Rocket Launchers are a variety of Ranged weapon that fire Rockets. While they use the same ammunition, individual launchers vary wildly in missile behaviour. Rockets generally explode on contact with an enemy or solid block, dealing heavy damage within the area of the explosion. This can often damage the user if not fired carefully.
There are four varieties of Rockets available. Rockets I and II are equal in damage, as are Rockets III and IV; as such, only damage values for I and III are listed on this table. Even-numbered variants are capable of destroying blocks when used with certain launchers, though some blocks are immune to explosions.
Rocket Launchers benefit from the damage bonus of the Shroomite Helmet.
