The Tesla rocket is an item in the 2016 Doom which is available only in multiplayer. It is a grenade that, when thrown, will fly in a straight line and slows down to shock nearby players, dealing damage. The device will continue to deal damage until it flies past and hits an obstacle.

Tactical analysis[edit]

In multiplayer, the Tesla rocket is commonly used as a follow up to finish off injured opponents. Care must be taken to not activate it too close to an enemy or a wall, as the jolt from the device can also affect the user. When going against Tesla rocket users, it is best to immediately sidestep or use the lateral thrusters to minimize the damage dealt.


The Tesla rocket is named after Nikola Tesla, a famous inventor and scientist responsible for innovations in electrical engineering.
