This article is about the weapon in Doom Eternal. For other versions of this weapon, see:

The rocket launcher returns as a weapon in Doom Eternal. While it seems to have the same mechanics as its version in the previous game, it features an all-new appearance with a transparent barrel and a skull motif on its side.

Development[edit]

Compare the Doom 64 rocket launcher's pickup sprite.

The fins on the barrel of the rocket launcher seem to be inspired by the profile of the weapon's first-person view and pickup sprites in Doom 64, making this weapon's design one of several such references in Doom Eternal.
