==Description==
+
The '''Grenade Launcher''' is a weapon that launches a grenade. It has appeared in [[The Lost and Damned]], [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
The weapon is based on the [[wp:Heckler & Koch HK69A1|HK69A1 grenade launcher]]. The grenade launcher fires [[wp:40 mm grenade|40 mm]] [[grenades]] greater distances than a person throwing a hand grenade and is about as effective as a [[Pipe Bomb|pipe bomb]]. It is best for removing cover, such as a car, however, the grenade does not land in a particular spot, making it less accurate. The grenade detonates on a seven second fuse. Grenades can be fired at and bounced off walls to reach tricky targets. When engaging long range targets, the player must arc the shot (aim higher than the target) in order to compensate for gravity. Although the grenade launcher is ill-suited for aerial targets, the player can carry more rounds than the [[RPG]] allows. In the Ballad of Gay Tony, it features an interesting improvement in which the grenade explodes on impact if it hits a vehicle or person. Also, the time it takes for the grenade to explode has been shortened to about four seconds.

The Grenade Launcher returns in Grand Theft Auto V. It is now based on a multiple shot, revolver-type launcher, such as the [[wp:Milkor MGL|Milkor MGL]].
+
===Design===
Unlike in [[The Lost and Damned]], this launcher will be able to fire more than one grenade before reloading.
+
In Grand Theft Auto V, It is based on a multiple shot, revolver-type launcher, the [[wp:Milkor MGL|Milkor MGL]], specifically, the M-32 variant. Unlike the MGL, the in-game model features no EOTech sight above the drum, but instead, only a picatinny rail. The grenade launcher is fitted with a Magpul CTR carbine fixed stock. The barrel of the launcher is short in comparison with the M-32.
  +
  +
===Performance===
  +
Unlike in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, this launcher will be able to fire more than one grenade before reloading. It comes with a 10-round ammo capacity, which is oddly out of place, for the MGL itself as the real life version can only hold six. Like the grenade launcher in The Ballad Of Gay Tony, shots from this grenade launcher will explode instantly upon contact with a person or vehicle and has a similar fuse if it doesn't instantly explode. The player also no longer has to aim upwards to compensate for gravity as the grenade launcher will automatically adjust the arc of its shots to hit targets if it's a vehicle or person within its reticule and in its effective range. Grenades also no longer bounce across the ground after they land.

Players should be careful while using it, since dying while holding it results in the loss of 1 grenade. Ammo is much more expensive than in singleplayer, 20 grenades costing 5000$. Like other explosives, players in free roam should also shoot carefully to avoid destroying other players' cars.

―TLAD Official Website

The Grenade Launcher is a weapon that launches a grenade. It has appeared in The Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto V.

The Lost and DamnedEdit

The weapon is based on the HK69A1 grenade launcher. The grenade launcher fires 40 mm grenades greater distances than a person throwing a hand grenade and is about as effective as a pipe bomb. It is best for removing cover, such as a car, however, the grenade does not land in a particular spot, making it less accurate. The grenade detonates on a five second fuse. Grenades can be fired at and bounced off walls to reach tricky targets. When engaging long range targets, the player must arc the shot (aim higher than the target) in order to compensate for gravity. Although the grenade launcher is ill-suited for aerial targets, the player can carry more rounds than the RPG allows.

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

In the Ballad of Gay Tony, the Grenade Launcher features an interesting improvement in which the grenade explodes on impact if it hits a vehicle or person. Also, the time it takes for the grenade to explode has been shortened to about 2.5 seconds.

The grenade launcher is only available from either Terry Thorpe in The Lost and Damned or Armando Torres in The Ballad of Gay Tony. In The Lost and Damned, the weapon spawns at the Lost MC Clubhouse and Brian Jeremy's Safehouse after completing 50 Gang Wars.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

"A compact, lightweight grenade launcher with semi-automatic functionality. Holds up to 10 rounds."
―GTA V, description from Ammu-Nation.

DesignEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, It is based on a multiple shot, revolver-type launcher, the Milkor MGL, specifically, the M-32 variant. Unlike the MGL, the in-game model features no EOTech sight above the drum, but instead, only a picatinny rail. The grenade launcher is fitted with a Magpul CTR carbine fixed stock. The barrel of the launcher is short in comparison with the M-32.

PerformanceEdit

Unlike in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, this launcher will be able to fire more than one grenade before reloading. It comes with a 10-round ammo capacity, which is oddly out of place, for the MGL itself as the real life version can only hold six. Like the grenade launcher in The Ballad Of Gay Tony, shots from this grenade launcher will explode instantly upon contact with a person or vehicle and has a similar fuse if it doesn't instantly explode. The player also no longer has to aim upwards to compensate for gravity as the grenade launcher will automatically adjust the arc of its shots to hit targets if it's a vehicle or person within its reticule and in its effective range. Grenades also no longer bounce across the ground after they land.
