The Pattern (Black) functions like a rocket-based shotgun, firing multiple smart rockets at a time in different directions that track enemies. Rockets will still curve towards a single convergence point if no enemy has been tagged.
Each rocket deals the lowest damage out of all Atlas rocket launchers, but it has the highest potential base damage if all rockets hit. Its barrel accessories aim to increase its projectile count.
The Pattern (Black) can spawn with three unique barrel accessories:
A barrel protector that adds one projectile to each burst.
An external gear that adds one projectile to each burst, and increases accuracy by 15%.
A radar that decreases reload speed by 10%.
The Pattern Black is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
