Rocketswarm launcher

Rocketswarm launcher

An emergency-defense launcher that fires a single barrage of rockets covering a large area. The turret does not fire until someone activates it. It is very effective against large groups of weaker combatants, but less effective against small numbers of armored targets. Once fired, it must cool off for hours and be reloaded to fire again.

Rocketswarm launchers are security turrets that fire a barrage of rockets at a designated point when activated by a pawn.

Acquisition

Rocketswarm launchers can be constructed once the Rocketswarm launcher research project has been completed. They require Plasteel 20 Plasteel, Steel 200 Steel, Component 2 Components, Chemfuel 180 Chemfuel, 10,000 ticks (2.78 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 5.

Summary

Rocketswarm launchers fire a volley of 12 rockets in 110 ticks (1.83 secs). Unlike most other turrets, it must activated by a pawn, and then manually targeted by the player. It takes 60 ticks (1 sec) between targeting and actually firing. It can target any tile within its 29.9 tile range and within line of sight.

The launcher can be activated once before needing to be reloaded for Chemfuel 180 chemfuel. A partial load of rockets cannot be launched; the turret must be full. After launching, there is a 7,200 ticks (2 mins) cooldown before it can be fired again, and it cannot be reloaded during this time.

Each rocket deals 24 Bomb damage with an AP of 36% in a 2.9 tile radius. Note that per explosion, this is significantly below the default of 50 damage of other Bomb type weapons, although it is made up for by the volume of fire.

When damaged beyond ?% of its health, a rocketswarm launcher will spark and emit a hissing sound shortly before exploding 240 ticks (4 secs) later, dealing 50 Bomb damage in a 6.9 tile radius around itself.
