The Rocket Turret is a stationary turret that fires  Rocket Propelled Grenade. Players must mount the turret to control and fire it. Like its counterpart, the Minigun Turret, this turret does not need to be powered by a source of fuel.

As seen in game.

While having the same damage per RPG as a primitive Rocket Launcher, it can shoot them 4 times faster and does not lose durability in doing so, unlike the rocket launcher.

As of patch 255.0, Rocket Turrets take a small amount of damage when firing, and can not fire while under 5% health.

List of explosive damage versus various materials as of Patch 257:

 Tek Grenade 2625 1115 612 59 385

* The damage is greater than the health-points of structures of that material
** IEDs are currently just about impossible to place on stone, metal, or Tek structures.For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring.png Dye,  Paintbrush, or  Spray Painter pages.
