Multiplayer[edit | edit source]
The Hellion Salvo is a rocket launcher primarily geared towards anti-vehicle play. It can carry up to 4 total rockets (1 in the launcher and 3 in reserve). Its effectiveness as an antipersonnel weapon is limited by low damage, and should not be used against infantry except as a last resort.
Against vehicles, the Hellion Salvo is very effective, as its high capacity and lock-on firing mode allow the player to quickly destroy scorestreaks, even those that require multiple rockets. As of the beta, the Hellion Salvo is the only available launcher and as such is the only viable method of taking down scorestreaks aside from spraying into them with a primary weapon, which is much less effective. The Hellion Salvo is also somewhat effective against ground-based equipment such as the Razor Wire, which it destroys in a single hit.
Zombies[edit | edit source]
The Hellion Salvo appears in the zombie maps Voyage of Despair, IX, Blood of the Dead, and Classified, where it's available as a weapon within the Mystery Box for 950 points. When upgraded via Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Zitro's Orbital Arbalest with the magazine size increased to 4 rockets and its ammo reserve increased to 36. It usually kills heavy zombies, such as "Gladiators" in one shot when upgraded, and it kills Blight Fathers at a minimum of 3 well placed rockets to it's weak points. When upgraded, it deals massive amounts of damage, killing zombies in one shot at very high rounds. Unknown if this weapon deals infinite damage to normal and heavy zombies.
