The weapon takes form of an [[wp:Heckler & Koch HK69A1|HK69A1 grenade launcher]]. The grenade launcher fires [[wp:40 mm grenade|40 mm]] [[grenades]] at 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 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. The player can carry more rounds than the [[RPG]] allows, though is less controllable than the former.

==The Ballad of Gay Tony==

Also, the time it takes for the grenade to explode has been shortened to about 2.5 seconds, being more controllable than in TLAD. Due to this, is possible to shoot down low-flying [[Helicopter|helicopters]] with a Grenade Launcher.
   
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 Warfare in The Lost and Damned|Gang Wars]].
+
===Grand Theft Auto V===
  +
{{Quote|A compact, lightweight grenade launcher with semi-automatic functionality. Holds up to 10 rounds.|GTA V, description from [[Ammu-Nation]].}}
  +
  +
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the Grenade Launcher is based on a multiple shot, revolver-type launcher, the [[wp:Milkor MGL|Milkor MGL]], specifically the M-32A1/Mark 14 short-barrel variant. Unlike the MGL, the in-game model features no adjustable OEG sight above the drum, but instead, only a picatinny rail. The grenade launcher is fitted with a Magpul MOE carbine collapsible stock.
  +
  +
Unlike in TLAD and TBoGT, 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 TBoGT, 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, reducing the chance of passing away from the target. Shooting at helicopters becomes a bit easier, as the adjusted arc, combined with the arc the player adjusts with the weapon, allows the grenade to reach further when used correctly, especially at low-flying helicopters.
  +
  +
===Grand Theft Auto Online===
  +
Players should be careful while using it, since dying while holding it results in the loss of 1 grenade (probably as a result of a glitch). 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.

"A compact, lightweight grenade launcher with semi-automatic functionality. Holds up to 10 rounds."
―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Shrewsbury 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.

DescriptionEdit

The Lost and DamnedEdit

"This single shot grenade launcher will fire a grenade farther, at a higher velocity and with more accuracy than any thrown by hand. Must be reloaded after every shot, but is powerfully effective. Learn to bounce grenades off walls and around corners to take out your rivals."
―TLAD Official Website

The weapon takes form of an HK69A1 grenade launcher. The grenade launcher fires 40 mm grenades at 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. The player can carry more rounds than the RPG allows, though is less controllable than the former.

Johnny receives a grenade launcher in the mission Action/Reaction, as Pegorino caporegime Raymond Boccino has sold several to Billy so that they can be used to attack the Angels of Death Clubhouse.

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, being more controllable than in TLAD. Due to this, is possible to shoot down low-flying helicopters with a Grenade Launcher.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

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

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Grenade Launcher is based on a multiple shot, revolver-type launcher, the Milkor MGL, specifically the M-32A1/Mark 14 short-barrel variant. Unlike the MGL, the in-game model features no adjustable OEG sight above the drum, but instead, only a picatinny rail. The grenade launcher is fitted with a Magpul MOE carbine collapsible stock.

Unlike in TLAD and TBoGT, 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 TBoGT, 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, reducing the chance of passing away from the target. Shooting at helicopters becomes a bit easier, as the adjusted arc, combined with the arc the player adjusts with the weapon, allows the grenade to reach further when used correctly, especially at low-flying helicopters.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

Players should be careful while using it, since dying while holding it results in the loss of 1 grenade (probably as a result of a glitch). 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.
