The Grenade Launcher is a weapon in NOVA 2 and NOVA 3. It's excels in both medium and close range. Its also very good for groups of enemies. The Grenade Launcher can be a substitute for players who don't have grenades in Multiplayer.


N.O.V.A. 2 Grenade Launcher


The Grenade Launcher is first seen on the level Payday in N.O.V.A. 2. It is incredibly effective against heavily armoured targets and clusters of lightly armoured targets. It takes out weak enemies easily but unless they are in groups it is generally more effective to use another weapon such as the Shotgun.

In N.O.V.A.3, the grenade launcher's overall design changed slightly, and its rate of fire increased slightly. Strangely, enemies do not detect a grenade when it is shot near them until detonation.


Grenade launchers are very effective at medium to close range. It is also very effective against groups of other player in team deathmatch. It is not good for long range because its rounds explode before it hits an opponent. It is also a good strategy to hit opponents from above.

Trivia Edit

  • In multiplayer in N.O.V.A. 3 it is a bad choice because up close it's hard to use, a slow ROF and low ammo
  • N.O.V.A. 3 launcher's grenades bounce upon impact if not fired on a hostile enemy
