"The Rocket Launcher fires deadly Missiles at Air Troops."
The Rocket Launcher is the fourth defensive weapon you can place in your Kingdom. It has a Range of 0-13 titles, allowing it to shoot 2 spaces further than the basic Kunai Tower. It shoots like a homing device.

Rocket Launcher cannot attack ground units, and as it is a defensive weapon, it is auto-targeted by Ninjas, Samurais, Ice Demons. From a different perspective, it is also extremely expensive, both to place and to upgrade. The total gold spent from placing one to upgrading it to level 6 (max) is 10,375,000! (Over 10 million)!
If your troops are all air troops, Big Shot is an option to destroy these rocket launchers so the air troops are a lot more deadly. If they have more than 3 Rocket Launchers, Use Ice Shot(s) to shut them down and let your air troops destroy these Rocket Launchers Raijin can tank a lot of damage from Rocket Launcher which allows air troops to take more time before Raijin dies. Another choice is to replace the Raijin with a high-level (20+) Oni. This may work a lot better, as then the Rocket Launcher can't attack the Oni. However, If they have more than 3 level 5+ Dragon Cannons, This won't work well at all.
Keeping an Air Defense nearer to the middle of your kingdom is best because it will be harder to attack. As your base levels up, your opponents level up too. At a high level, most people will use flying troops, such as Ninjets, Ice Demons and even Healers. Before these troops can have much effect on your kingdom, a rocket launcher would be able to take them out. This why you should make it one of the hardest defensive buildings to take out. With the new Research that makes ninjets take less damage from rockets, upgrading rocket launchers can nullify the research otherwise it takes 2 shots to kill one ninjet which makes killing ninjets twice as long as ever.
- Higher rocket launcher levels makes people think it is a space ship.
