* The pulse rifles of the [[SpaceMarine Colonial Marines]] in ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' have an integral grenade launcher. You know Ripley has a BadAss streak when she insists Hicks teach her how to use it.

** And the Hawk MM1 [=MM1=] is the American counterpart, with 12 grenades and it's still a one-man weapon. It's also just a [[RevolversAreJustbetter oversized revolver]]revolver]]
** The Hawk [=MM1=] is based on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manville_gun Manville gun]] introduced in 1935. Originally in 12 gauge, later versions were 26.5mm and 37mm. While sometimes used as a movie prop gun and portrayed as firing explosive grenades, it only fired shotgun shells or tear gas rounds in real life.

* 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 - ''Modern Warfare 2'' has the M79, ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' has the [[RareGuns China Lake launcher]], and ''Modern Warfare 3'' has a standalone version of the [=M320=] attachment alongside the high-tech [=XM25=].

* Many modern military vehicles feature smoke grenade launchers to deploy a quick smoke screen to temporarily hide themselves from enemy view. Some vehicles, such as the [[GaulsWithGrenades French]] [=LeClerc=] main battle tank can swap the smoke grenades for anti-personnel rounds to defend against infantry attacks.
