The Grenade Launcher is a non-lethal launcher which fires 37mm non-lethal rounds (foam or wooden or tear gas payload) designed for riot control.

It was featured in both Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Director's Cut as the Bazooka (or as the Grenade Gun in Japanese releases). The weapon's game model resembles the weapon's real life design.

In the Remake, it is simply called Grenade Launcher, and there is a useful glitch that involves the weapon, that you can get more than 250 Rounds with any set of Grenade Rounds, using the Item Box. This is best used on Incendiary Rounds, because using them on a zombie would burn it, preventing it from turning into a Crimson Head. This is confirmed to only work on the NTSC version, as it appears that the PAL version fixed this glitch, and it is also fixed on the Wii port and the HD Remaster.

In the Remake, the ARWEN has been modified with an AR-style lower receiver assembly, selector, and a four-position collapsible stock. It includes an assault rifle stock and grip rather than its real life counterpart.

It is Forest Speyer's weapon of choice. On both the original and the Remake, the Bazooka/Grenade Launcher is exclusive to Jill; as such, Chris cannot obtain it under normal means.


The weapon is located on Forest's body on the mansion's east terrace. As Chris, he will receive a clip for the Beretta instead.
