Alternate fire for the SMAW?

Wut? It would be ironic if it's alt fire is an automatic fire (with weaker rounds). But that doesn't make much sense with the tech it's made of. What would be funny would be if it's a sort of super jump where the player shoots at the ground and he/she gets propelled up.

Wouldn't it be cool if there were grenades that didn't hurt you, but released a concussive blast that propells you?

that's the price of rocket and grenade jumping, that's why you don't do it with low health.

Thinking of alternate fires for the SMAW.....

How about a sort of guided missile? Like when you shoot it, the camera shifts to the point of view of the rocket, and you can turn corners and stuff (within reason, probably small shifts to the angle, really) at the cost of leaving yourself exposed?

I know that they do this in a lot of games, but the best example I can think of is the Visi-bomb glove in R&C 3.....

^The best I can think of is the Slayer from Perfect Dark.

This one is probably much more likely. Although I would imagine that if HVS does give it a secondary like this, that they decrease the power of the rocket while using the secondary and make it very difficult to control.
