- — Grimoire Description.
Rocket launchers are a class of heavy weapon in Destiny. They are powerful, shoulder-mounted weapons that launch rockets which explode on impact. This makes them effective at crowd control and boss killing. Even though they have a very low RPM, Rocket Launchers provide a very high DPS, which can be boosted by Cluster Bombs. Unlike most Primary and Special weapons, which are hitscan, rounds fired from Rocket Launchers take time to reach their targets. This time is determined by the Velocity stat, which replaces the Range stat. Similarly, Blast Radius replaces Impact.
In Destiny 2, Grenade launchers were added to the game. Like Rocket Launchers, they fire projectiles which have to take time to reach their target. Projectiles from Grenade Launchers, however, make arcs, causing them to have less overall range. Their ammunition counts usually max out in the tens, causing them to function as a less-damaging Rocket Launcher with more ammo.
