The Rocket Launcher is a portable projectile weapon. It fires highly explosive rocket rounds which cause heavy damage loss. It is the heavy assault weapon available to every playable faction's assault class. The rockets it fires travel fairly slow, so you will have to aim ahead of a moving target. By locking onto a tank or machine, a red circle will appear around the target's critical point(s), allowing you to take it down even quicker. This gun is the best there is for taking out obstacles with a lot of health, and can even take out nearby enemies by shooting at the ground near them. The one thing you have to be careful with is the very limited amount of ammo the gun carries, allowing you only a few shots before you have to get more. It also must reload after almost every shot.
- For reason unknown, the destructive power of the rocket launcher has a minute splash effect, thus proving it a terrible weapon to use to fight a group of enemies.
- If timed right, a lightsaber user can deflect a rocket in SWBFII.
