Special Weapon Effects

I love the smell of popcorn in the morning. – High accuracy and damage, improved capacity, reduced reload speed. Fires three grenades in an arched horizontal spread, which bounce off surfaces twice, then explode and spawn a number of child grenades.

Usage & Description

As the Bearcat is a Grenadier-type weapon, it shoots bursts of 3 grenades in a horizontal line, at the cost of 6 ammo per shot. It is best used at short range, as its accuracy is cancelled out by its spread. The fact that the grenades it fires spawn child grenades makes it far more versatile than the average Grenadier, and it proves to be a quick and effective method of dispatching groups of enemies; though can be dangerous to use in small confined areas, due to the added splash damage from the child grenades.


  • The flavor text for this weapon references the fact that bearcat musk glands emit an odor reminiscent of popcorn.
  • It also references a quote from the movie Apocalypse Now. Specifically, the quote, 'I love the smell of napalm in the morning', said by Kilgore.
  • It is similar to the Jackal (shotgun) from Borderlands, as both are manufactured by Dahl, both are pearlescent and both fire arching grenade projectiles.
