Using a Rocket Launcher
Many early access players are wondering how to get their hands on rocket launcher in the game. So far, it seems there are 4 known methods:
  1. Random Supply Drop: Occasionally, during gameplay, a rocket launcher might randomly drop in a supply package. You’ll need to be observant to spot these when they appear.
  2. Capture Certain Areas: During a mission, there may be certain locations that you need to secure or ‘capture’. Once successfully captured, these locations can spawn a rocket launcher that you can collect.
  3. Repairing Generators: Often found in sets of three, generators can be repaired. Once repaired, a rocket launcher will be available in a nearby compartment.
  4. Scanning Beacon: Picking up a rocket launcher from the scan beacon is another method.
Remember, regardless of how you acquire it, the rocket launcher only has 12 shots. So, you should consider using them strategically in key moments to ensure maximum effect. In any case, it’s crucial to act quickly to pick up the weapon before your fellow players do.
