"A wide-barreled smoke shell launcher. The shell will upon impact release a cloud of smoke, obscuring incoming shots and preventing turrets from locking on."
The smoke launcher fires smoke bombs that explode on impact, covering a small area with smoke.
Smoke launchers can be crafted with smithing skill 4 at a machining table after researching gunsmithing with 75 steel, 4 components and 10,000 ticks ( of work. Smoke launchers can also be purchased from outlander and orbital combat suppliers or outlander settlements.
Smoke launchers are useful when disarming turrets since the smoke can totally prevent them from locking on. Since the smoke blocks line-of-sight, you don't need to directly blanket the turret with smoke- as long as there is smoke between you and the turret, the turret will not lock on.
Smoke is also useful in preparing for a melee rush. By reducing the accuracy of ranged weapons your melee fighters will find it safer to charge in.
