Yep. The default weapon you spawn with, the machine gun sorta looking thing, also has the grenade launcher built into it. The alt-fire is for grenades, and holding the alt fire button longer before releasing the grenade makes it fire with more force (so a short lob uses a quick touch, which you can blast it a good distance by holding for a bit..).
Hmm.. 3 rocket spread. I liked the 6. But the lack of the grouped or flat spread option is also a bit disappointing. (In UT, fire a 6 rocket spread using the primary held down, and it'll be a flat spread. Start the six pack by hit the primary and holding it, but add-in the alt fire button before releasing the primary, and you get a grouped fire where the rockets all stay close together in a round looking bunch.)
I'll have to mess with the game a bit later today and listen again to the shock sounds, then go into UT and do the same. I still like UT weapon sounds better, mostly. Then again, I'm used to it more, having played it since it originally first came out.
