View Full Version : Rocket Launcher

Have any of you been playing with the rocket launcher? It is AWESOME. It takes some skill, but if you hit "f" you get a guided rocket. I can go around corners and up and down stairs, but you gotta be fast with the mouse. Also, works great as a scout in larger open areas, and it is pretty funny to see the enemy hunting for you about 3 acres from where you are at. Also, can get a 1 shot kill on the Templar armor bots if you hit the secret spot. (its tough). Also partial to the sniper rifle. Any other thoughts?

Nice thing.. yeah... the alt-fire is cewl...
Beats the GEP from DX1 if you ask me :D (one of my favorites)
If only it would do more demage in normal combat...
I mean.. a headshot with a sniper-rifle is just as effective (appart from with the knights-armors)
But it would only be logical that a rocket in your guts would hurt even more then a sniperrifle...
It could let's say.. consume more ammo... to not make the game TOO easy...
But in DeusEx 1.. there's not much that can withstand the GEP

I'm using a thumb trackball & the 'cruise' missle is a kick! Hook it up with the ammo scavanger & distance mods;)

I found the rocket launcher & guided missle to be crucial to the final stages of the game;
On Liberty Island, about 90% of my kills were made with the guided missle. I sat on the opposite side of the baddies, just launching away. I took out Saman this way (& JC/Paul, to check the 'Renegade' - e.g, Omar - ending). Quite, quite fun... and useful.
