Special Weapon Effects

Gonna cook someone today – Always incendiary.

Usage & Description

The Roaster has no special effect, apart from being guaranteed incendiary. It is always blue rarity or above, but has no limitations on the parts it can spawn with. It should simply be used according to its barrel type (Helix, etc.). Because of the weapon's lack of effect, and lack of Title or Prefix, The Roaster is, at best, just as good as the equivalent Rocket Launcher, but never better.

Drop Guide


  • Instead of having the typical Maliwan shades of blue, The Roaster is black.
  • May spawn with the Maliwan Rhino barrel, causing rockets in flight to detonate multiple times.


The Roaster effect comes from the TheRoaster_acc5_Incendiary accessory. It is exactly the same as the standard acc5_Incendiary accessory, apart from increased tech level, which has no effect on Rocket Launchers. The Roaster has material TheRoaster_Material, which is almost as good as Material_Maliwan_3. Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.
