* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' makes heavy weapons mission-specific, but one of the late-game assault rifles (the M-37 Falcon) is effectively a lighter grenade launcher. There is also a heavy pistol that is acquired midway through the game that fires small-ish sticky grenades.

A DLC pack introduced the Venom shotgun, which fired explosive projectiles in an arc and could be charged up for a much more devastating hit.

** And the Hawk [=MM1=] is the American counterpart, with 12 grenades and it's still a one-man weapon. It's also just a [[RevolversAreJustbetter oversized revolver]]

** for a heavier firepower there's also AGS-40, which is a 40-mm version of the same concept. It's quite a bit heaver than the AGS-30, but still in the general AGS-17 range, so it can still be carried by two solders.

* It's Russian counterpart AGS-17/30 fires somewhat lighter 30-mm grenades and has a range thar is about 300 m smaller, but compensates by being much lighter, especially in the improved AGS-30 version, where the whole weapon including a tripod and ammo belt weighs just around 32 kilos, and having a higher rate of fire. It's installed everywhere, from the infantry tripods and wehicle pintle mounts to helicopters and tanks. [[TankGoodness BMPT]] mounts as much as three of them for the antipersonnel protection, including two in side sponsons.

* Kamen Rider G3 from ''Series/KamenRiderAgito'' had the GG 02 Salamander, a grenade launcher attachment to his Scorpion machine gun that he used as his FinishingMove. Notably, it was an attachment for his machine gun and even before he was upgraded, capable of destroying Lords.

** The M79 returns in ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'', fake name intact, in the Gage Assault Pack DLC. The later BBQ Pack introduces the M32 as the "Piglet", and the second Wolf Pack DLC gives players the [[RareGuns China Lake grenade launcher]] as the "China Puff 40mm".

The most recent Grenade Launcher is the Arbiter, added in the Gage Sec-Ops Pack. [[note]]which requires finding keys and cases in certain levels to "assemble" the weapon.[[/note]] After assembly however, you get the most ammo of the 4 grenade launchers, the second-most rounds to use, and a far lower arc trajectory, with the downsides being that rounds do significantly less damage than any other Launcher, and a slow reload.[[note]] It's nowhere near as slow as the Piglets reload though; 5 seconds vs 12 seconds[[/note]]
