With the ability to launch rockets at range, the RPG is a versatile support role for either anti-air or anti-infantry applications. Although ideal for helicopter hunting, they can also eliminate large clusters of enemy infantry or even a troublesome Machine Gunner or Sniper nest. However, they must always be aware of friendly soldiers behind them, as the backblast from their rocket (reaching three meters) can easily kill. Their choices in armament allow them to fight in either long or short-range combat when not using the RPG.

Gameplay Details


Depending on how the RPG is used, it has many roles, and is a very power projectile explosive, although it is limited ammo, so it advised to choose targets wisely. The RPG is able to penetrate a majority obstacles and cover that people tend to hide behind, such as walls and sandbags. When there are clusters of enemies in one area, or an enemy of threat behind something, the RPG is the best solution. When a RPG hits an obstacle, it penetrates through the material and in most cases, killing those on the other side of it. This makes RPGs are very effective in fortified or urban environments, like buildings or bunkers, especially when there are threats like snipers or machine gunners. Be aware that no friendly is behind you when shooting an RPG, as backblast tends to kill those unfortunate enough to be behind one; if explosive traps like toe poppers or tripwire mine are within the backblast radius, the user themselves will end up blowing up as well as killing those within the blast radius of the traps.

RPGs are also quite effective dealing with aircraft such as helicopters as an anti-air weapon. A majority of times, when a rocket hits the helicopter, they are instantly killed, but there some cases in which helicopters survive shots depending on where you hit. Sometimes a helicopter is lucky enough to escape with just a scratch, but a majority of times in these cases, some unfortunate people on board are killed, or parts of the helicopter are nonfunctional, often leading to a fatal crash. When shooting helicopters with RPGs, it is mostly recommended to do so if they are low enough and vulnerable to such threats. Although RPGs work quite well against aircraft, shots that miss the helicopter will often scare them off before they even attempt land. When a transport helicopter such as the Huey is in sight, it is advised to hold fire and wait for it land before attacking it; when helicopters land, they risk being attacked and their escape is delayed for a couple to few seconds, allowing the RPG to make its attack. These tactics are mostly effective as long as there is communication within the team.
