This article is about the classic BrickBattle weapon. If you were looking for the article about the gear item, see Catalog:Rocket Launcher (gear).The Rocket Launcher (originally called the Bazooka) is a BrickBattle weapon common within maps featuring simplistic demolition. The weapon is a long grey tube that can shoot rockets. It reloads for approximately 7 seconds before being ready to shoot. The rocket launcher shoots a slow explosive rocket projectile, making it simple to dodge it , that explodes on contact with any solid object. The fragmentation that flies out upon explosion has been updated in an update, along with all explosions. The tool icon is a rocket pointing diagonally up.
Sometime in 2011, the rocket launcher was updated and given a new ammo, which looks more like a rocket than it did previously. Oddly, the rocket launcher is held with the back in the front. No one has made an attempt to fix it, and it does not significantly affect gameplay.
The model for the Rocket Launcher is the Swedish Carl Gustav Recoilless Rifle. UristMcSparks created an endorsed model of a Rocket Launcher.
The Rocket Launcher was also featured in an advertisement/sign of Happy Home in Robloxia. According to the sign, it could also be used if a player is tired of building, according to one of the signs in the original.
Since the Rocket Launcher is a slow projectile, it can be easy to dodge, rendering it useless in simple far-ranged combat. However, it is best used in close-ranged combat along, with the Sword, since the rocket moves fast enough for others to quickly react to it around a 10-stud radius.
