The Salvo Rocket Launcher, otherwise known as the RL-4 Salvo, is a heavy weapon that fires rockets in a spiral/curve trajectory.
In contrast to other Rocket Launchers, such as the Longspear Rocket Launcher and the Silverback Rocket Launcher, the Salvo Rocket Launcher is far more inaccurate and chaotic. The small individual rockets only make it dangerous to infantry and light vehicles, only dealing damage to heavier armor when targeted at its weak spots.
Instead, what it lacks in either accuracy and power-per-shot, the Salvo makes up for its ridiculously high rate of fire. The Rocket Launcher could actually fire in automatic and at full blast, the Salvo has the highest DPS in the game and could carpet the battlefield in explosions.
Moreover, despite its inaccurate and chaotic fire, the damage of these rockets are high. Ironically, due to its chaotic nature, the Salvo Rocket makes a good suppressive weapon, pinning down enemies from taking an objective point.
The RL-4 Salvo's execution involves positioning the weapon over the downed enemy, then using the weight of the weapon to crush their head and upper torso.
