Box of rockets


(Redirected from Boxes of rockets)
A box of rockets in a secret area of E1M3: Toxin Refinery, in Doom.
A box of rockets in the outer ring of MAP09: Even Simpler, in Doom 64.

A box of rockets is a large box marked with the UAC logo that contains 5 rockets when picked up by the player, which serve as ammo for the rocket launcher. It provides 10 rockets, however, at the I'm Too Young To Die and Nightmare! skill levels. It is tan in Doom and Doom II, and green in Doom 64.

A direct hit from a rocket inflicts a range of 20 to 160 hit points of damage (determined using Doom's pseudorandom number generator); the explosion may also cause additional blast damage. Rockets fired by cyberdemons do the same amount of damage as those from the player, blast damage included.
