Rokets! is the title of a group of assault rifles. They are manufactured exclusively by Bandit, and use the Torgue barrel. The Rokets! is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
Usage & Description
The Rokets! fires a small rocket, similar to its cousins the Torpedo and Rocketeer. Each rocket fired expends 3 rounds of assault rifle ammunition. The rocket travels in an erratic path at a velocity somewhat less than a Torpedo projectile, exploding when it strikes an enemy or obstacle.
Upon exploding, the rocket delivers 100% of its gun damage value as splash damage in a small radius. The rocket inflicts no additional impact damage upon a direct hit. Bonuses to grenade or splash damage will not increase the damage delivered, nor will bonuses to rocket launcher damage. Bonuses to gun damage such as Axton's Impact skill, however, will increase damage delivered.
A Rokets! that spawns without an accessory or elemental capacitor receives the prefix "Rockit" instead of the standard grip prefix. The Rokets! shares this trait with its cousin the Torpedo, but not with the Rocketeer.
Like all assault rifles with the Torgue Torpedo barrel, detonating Rokets! projectiles can be absorbed by an Absorption Shield, which will convert them into rocket launcher ammunition insead of assault rifle ammunition.
Blue- and purple-rarity Rokets! have some of the slowest reload speeds of any weapon in the game.
