Rockets are a type of ammunition that appear in the Serious Sam series.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Rockets a fairly common type of ammo that supplies ammunition for rocket launchers. The amount of rockets in each pack varies; in Serious Sam 1, Serious Sam: Xbox, Serious Sam Classics: Revolution and Serious Sam's Bogus Detour, it is 5 on Normal and Hard difficulties and 10 on every other difficulty, 8 in Serious Sam 2, Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam VR, 15 in Serious Sam: Double D and Serious Sam: Double D: XXL, 5 in Serious Sam: Next Encounter (regardless of difficulty), Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE on Serious difficulty.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The model for rockets varies between games:

  • In every game it appears in, rockets appears as four or five rockets that are placed in a circular-shaped piece of metal.
  • The color of the actual rockets vary between games; in Serious Sam 1, the Xbox, HD, VR and Serious Sam Classics: Revolution versions, rockets are grey and yellow, while in Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, they are a greyish-green, and yellow and red in Serious Sam 2.
  • In Serious Sam's Bogus Detour, rockets appear as three red rockets inside a rectangular-shaped metal container.

Occurrence[edit | edit source]

Generally, rockets are much more common than grenades, possibly because the rocket launcher is less potent than the grenade launcher and the developers didn't want the player having too much ammunition for the grenade launcher.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Serious Sam: Next Encounter has two variants of the normal rockets: homing and sonic; homing rockets will lock onto a target and try to strike them, even if the rocket is fired in an area where it'd normally miss; the sonic rocket is a more powerful version of the usual rocket that fires a sonic blast when it blows up. Both give five rockets of their type when picked up.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE, "150mm Inferno" is imprinted on the metal holding the rockets.
