Picture of Knex Splodies Grenade Launcher

yes! its the new splodies grenade launcher, yes i am fed up with block triggers and copy guns so i tried to think outside the box-and this is what i found.
it is capable of launching splodies intact over walls, long distances e.t.c. well get to it!

Step 1: What You Need...

this is what you wull need ps:i got the piece count right this time! :)

Step 2: Build the Launcher!

Picture of Build the Launcher!

you will now build the pivoting launcher which will tilt to allow the arms to toss the splodie grenade these parts

2.attach them together with a blue rod (part A) these parts

4.add them to part A these parts

6.attach them to part A like this the splodie grenade track (this is part B)

8.collect these parts

9.attach them together like this(this is part C) (sorry i fogot the grey connectors in the previous picture -.-) this part(this is part D)

11.attach 3 green rods to part D

12.attach 2 red connectors to part D

Step 3: Attach the Parts Together!

1.attach part C to part D like this

2-3.attach part C+D to part with 2 blue spacers and 2 red connectors like this.

4-5.attach part A+C+D to part B like this

Step 4: Attach the Rubberbands and Learn How to Use

Picture of Attach the Rubberbands and Learn How to Use

1. this is what you will need

2. you attach them like this

to use you need to first prime the splodie grenade by taking off the rubberbands (the amount of times i have wasted them cause of this) and carefully put it down now you need to pull the grenade track all the way back till it stops the put your thumb on the yellow connector with white rods and pressure so that it locks in the white connectors now pick up the splodie grenade and lay it on the tracks the base resting on the yellow connector on the tracks and then move it so that the tracks are parrallel to the floor and release! watch the splodie grenade fly through the air and hit an unsuspecting person.

i hope you have enjoyed my second instructable cause i enjoyed making it and if you like this i may post my true semi auto... bye!

I still don't understand how you fire it. Can you clarify?

bedbugg2 (author)PhotoshopMan2008-02-12

*tired after coming back from archery* right...what you do-pull it back then slide the yellow connector forward so it stops it from springing out then pop in the grenade and slide out the connector.

bedbugg2 (author)2007-07-19

its ok but im working on a grenade launcher gun atm that is more powerful

Neo1 (author)2007-07-19

dose it work good?

bedbugg2 (author)2007-07-19

you need to hold the white handle and pull back the track then slide the yellow connector with white rods on it into the white connectors so it doesnt go off then put in the splodies grenade and make sure the track is parallel to the ground then release the yellow connector
