The rocket launcher is the soldiers primary and most effective weapon. When you are using a rocket launcher you cannot just aim directly at the enemy because of the low speed of the rocket. For example if you see an enemy far away and he is traveling to the right, you must aim your rocket to the right of them. Likewise if they are moving to the left, you would aim to the left of the enemy. In short words you need to VISUALIZE where the enemy is going to be by the time the rocket gets there! Varying on the distance the enemy is away from you, you will have different estimates on where to aim the rocket. Make sure they are not too too far away or they could just dodge your rockets. Remember this takes good practice! Another tip, try to aim at the enemy's feet and not the head or chest. By doing this you will be guarunteed to inflict damage on them if the rocket lands close enough to them. If you hit them on their feet the enemy will fly up high into the air and damage will be inflicted from the fall. A good trick to do is prime a grenade and release a rocket and grenade timed perfectly so the grenade explodes right when the rocket hits them. This will inflict a large amount of damage to them and if you did it right they will be blasted high into the air. One the enemy lands all you need are a couple of shotgun shots. To do all this correctly it takes a good amount of practice. Good Luck!
