The Grenade Launcher is a handheld weapon added as part of the Saints and Sinners update.
Function[edit | edit source]
The Grenade Launcher is a short-to-medium range weapon which shoots lethal and non-lethal 40mm Grenades (normal Grenades are not valid choices of ammunition). The Grenade Launcher works Underwater, but due to the nature of it's ammunition, the effective range of the Grenade Launcher is reduced. 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 Stun any character in an area, however, the single-shot nature of the Grenade Launcher, the relative expensiveness of it's ammo and the associated explosions (which can be dangerous inside the Submarine) makes it necessary to properly evaluate a situation before shooting.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The Grenade Launcher requires both hands to be equipped and must have a 40mm Grenade loaded to be able to fire. By default, the right mouse button aims the weapon toward the cursor. Left-clicking will then fire a grenade in the corresponding direction. You 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.
