The Grenade Launcher (グレネードランチャー gurenēdo ranchā ) is a weapon item in Resident Evil CODE:Veronica.
It is first seen by Steve Burnside behind a metal gate that can be only opened with the Emblem Card. Claire will need the card later to unlock the gate for herself. Being a single shot weapon, Claire needs to reload after firing every round.
Chris can also use it if Claire put it into an item box before the Nosferatu boss fight. Also after Chris saves her, Claire can use it if Chris put it into an item box.
It uses 4 types of rounds.
Rounds that are filled with explosives. The most common type of round. They also have the shortest range when compared to other rounds because they scatter into small pieces. Note that if all of them connect, the damage can be extreme.
Rounds that are filled with deadly sulfuric acid. Hunters and the Tyrant are highly weak against them.
B.O.W. Gas Rounds
Rounds that are filled with a special anti-B.O.W. gas. Only 3 rounds are found in the game. They are extremely effective against the Tyrant in the plane. Note that these rounds alone cannot kill anything because they only halve the health of any creature.
