Rocket Launcher in Tomb Raider III and in The Lost Artefact

The Rocket Launcher is a weapon in Tomb Raider III, its add-on The Lost Artifact, as well as Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

It can also be used in Tomb Raider Legend by using the cheat program Action Replay.

In Tomb Raider III

In Tomb Raider III the Rocket Launcher can be found for the first time in either the level Madubu Gorge or Aldwych, depending on to which location the player chooses to go to first.

Rockets serve as ammunition for the Rocket Launcher and they're rather rare. This results in the Rocket Launcher being only of limited use in the game.

The Rocket Launcher fires one rocket per shot, and must be reloaded after. Luckily reloading is fairly quick for this type of weapon: Lara just uses a lever on the side of the tube. No other weapon in the game inflicts this much damage. Also, it is very accurate and useful for extreme long range, Therefore, this weapon is best employed against large enemies such as the monsters in Antarctica or bosses.


Main article: Rocket Launcher Bug

There is a helpful bug in Tomb Raider III that lets Lara use the Rocket Launcher with a much higher firing frequency. This especially helpful with high powered enemies like bosses.

In The Lost Artifact
