In-Game DescriptionEdit

Screen Shot 2012-09-09 at 15.11.46

"A mid-range anti-material weapon, the shoulder-mounted rocket launcher provides infantry squads with the means to effectively engage armoured vehicles and installation gun emplacements. With pre-launch lock-on capabilities and intelligent swarm missiles, it is a man-portable system able to deliver devastating payloads against material targets.

Key to its success is the swarm missile technology. Fired in salvos, each warhead is fitted with an on-board guidance controller, which introduces random deviations and unpredictable patterns into the swarm's flight path, allowing some, if not all, missiles in the salvo to defeat basic countermeasure systems."

OverviewEdit

To use the swarm launcher, press and hold the fire button and train the box to a vehicle, wait for the beeping to stop then release the button to fire. The swarm launcher cannot be used against infantry or neutral installations.

The swarm launcher MUST be locked onto an enemy, the weapon will not fire if you try to lock onto a location.

As an explosive weapon, the Swarm Launcher gains a +20% damage bonus against armour, but suffers a -20% damage penalty to shields.
