Grenade launcher while at rest.

The phosphorus grenades used on peasants.

The Grenade Launcher is a weapon that appears in Strife. It is actually a double-barrelled weapon, capable of firing two shots per burst, one after another.

The Grenade Launcher can fire two different types of grenades. The standard variety can be thrown at various angles, and will explode after bouncing approximately 3 or 4 times. An additional trick is that these grenades can be aimed to the point that they can be bounced up and down off the heads of enemies to do additional pre-damage before the main explosion.

The second type of grenade is the Phosphorous Grenade, which can be aimed in the same manner as the normal variety, but instead of exploding like normal, each will erupt into an erratically moving pillar of fire that will burn away for roughly 45 seconds at a time. Enemies slain by the flames will fall to ashes much like they had been hit by the Flamethrower.

Its ammo capacity is 30 explosive grenades, and 16 phosphorus grenades. These can be doubled to 60 and 32, respectively, by collecting an Ammo Satchel.

Ammo pickups for this weapon are as follows:

  • Grenade Launcher: 12 Explosive Grenades
  • Explosive Grenades (white): 6 Explosive Grenades
  • Phosphorous Grenades (yellow and gold): 4 Phosphorous Grenades

The first Grenade Launcher can be found in a locked down area in the sewers.
