How to use the Grenade Launcher
The Grenade Launcher is best used one-handed and the longer you hold down the trigger, the further the grenade will be propelled. It can take a bit of practice to get to grips with how long you need to hold the trigger.
Unlike other weapons, with the Grenade Launcher, you only need to worry about hitting your opponent – you don’t need to aim for their head to do maximum damage because it causes 200 damage no matter where the grenade hits them. If you do not get a direct hit, the grenade will explode where it lands after a second or two. If your opponent is nearby, the grenade can still cause some damage when it explodes – the closer they are to it, the more damage is caused.
The alternative fire option of the Grenade Launcher can be accessed using the B/Y buttons and this switches to smoke grenades. Smoke grenades create an opaque dome that can be used to hide from opponents and confuse them. Although it can be fun at first, smoke grenades are not really very effective.
