The Boomshot Grenade Launcher is a single-shot grenade launcher primarily used by Locust Boomers in Gears of War and Gears of War 2. The Boomshot fires a delayed-fuse high-explosive shell that creates a large explosion upon impact, followed by the detonation of about three to five small 'bomblets' that create a series of secondary explosions (comparable to a cluster bomb). The shell is loaded into the Boomshot via a drum magazine. While Boomers are exclusively equipped with the Boomshot, Drones and Gears are also capable of using the Boomshot.
