For an overview of grenade launcher models in all games, see grenade launcher.

The grenade launcher is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The grenade launcher is a pump-action operated weapon, firing 40mm grenades from a tubular magazine. Despite being only slightly larger than the grenade rifle, it has twice the weight.


The grenade launcher can fire a total of about 495 standard rounds, the equivalent of 124 reloads, from full condition before breaking.


Behind the scenesEdit

The grenade launcher is based on the China Lake model grenade launcher prototype from the late sixties.[1] The receiver and stock are mis-aligned in game however.

With Dead Money installed and nothing else taking up space in your load order, the grenade's base damage is increased to 30, its spread is increased to 1.0, non-player characters will still use ammunition, and it can still be repaired with miniguns.
