The Rocket Launcher is an Explosive from Raze 2. It has the highest direct damage of any weapon and high explosion damage, but few rounds and it is possible to kill yourself and allies with the explosive damage.

DescriptionEdit

This gun appears in Raze 2. Its a high power gun, and can fire 3 rockets in high succession and with high velocity, just like its earlier version in Raze 1. Also like in the foirst game, the rocket it fires has a slight arc to it. It's description says Standard rocket launcher carries V-12 rockets that have a large blast radius and magnitude. It has a large blast radius as the description says and kills most enemies in 1 hit. It has similar characteristics as Raze 1's rocket launcher, but not appearance. The rocket launcher in Raze 2 still has the old one's characteristics as it fires 3 rockets in high succession and with high velocity. The reload animation is also similar. In raze 1 its color is green but the raze 2 rocket launcher is silver in color.

TacticsEdit

Don not fire at a close-range enemy, as you will deal damage to yourself and may possibly kill yourself. If you can hit an enemy that is in the air, good, but it is far more effective on grounded enemies.

Trivia: The earliest rocket launchers documented in imperial China fired fire arrows with launchers constructed of wood, basketry, and bamboo tubes. The rocket launchers divided the fire arrows with frames meant to keep the arrows separated, and were capable of firing multiple arrow rockets at once. Textual evidence and illustrations of various early rocket launchers are found in the 11th century Southern Song Dynasty text Wujing Zongyao. The Wujing Zongyao describes the "long serpent" rocket launcher, a rocket launcher constructed of wood and carried with a wheelbarrow, and the "hundred tiger" rocket launcher, a rocket launcher made of wood and capable of firing 320 rocket arrows.The text also describes a portable rocket arrow carrier consisting of a sling and a bamboo tube.

Rockets were introduced to western warfare during the Napoleonic Wars; the Congreve rocket was a British weapon devised by Sir William Congreve in 1804 after experiencing Indian rockets at the Siege of Seringapatam (1799). Congreve rockets were launched from an iron trough about 18 inches (45 centimetres) in length, called a "chamber".These chambers could be fixed to the ground for horizontal launching, secured to a folding copper tripod for high angle fire or mounted on frames on carts or the decks of warships.

Shoulder-firedEdit

Main article: Shoulder-fired missile

The rocket launchers category includes shoulder-fired missile weapons, any weapon that fires a rocket-propelled projectile at a target yet is small enough to be carried by a single person and fired while held on one's shoulder. Depending on the country or region, people might use the terms "bazooka" or "RPG" as generalized terms to refer to such weapons, both of which are in fact specific types of rocket launchers. The bazooka is an American anti-tank weapon which was in service in 1942–1957, while the RPG is a Soviet anti-tank weapon.

Other forms of shoulder-launched rocket weapons include anti-tank guided missile, a guided missile primarily designed to hit and destroy heavily armored vehicles, as well as Man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS), which provides shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles. A smaller variation is the gyrojet, a small arms rocket launcher with ammunition slightly larger than that of a .45-caliber pistol.

Recoilless rifles are sometimes confused with rocket launchers. However, the recoilless rifle merely fires a large projectile, not a projectile that continues to propel itself after leaving the barrel of the weapon.
