|M80 Rocket Launcher|
|Killzone 2, Killzone: Mercenary|
|Rate of fire||Low|
It fires a single 84mm rocket at a time, which activates its thruster shortly after. It is just as powerful as the VC9 Rocket Launcher, but has a scope, instead of iron-sights. The M80 has a homing ability: when scoped in, keep your crosshairs on the target until a diamond shape appears, which is your signal to fire. This ability is effective against airborne targets, such as the Sentry Bot, as well as Intruders, Helghast Dropships, and Stingers.
- The M80 is based on the real-world SMAW rocket launcher.
- The M80 model is almost identical to the M404 Missile Launcher from Killzone; it is not clear whether the two are supposed to be different weapons, or whether they are the same and the name has simply been retconned between games.
