The Szakolczay 66mm Type R12[1] Locust automatic rocket launcher is a basic rocket launcher in Renegade.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Szakolczay-made 66mm rocket launcher is a perfect choice for those seeking a compact antiarmour package. A six-round magazine allows for rapid reloading and gives the weapon considerable firepower.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Wielded by rocket soldiers of both sides as well as Gunner in multiplayer games, the rocket launcher is a potent anti-tank weapon in multiplayer, though less effective than the Volt auto rifle or Portable ion cannon. Faster vehicles can easily dodge the rockets, however.

In singleplayer, it is the best anti-tank weapon, which can take out most vehicles in three shots and CH-46 Sea Knights in just one, making them crash and burn in spectacular explosions.
