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.

In-game[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's 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.
