"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. It was supposed to appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, but was cut.


Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City

"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

In The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, the weapon takes form of an HK69A1 grenade launcher. The weapon carries an extended stock and a set of iron sights consisting of a front post and a rear sight that has a flip-up dual aperture for short-range engagements and a folding ladder-type leaf sight for long distance firing (which are also present on the HK69A1). The weapon has a grey scheme.

Grand Theft Auto V

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.


Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City

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.

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 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 V

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 does not 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.

The Lost and Damned


Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Grenade Launcher is unlocked at Rank 60.
  • It also spawns during survivals at waves 6+.



Grand Theft Auto V

  • When reloading, the player only takes a few seconds to drop a used round and a single round is only loaded into the weapon.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • For unknown reasons, the player will lose 10 grenades when dying due to a glitch.
  • Using the melee animation several times on a car with the Grenade Launcher will make the car explode for no reason; the number of hits required randomly depends on the condition and type of car.
  • There is a glitch in the game that the player can shoot the Grenade Launcher faster while blind firing behind cover.
    • This can be done by repeatedly using the left mouse button without holding it down.
