The G9 Grenade Launcher is a Multiplayer only weapon in Max Payne 3. It is exclusively available as part of the Disorderly Conduct DLC pack along with the Hammerhead auto shotgun and the Molotov Cocktail.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The G9 is a single-shot grenade launcher. DPS is on par with Rotary Grenade Launcher, there's a major difference between both launchers, however - unlike its semi-automatic counterpart which fires its projectiles parabolically, the G9 fires almost straight forward, thus having much greater range and allowing for more precise shots.. It is also more difficult to dodge a single blast since its projectiles travel at much faster rate.
Direct hit from a G9 will guarantee a kill against an opponent. Players can prevent that by sporting bomb suits or triggering unstoppable or Big Dog bursts. Health bonus from Fresh Blood will also save a potential victim. If a grenade lands not far from the target (approx. 1 metre), it will trip them over, allowing the user for an easy follow-up shot. The only way to prevent that is a bomb suit.
Players can carry up to 6 projectiles at spawn. They are also able to loot more if they run out of them, however, there's a considerably lower chance for this to happen when compared to looting for regular ammunition.
The G9 reloads fairly slow, on par with RPG. Because of that, Quick Holster item comes in handy. Reloads can also be slighly faster if player reloads the launcher manually right after firing - automatic reload takes a skippable portion of time.
