- "Hail to the King, baby. Wait, scratch that. Hail to the triple-barreled semi-automatic handheld rocket launcher."
- —In-game description.
The Monsoon is automatic rocket launcher appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.
Overview[edit | edit source]
This rocket launcher can be obtained during story mission Industrial Espionage by killing miniboss Transistor ZL-260 (souped up ZL-Mechs). It might be easily missed due to the fact that miniboss battle is not a required part of mission and story missions are not replayable in free roam.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Boss fighting and crowd control weapon. Rockets are sparse, expensive and even with capacity upgrades, you can`t carry much with you. On the other hand, they pack a wallop.
Monsoon is actually rather lackluster in terms of damage as far as rocket launchers go, but it makes up for that partially with high fire rate and a clip that fits three rockets, while other launchers are strictly single-shot.
As a multibarrel weapon, Monsoon can accept a multibarrel shot mod, which will bring it`s single shot damage and overall performance on par with other launchers - albeit at a triple rocket expense per shot. On the plus side, firing three rockets at once does cover bigger area, so as a crowd control it might be a preferred option.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This weapon had been featured in Shadow Warrior (2013) as a Yari Type-24 Rocket Launcher. Monsoon looks like the fully upgraded version.
