Not to be confused to RPG Launcher

For huge explosions and firepower, you can't go wrong with a rocket launcher
— Weapon Description[3]

Overview[]

There are 4 costumes for the RPG: J7 Rocket Launcher, El Fugitivo, Potato Gun and TF2 RPG.

Explosive Damage and Reload Speed can all be upgraded 5 levels each, with a separate Guided Missiles "ultimate upgrade".[4]

The RPG is a powerful single shot rocket launcher than is an excellent anti-armour and anti-air weapon, as well as an excellent crowd control weapon.

The Alien RPG is very similar to the RPG, both firing extremely powerful projectiles that can eliminate hardened targets. The RPG has the advantage of requiring no charge time, and the ability to control the projectiles flight path and help alleviate the slow projectiles.

The downsides when compared to the Alien RPG is that the Alien RPG has unlimited ammunition as it uses charge capacity, and the Alien RPG's Backblast upgrade helps prevent enemies attacks from the rear. The RPG's Guided Missiles upgrade also stops the launcher from firing missiles until the missile detonates as the gun will not reload.

The RPG is the successor of the Annihilator RPG from Saints Row: The Third, functioning very similar and having upgrades only different from how the RPG's upgrades are purchased separately and the reload upgrade is part of the Weapon's upgrade menu rather than part the Cellphone/HUB upgrades menu

Availability[]

  • Unlocked after completing The Saints Flow.
  • It can also be obtained before The Saints Flow mission, from civilian Saints Flow Mascots who occasionally carry the weapon. Simply taunt Saints Flow Mascots until one of them pulls out a RPG, them kill them and pick up the dropped RPG.

Analysis[]

Pros
  • Extremely powerful weapon against Vehicles and tough enemies
  • Large splash damage area
  • The guided missile upgrade allows for remote controlling the rocket. While it requires finesse, this allows for hitting targets behind obstacles
  • Easier to hit moving targets than the Alien RPG when upgraded with the Guided Missiles upgrade.
Cons
  • Slow fire rate (requires reload after each shot)
  • Low ammunition
  • Guided missile upgrade prevents reloading the RPG until the missile explodes
  • Slow-moving projectile can easily miss moving targets before the final upgrade
  • Splash can damage the player at short range and can set co-op partners on fire or blast them into the air even with friendly fire off.
