The rocket launcher is a big gun in Fallout and Fallout 2.

A Rockwell BigBazooka rocket launcher. With the deluxe 3 lb. trigger. Fires AP or Explosive Rockets.— In-game description, Fallout


In Fallout, this weapon is very useful, capable of doing massive damage to clustered targets from a long-range. In Fallout 2 however, by the time the player finds the weapon and can access a consistent supply of ammo for it, they're likely near the end of the game, where enemies tend to wear power armor of some sort. Even then, the effective, yet oddly-designed armor piercing rockets it uses can slice through most Enclave contingents with one or two blasts. Most enemies, including deathclaws and aliens, though, have very little explosion resistance, making packs excellent targets. Using this on a locked door will destroy the door but you can still walk through it.


  • In Fallout the first person you can buy the weapon from is Jake in the Oldtown section of the Hub. Zack of the Gun Runners, at the east end of Boneyard, also sells this weapon.
  • In Fallout 2, the weapon can be found in the storage room outside Sierra Army Depot, and several rockets can be found in the Depot's armory.
