Learn how to obtain Rocket Launcher Parts and what they are used for
Yes, the Rocket Launcher does, in fact, have specific parts only it can use. Why? Likely due to the fact that the Rocket Launcher is one of the most powerful weapons in 7 Days to Die. If you plan on crafting one of these weapons of mass destruction, you’ll need Rocket Launcher Parts.
This guide will teach you everything you need to know about scavenging and using Rocket Launcher Parts in 7D2D and how they can be used best.
How to get Rocket Launcher Parts in 7 Days to Die
Rocket Launcher Parts are extremely rare, specialized components designed to produce weapons strong enough to lob explosives at range. They cannot be crafted, so there are only a few ways to get your hands on these valuable materials:
As with all advanced weapon parts, you can search for Rocket Launcher Parts anywhere you’d expect to find a functional firearm. Gun safes, weapon bags, hardened chests, gun racks, and weapon crates are great locations to find these components.
Waste-not, want-not. If you need Rocket Launcher Parts and already have a launcher, you can scrap old or unwanted Rocket Launchers to reclaim a portion of their parts. These weapons can rarely be found in the same locations as their parts.
Some traders will carry weapon parts in their inventory for sale. This is typically the most costly method of collecting these components, but it can be much faster than trying to search for them if you have dukes to spend. Trader Hugh in the Snow Biome of Navezgane is typically your best bet to find what you need, as he specializes in weapons and ammo.
Tips for farming Rocket Launcher Parts
These parts are not easy to find by any means. Fortunately, you’ll probably only need a few unless you plan to take over the whole map with a swarm of rockets. But we’ve got you covered if you need tips to make your search more effective.
1. Explosives Perks
With the addition of the crafting skill system in the A21 Update, players can now increase their chances of finding specialized parts for a certain weapon or tool by investing in its relevant perk. Though not directly stated, we have found that investing in the Demolitions Expert perk increases the frequency of launcher part spawns.
2. Gun Shops and Factories
Navezgane is dotted with numerous gun shops of various sizes, shooting ranges, and the coveted Shotgun Messiah Factory in the Wasteland Biome of Navezgane. These locations are great places to search for weapon parts of any kind, in addition to ammo, armor, and explosives.
Remember: The all-in-one brand for ranged weapons in 7D2D is “Shotgun Messiah,” so any buildings or crates with that name on them are likely to be carrying guns, weapon parts, and ammo.
3. Government Buildings and Military Bases
Governmental buildings (such as police stations, fire stations, etc.) can be found inside and near the outskirts of cities and often conceal at least one gun safe or an entire armory in some cases. Additionally, the abandoned military bases dotting the countryside are bound to carry at least a few high-value weapon containers. Be careful, however, as these locations are often well-defended and swarming with armored and feral undead.
Using Rocket Launcher Parts
Rocket Launcher Parts are specialized components specifically designed for use in long-range explosive weapons. As such, they are only used in the crafting of a single weapon:
The Rocket Launcher is an extremely powerful, tier-5 explosive weapon. This monstrous vacuum tube is capable of launching high-explosive and frag rockets over mid to long-range and delivering payloads capable of collapsing buildings and wiping out hordes with ease.
Final thoughts on Rocket Launcher Parts
Sure, there’s only one weapon you can craft using these specific components. That said, after wielding a rocket launcher for yourself, you’ll probably realize that nothing else compares to it in terms of power and function, which is exactly why The Fun Pimps made these parts so difficult to come by.
