Notes[]

  • Cheaper than C4 Charge because it does not require Electronics, Hide, Fiber and uses 35 less Gunpowder, 15 less Crystals. However Rockets require 7 more Metal Ingots compared to C4 and takes 15 more Cementing Paste.
  • According to the Steam Forums, Rockets are more designed to be used against buildings than dinos. It can be useful in caves against a flock of smaller dinos such as Onycs, or can be used to enrage a Giganotosaurus into dismounting its rider, but many users complain of unpredictable results when used against anything other than player-constructed objects.
  • You should keep in mind that Rocket Propelled Grenades, when used in closed quarters, can heavily damage your dinosaurs, or you. Be careful when shooting things at a close distance.
  • RPGs can be shot down by Auto Turrets.
