I think we all agree that rockets are OP, but don’t really want to lose them because they are so AWESOME!
I think a way forward might be to make them direct fire weapons. So they do the same level of damage and area affect as they do now, but they have a flat trajectory, so that you can’t lob them across half the map. That would stop us Rocket spamming the most dangerous thing on the map, regardless of where it is.
Grenades and grenade launchers would stay as they are.
Of course, fog of war might have a similar effect, if you don’t know where the Chiron/Siren/Queen actually is. But I can still foresee using a favourite tactic from the XCOM2 Ship Defense mission, where you sneak out a Shinobi-type to locate the target, then hit it with your sniper - or in this case Rocketeer - from a safe distance.
What are your thoughts on this?
