Another reason to invest in jamming equipment.

These things use RF to set the fuze within a few meters of the muzzle.  Good luck jamming that.

The fun would be finding the jammer frequency that sets the grenade off immediately, ideally while still in the solder's bandoleer.

Don't most 40 mm grenade launcher projectiles have to go  a certain distance before they will arm?

Yup, the new ones can arm within a couple metres but it can be up to 15 metres. I know the most recent ones also have self destructs.
