Remote Detonate - Rocket Launcher Mod

Manually Detonate Rockets

Manually Detonate Rockets

Remote Detonate will let Rocket Launcher's rockets to be remotely detonated before striking a surface. It is useful for targeting hard to reach enemy weakness such as Pinky's back,or for fast targets that often dodges the rockets. Detonating can be difficult to do when being swarmed.

Can Be Used For Peek-A-Boo Attacks

One tactic you can use is to come out, fire a rocket, run behind cover, and then detonate before the targets can retaliate. This is effective particularly in corridor fights where the targets can't move around.

Available Upgrades: Remote Detonate Mod

Prioritize Concussive Blasts upgrade as it can interrupt demons in a wide area for crowd control. Then pick up Proximity Flare so you can start the mastery challenge.
