Design and Performance


(Michael De Santa holding the Rocket Launcher)


The Rocket Launcher has a design just like the RPG-7. It has more of a standard gun sight and not a fancy scope. The end of the Rocket Launcher has a hexagonal blast port. The Rockets are military green in color with a default black body and a brown shoulder pad. The Rocket Launcher can be customized with different skin colors.


(The Rocket Launcher in first person perspective)


The Rocket Launcher is a very effective weapon especially for taking out vehicles. Enemies can easily be killed in one shot, however, the reload time might get you killed. Taking out helicopters with this weapon is very easy if you have the right judgment and aim to actually hit them while they move. When shot at the ground near an enemy, it takes them out if they are within a certain radius.

Trivia


  1. The Rocket Launcher and the Pistol are the only weapons to appear in every Grand Theft Auto game.
  2. In Grand Theft Auto III, pedestrians using Rocket Launchers through cheat codes are incapable of operating the weapon properly. As they adopt the behavior of a character with a normal firearm, they will run up to a target and fire at their feet, killing themselves and anybody standing nearby, or greatly injuring them.
