Is this how bad the Rocket Launchers are?

Guys, I was playing infection today, and this happened! Like, seriously! 343i, please, either fix Infection, or fix all the super inconsistent guns! What happened to the area damage on the SPNKr? It just didn’t work!

I did enjoy the nuke launchers in Halo 1

Looked good to me. Your shot wasn’t very accurate.

I have to agree with the second part, but I use the SPNKr(standard), and get kills on spartans with full and real shields, at a much farther range from the explosion…

I don’t know about that. I think a Spartan would have survived that shot.

I still disagree, and unless you link a clip, we can’t test.

The Spartans you killed might have already had damage done to them. Don’t suppose if you remember if it had an arrow before your name?

SPNKr has a smaller blast range.
Your shot also wasn’t that accurate, those are more designed to be head on.

Yes, I know(both of your points, which are both valid), but still, the SPNKr should have a big enough are explosion to kill the infected, and for future reference, I shot in front of them to kill, because, well like you have said, my shot isn’t too accurate, and if I had tried to aim at them directly, I would probably missed. Man, a ,lot of commas, don’t grammar check me.
And I swear, people are trying to insult me my saying my aim is bad, I literally have message saying that I suck at aiming…

Now the second shot was a miss, but that first one was pretty close.
He hopped right over that explosion and Zombies don’t have shields, so I would have expected him to go down too lol

Yes, 2nd shot was a complete miss, and I won’t argue with that, and yes, i too do agree that he should have died.

Actually I’m pretty sure the SPNKr has the same blast radius.

The rocket go boom… why zombie no die again?

Latency can be a big change to where to shoot. I can never use rockets effectively any more cause there is no consistency with latency so it can vary by a whole warthogs length on where to shoot.

No, it’s definitely smaller, from my experience. I’ve overestimated the blast radius, thinking it’s the same as the M57, but it’s caused me to miss shots and kills with the M41.

That, or it’s the same and the amount of splash damage is different.

AOE on the Spnkr is very low by intention

Here’s an in-depth analysis of both launchers.

Thanks. I’m gonna watch this later.

Lol dude, just ignore the message. Don’t try and take this all as hate. Personally, I wish the SPNKr was as good as it was in Halo Reach. You would of totally gotten the kill with it that way wherever you shot (within reason of course lol)

Unfortunately the SPNKr is just not as good as it used to be.

Hmm… definitely looks like he should have died. Had it been a full shield spartan I could understand but well…
