Detached rocket turrets

Back in the day, the description for Rocket Turret REQ cards said that they could lock on to air vehicles, and the ONI variant could lock on to all vehicles. I remember trying them out and they didn’t actually lock on to anything. Since the Warzone Firefight update (I think), that feature was removed from the description. Why would they remove all mention of its lock on ability than just fix the lack of lock on? Detached rocket turrets locked onto vehicles in previous Halos. Why would they not anymore?

I think you’re mistaken somewhat. The ONI Turret Rocket can lock onto vehicles, but only if you have a red reticule. That means you’ll have to get closer to the enemy vehicle to ensure a lock-on.

Aren’t rocket pods completely useless as they are anyway?

Rocket-artillery is never useless.
It really depends on the situation,to be effective.
On one BTB map,the rocket pod is great to surpress the enemy.

I’d say it’s useless against the Banshee, but everything else is usually situational.

The detached variants? I’ve used the standard in BTB and it definitely doesn’t track vehicles. Still good against ground vehicles though.

i love BTB

Lock on range is far too short. Period.

Rocket Hogs cannot track ground vehicles. They can only track air vehicles. The Vespin and ONI Rocket Hogs can track both.

Rocket Hogs do come in handy if you know how to lead a target. Just constantly use it and it’ll eventually come to where you rarely need lock on.

It can it just has terrible red reticle range to be of any use against air vehicles

Only the best people get it. It took me a lot of hard work and I haven’t seen anyone else on the forums with it.

Oops sorry got distracted xD

I will say the rocket pod turret does need a red reticle range buff

Yeah what he said.

They suck in Warzone; you are better off spawning a Whiplash. This being said, they are surprisingly good in BTB.
