The Grenade Launcher is a two-handed handheld weapon added as part of the Saints and Sinners update update.

Function

The Grenade Launcher is a short-to-medium range weapon which shoots lethal and non-lethal 40mm grenades (hand-thrown grenades are not valid ammunition). As all weapons (save the Flamer.png Flamer), the grenade launcher works underwater. Grenades launched from the grenade launcher will explode on impact. Unlike Nitroglycerin, grenades will never explode unless launched from the grenade launcher.

The grenade launcher proves to be a versatile weapon, capable of providing unmatched single-shot damage (capable of putting a Human into critical state with a single shot), or to non-lethally Affliction Stun.png Stun any character in an area, however, the single-shot nature of the grenade launcher, the relative expensiveness of its ammo, and the associated explosions (which can be dangerous inside the Submarine) makes it necessary to properly evaluate a situation before shooting.

Due to the Grenade Launcher's size, it cannot be carried in the hotbar. To carry it must be held in both hands, or in the Toolbelt.png Toolbelt slot, which hangs it from the character's back.

Usage

The Grenade Launcher is held with both hands and must be loaded with 40mm Grenade.png 40mm Grenade or 40mm Stun Grenade.png 40mm Stun Grenade to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Mouse Right-click to take aim, then by Left Mouse Left-clicking to shoot/use. One should stand at least a room away from the point of impact to avoid the explosion. Despite the fact that Grenade Launcher ammo is expensive and single-use, Grenade Launcher ammunition can be crafted in the Fabricator.
