The grenade launcher is a dangerous ranged weapon used by the Prototypes. Unlike James Heller, Alex Mercer did not have any combat training, however, he was able to train himself by consuming military personnel.
The MGL fires its 40 mm grenades at speeds just under 250 ft/sec using a shoulder-firing mechanism with a six-round spring-driven revolver-style magazine, that is capable of accepting most 40x46mm grenades.
When being used by the Blackwatch Soldiers or the Marines against the infected, it has the potential of turning a loosing battle in favor of the soldiers. The grenade launcher demolishes small groups of infected citizens, causing severe damage to Walkers, and stuns Hunters. When used en masse, the MGL is capable of clearing an infected area out in seconds.
The grenade launcher is powerful enough to completely dismember any civilian, military, or infected civilian, leaving only limbs and a broken ribcage.
