The Grenade Launcher from Halo: Reach.
|Accuracy||Medium, arched shot|
The Grenade Launcher is a human weapon that debuted in the video game Halo: Reach. It fires a single explosive round that is deadly, if hit directly by, under normal circumstances.
In a way, the Grenade Launcher has two separate firing modes. By simply tapping the trigger, you can fire an explosive round that explodes on impact, or can also bounce off of walls before hitting the enemy. However, you may also continue to hold the trigger upon firing, which will prevent the explosive round from going off until you either let go of the trigger, or your player dies. In this way, it can also be used as a landmine of sorts.
The weapon also has the ability to emit an EMP wave which can disable flying targets if they are within it's vicinity when it goes off.
The main drawback to using the Grenade Launcher is it's slow reload rate. Hitting your opponent on the first shot is crucial to surviving, as you may not be able to fire another shot when in direct contact with the enemy.
