A veritable relic, Mercy is a pre-WarUS Army automatic grenade launcher that was apparently used by one of the US Army's counter-insurgency units hunting Chinese Hei-Gui commandos in the American southwest. Presumably during this period, one of its operators spray-painted Hei Gui Bye Bye on the chassis. At an undetermined time, it was obtained by the Brotherhood of Steel and continued to serve as a weapon, eventually ending up in the hands of a Paladin in the Mojave chapter. It was lost when its operator was killed while exploring Dead Wind Cavern.
Its higher damage comes at the cost of using 40mm grenades, which are less common and more expensive than the 25mm grenade used by standard grenade machineguns. The larger size of the 40mm grenades also restricts its ammunition capacity to 18 grenades, which is 12 less than the regular grenade machinegun. The 40mm grenade is also heavier than 25mm, further limiting the amount of ammo carry in hardcore mode without being over-encumbered. Like most unique weapons, Mercy cannot be modded.
This weapon looks extremely rusted and used.
