Rocket Launcher

The RUST Rocket Launcher is a weapon used to fire rocket ammunition types, and the intention of the weapon depends entirely on the loaded ammunition, but the result is almost always destructive.

The rocket launcher possesses a maximum of 1 round capacity and fires much like you’d expect – very loudly and always with considerable noise and impact. Unfortunately, it can’t accept weapon attachments which makes using this weapon at night very hazardous.

In addition to it being bulky, difficult to aim over distance, dangerous when in enclosed spaces, and all-around miserable to reload, the rocket launcher also makes the wielder a natural target on every battlefield, everywhere. It attaches to the player’s back when not used, acting like a giant beacon that says, ‘shoot me first.’

Obtaining a rocket launcher usually happens at the most inopportune time, such as early on wipe day from a military crate. It may also be looted from multiple scientist types and elite and locked crates.

RUST players not lucky enough to find one may invest an insane amount of Scrap into the Tier 2 Workbench tech tree.

The Rocket Launcher accepts the following ammunition types with applicable short descriptions:

  • Rocket – The epitome of RUST raiding – used for exceptionally high splash damage base destruction.
  • Incendiary Rocket – Used for both raiding and crowd control – creates a large mass of fire at the target location, which is great for temporarily closing a breach or breaking electrical components from a distance.
  • High Velocity Rocket – Very low drop, fast traveling rocket used primarily to break traps or turrets and destroy the Bradley APC
