The rusty missile launcher is a weapon that appears in Fallout Shelter.

Background[edit | edit source]

Large explosive projectile launcher which saw limited use in the US military prior to the Great War. Explosive missiles with a large blast radius making accuracy somewhat unnecessary. Caution should be taken when using near allies as the blast radius is formidable.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The rusty missile launcher is a weather-worn heavy weapon featured in Fallout Shelter that can fire multiple varieties of missiles and rockets. Dealing 20 minimum damage per attack, missile launchers have the third highest damage output for a heavy weapon in the game.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All dwellers hold the missile launcher backwards. The weapon's handle is behind the dweller and the shoulder rest is in front of them, which is different from the way it is held in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
  • All variants of the missile launcher in Fallout Shelter are poor choices for combat against multiple opponents. Refer to the weapons page for details.
