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

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Grenade rifle expanded

The grenade rifle is a single-shot, shoulder-fired, break-action grenade launcher that fires a 40mm grenade. Visually, it resembles a large bore, break-action, sawed-off shotgun, and is simple in design, having only five parts: a receiver group, a fore-end assembly, a barrel group, a sight assembly, and a stock. The fore-end assembly beds the barrel to the receiver.

The front sight is a fixed blade, while the rear sight on the rifle is a folding ladder-style leaf-type sight. When folded, the leaf sight acts as a fixed sight for close range. It is, significantly lighter than its pump-action brother, the grenade launcher.

The grenade rifle can fire a total of 495 grenades from full condition before breaking.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The ladder-type rear sight on the weapon is not used when aiming; instead, the player aims down the barrel, using only the front sight.
