Grenade launcher
grenade launcher is a Firearm that launches explosive projectiles in an arc.

They are much more effective at delivering their payload than simply throwing an ordinary grenade would be, and, like their hand-held cousins, they are extremely effective against soft targets. Their projectiles come in several variants, such as fragmentation (which contain small shards of metal propelled outwards into nearby soft targets upon detonation) or high explosive (designed to do heavy damage to armored targets).

While a grenade launcher does not boast the projectile velocity, accuracy or potential homing capabilities of an RPG, Bazooka, missile launcher or other such device, they are usually capable of firing a much larger number of projectiles before requiring a reload.
