Throwing grenades and all is great, but sometimes it's better to shoot them. That's where the Grenade Launcher comes in. Size varies from an [[GunAccessories accessory]] to a {{BFG}}. Possibly related to RevolversAreJustBetter if it's the kind with the ginormous loading cylinder (The M32 is the most famous of these). Also included are the older concept of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rifle_grenade rifle grenades]], grenades designed to be fired by sticking them on the end of a rifle.

** 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", 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]]

* ''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.
