If no rounds are fired within a few seconds, the Grenade Launcher begins to fire independently wherever the crosshairs are present. Each grenade does approxiamately 18% damage. Note this move can easily be avoided by frequently moving around the stage, requiring a bit of planning to use it effectively. Firing under airbourne opponents (especially [[helpless]] ones) works, as they should land in the direct blast or at least be hit by the flame radius when jumping or dodging.

For one of the Mii Gunner's Neutral Special Moves, see Grenade Launch.

The Grenade Launcher is Solid Snake's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When his Final Smash activates, Snake will say "It's showtime!" ("SHOU TAIMU da!" in the Japanese version) as he leaps off the stage and grabs onto a rope ladder of a helicopter. The camera becomes an over-the-shoulder view and the player can aim with a crosshair, much like the Dragoon item, to make Snake shoot grenades at his opponents. Snake can fire up to two clips with six grenades; after firing six shots, he loads a new clip. The Final Smash ends when Snake runs out of time or uses all of his grenades. This can be one of the most devastating Final Smashes of the game.

If no rounds are fired within a few seconds, the Grenade Launcher begins to fire independently wherever the crosshairs are present. Each grenade does approximately 18% damage. Note this move can easily be avoided by frequently moving around the stage, requiring a bit of planning to use it effectively. Firing under airborne opponents (especially helpless ones) works, as they should land in the direct blast or at least be hit by the flame radius when jumping or dodging.
