiting factor, with the Gewehrpanzergranate of 1941, for example, only able to achieve an armour penetration of 30mm. In later models more powerful bulbousheaded missiles overhung the end of the cup.

On night patrols they had the unexpected benefit that they could be mistaken for tanks.
