Roaster is a unique aftermarket rocket launcher manufactured by Bandit. It is obtained from the mission Note for Self-Person located in The Fridge.

Special Weapon Effects[]

Toasty! – Increased elemental chance, status effect damage, and accuracy. Slightly decreased base damage.

Usage & Description[]

While elemental variants can be used to effectively cause elemental status effects over a wide area, it is a largely unexceptional blue-rarity Bandit rocket launcher, due to most Bandit launchers being used for their direct damage instead of damage-over-time.

An elemental Roaster can outperform a standard Bandit launcher if used on enemies weak to the specific element, but will otherwise underperform due to its lower damage.


  • The Roaster shares its name with The Roaster from Borderlands. The Roaster was a unique drop from Taylor Kobb and had the unique effect of a large incendiary mushroom cloud explosion similar to that of the Nukem.
  • The red text is a reference to Mortal Kombat II where sound designer Dan Forden would appear on the screen and say 'Toasty!'.
