Details

The rockets launched by Soldier: 76 also deal up to 80 splash damage and up to 40 self-damage. It has slight knockback. The visual effect is somewhat misleading, suggesting the blast radius is slightly larger than it really is. It is often discouraged to rely on it as a splash damage dealer, but still relatively effective.

The viewmodel of the weapon has a visual counter of shots remaining before needing to reload, which can be found below the sights towards the rear of the gun. There is also a triangle above that turns the same colors to indicate when Helix Rockets are available. This visual display can change with his other skins' weapon models.
