The Rockets pickup launches three unguided projectiles directly ahead of the user's ship. If all three rockets hit an opposing craft, they will cause heavy damage and slowdown, potentially resulting in an elimination.
The Rockets are a Pickup that fires three projectiles in a small spread. While they do not home in on targets they are technically guided, as they follow the elevation of the Track. Each individual projectile is stronger than a single Missile and if all three projectiles hit the incoming damage will, with a very high chance, instantly eliminate any contender. This, combined with them being the most common pickup, causes the Rockets to be one of the most reliable and strongest weapons for beginner and expert pilots alike.
During the course of the game's development, the RocketsPickup changed its projectile count from one centered rocket, to two slightly spread rockets, ultimately culminating in three spread projectiles that follow the Tracks undulation.
All of the Pickups iterations are usable with Codemods.
