Rocket launcher or missile launcher is a common name for a shoulder-launched missile weapon, the wider international term for any weapon that fires a rocket-propelled projectile at a target, yet is small enough to be carried by a single person, and fired while held on one's shoulder.

An unnamed model used mostly on the East Coast, especially by super mutants, raiders and various other factions such as the Enclave and Talon Company.

Miss Launcher

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

The Miss Launcher is a unique version of the above missile launcher model. It is comparable to a grenade launcher, as it has an arcing flight similar to the Fat Man. Standard missiles fired from this weapon do not fly; instead, the missile-tube itself has been converted to propel them pneumatically. In doing so both the missile's explosive warhead and unused solid rocket fuel are free to detonate together, increasing the missile's explosive damage potential by 30%.

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Rocket Launcher in GTA IV

The Rocket Launcher or RPG is a weapon that has appeared in almost every Grand Theft Auto game since the first.

The rocket launcher is an extremely powerful weapon, capable of destroying almost anything capable of being damaged. The chief advantage of this weapon is its destructive power and area effect (with its blast being capable of inflicting heavy damage several meters away from the point of impact). Although its rockets self-destruct after traveling a certain distance, its range remains impressive. The weapon's disadvantages are its slow aiming, and its potential to seriously injure or kill the operator if a rocket detonates at close range. Its weight is also an issue — the protagonist will be slowed to a walking pace while the rocket launcher is equipped and in all games exept Grand Theft Auto IV the player cannot jump with it.

Description

GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories

In GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, the rocket launcher resembles a US Army M72 LAW rocket launcher, with some aesthetic differences (the weapon is held by a handle on the bottom and fired through a scope, unlike the real life M72 LAW).

In the rest of the GTA III Era (GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas & GTA Liberty City Stories) the rocket launcher resembles a Russian RPG-7 portable anti-tank rocket launcher. It is a useful weapon for starting gang wars in GTA San Andreas, as its splash damage can be used to kill a group of three enemy gangsters in one shot.

GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars

In the GTA IV era, the rocket launcher again resembles the Russian RPG-7 portable anti-tank missile launcher, however it is not fitted with the PGO-7 optical sight usually seen on the launchers.

The Rocket Launcher can be purchased at the back-alley gun shops for $15,000 and each rocket will cost $5,000. The Rocket Launcher cannot be obtained from Little Jacob in GTA IV, however, in The Lost and Damned, Johnny can obtain a Rocket Launcher from Terry's weapons van. This weapon is available in multiplayer via helicopters, which instantly give players an RPG and full RPG ammo upon entry. This is the most powerful weapon in the game, able to take on cars, trucks, enemy players, motorcycles, and even the fearsome Annihilator gunship.
