The player can increase his max ammo cap by using Argent Energy Cells and allocating its power to "Ammo" subsystem.

The Rocket Launcher can be unlocked in the multiplayer at level 2 (it's also available to use in level 1 by choosing "Assault" default loadout). The player spawns with 15 rockets (25 is the max ammo). Each rocket does 60 damage on impact. The weapon features two fire modes:
- Primary Fire - Fires rockets that explode on impact, doing damage over a large area.
- Weapon Mod - Immediately detonates all live rockets currently in flight.
