The Mercenary's grenade rifle is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.
Very similar to other 40mm grenade rifles in the Mojave Wasteland; the only differences are the darker tone of both the wood and metal, lighter weight and no requirement of 25 in Explosives skill. Unlike the majority of unique weapons variants, it can be modded with the grenade rifle long barrel.
The Mercenary's grenade rifle can fire a total of about 495 standard rounds from full condition before breaking.
