— Category description in Call of Duty: Ghosts.


Launchers are weapons which fire explosive projectiles that are featured throughout the entire Call of Duty series. In the early World War II titles they were primary weapons, while in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: WWII they were available only as Perks or as a Basic Training. However, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 onwards, they are available as secondary weapons.

Overview

Launchers have many different purposes. They can be used as indirect fire support, anti-armor, anti-personnel purposes and anti-air purposes. The different types are as follows:

  • Unguided Launchers: They fire unguided rockets to destroy targets, mainly enemy soldiers, and include weapons such as the AT4 and RPG-7.
  • Guided Launchers: They fire lock-on missiles to fly at targets; they can be in direct or top-attack profile flight. They must have a lock-on to a target to track, such as the Javelin and the Strela-3.
