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!" 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 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.
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.
- The model of Snake's grenade launcher seems to be based off of the Milkor MGL which also makes an appearance in MGS4.
- Snake first used a grenade launcher in the original Metal Gear for MSX and then in MGS4. However, it is only a modification for the M4 carbine assault rifle.
- The line Snake delivers when he performs the Final Smash is the same one he gave when he first revealed himself as a newcomer in the E3 trailer.
