|Rocket Launcher (RLX-9157)|
|Used by||Elite Guard, Indoor Guard|
The Rocket Launcher is the best choice for vehicle destruction in the game. Its high velocity explosive shells are capable of destroying buggies, patrol boats, and even helicopters. In the Campaign, the player can load four rockets in the launcher, while only one can be loaded in Multiplayer.
The Rocket Launcher comes equipped with a scope with optical zoom that allows for a more accurate shot. The scope is not as high powered as the sniper rifle, but gives a good view of possible targets to hit. The blast radius of the rockets fired is large enough to clear a 10 square foot area, so it is a viable option for clearing a group of packed enemies from range.
- The Rocket Launcher is based on the M202A1, which was originally created to replace WWII vintage flamethrowers. It fires 66 mm M74 rockets, which pack approximately 1.34 pounds of TPA (Triethylaluminum), an incendiary agent.
- In the Far Cry manual, the Rocket Launcher can be seen having 8 barrels, indicating the weapon was supposed to have more than 4 rockets loaded at the same time before being altered.
