* Many guns in the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series include a grenade launcher as an optional attachment, known as the [[FanNickname Noob-Tube]] by many players who feel that its ability to deliver unskilled kills makes it a GameBreaker used only by {{Noob}}s. Particularly when combined with the Scavenger or One-Man-Army perks which allow more than 2 grenades each life. They avert the aforementioned unrealistic portrayal as they do have impact detonation and you can {{Cherry Tap|ping}} by hitting someone with an unprimed nade if you're close enough. However, the unexploded grenade is actually a [[LethalJokeItem one hit kill]]. The series also includes various standalone grenade launchers - ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare2 Modern Warfare 2]]'' has the M79, ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' has the [[RareGuns China Lake launcher]], ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyModernWarfare3 Modern Warfare 3]]'' has a standalone version of the [=M320=] attachment alongside the high-tech [=XM25=], ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOpsII'' has the MGL-140 as a killstreak in multiplayer (No unlockable secondary standalone grenade launchers in multiplayer this time) and a unlockable weapon in single-player alongside the Hawk MM-1, and ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts'' also has the MGL-140 (This time unlockable in multiplayer and firing Semtex grenades) alongside the RGM-40 Kastet.

* The grenade launcher in ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' shared ammo with the rocket launcher. However, where the rocket launcher fires in a straight line, the grenade launcher's ammo bounces off walls, allowing it to fire around corners.
** Also, ''Quake'' did show that the rockets were a nosecone and tail attached to a grenade body.
