The Ranger's Launcher possesses slow attacks, but provides sustainable damage at range, as it doesn't require the user to be in ideal range, and its Weapon Action, the sticky bomb, restores a large amount of PP based on how many hits you can deal to an enemy it's stuck on. Learning the active skill Launcher Attack Reinforce can increase the Launcher's Normal Attack and Sidestep Attack/Counter speed and damage, increasing its effectiveness against aggressive enemies.

The Launcher's attacks require commitment from its user due to its slow attack speed overall. Compared to the Assault Rifle, the Launcher also lacks against aggressive bosses not only due to its slow attack speed, but its lack of a strong counter attack. Though Launcher Attack Reinforce negates this downside, it has a cooldown.

Features of Launcher

Normal Attacks

Icon Stat NA1 NA2 NA3 Charged Charged Grouping
NGSUINormalAttackLauncher.png Potency 210 190 240 360 (455) 324 (410)
Potency; Reinforce 310 290 340
PP Recovery 10 10 12 15 15+5+3+2+1
(Total 26)

Fire a rocket at the enemy 3 times. Hold Normal Attack for 1 second to charge the Launcher and release to fire a spread of 5 rockets.

Normal Attacks


  • The rocket can hit multiple enemies within a very small radius.
  • The rocket will explode after hitting an enemy, obstacle, and at a set distance.
  • Due to travel time, the rocket can miss smaller enemies.


  • Number in parenthesis represents the total damage if all 5 rockets hit the same enemy.
    • Rockets can hit the same enemy multiple times, but will reduce each succeeding rocket's damage and PP recovery.

Related Skills
Launcher Charge Grouping: Tightens the spread of the rockets with a forward input but slightly reduces the rockets' power.
Launcher Attack Short Charge: Decreases charge time for the charged attack, but also reduces the power of the rockets.
Launcher Attack Reinforce: Increases the damage and speed of NAs.

Weapon Action

Icon Stat 0 hits +n hits 10 hits
NGSUIWeaponActionLauncher.png Potency 150 +(n*5) 200
PP Recovery 50 +(n*5) 100

Throw a sticky bomb onto an enemy that sticks to them for 20 seconds, with a cooldown of 60 seconds. Hitting the enemy that has the bomb attached to it will prime the bomb, which will then explode after 10 seconds. Each hit on the enemy will increase its power and PP recovery by 5, maxing out at 10 hits (+50 potency and PP recovery).

Weapon Action

  • n = number of hits, up to 10.
  • Though the bomb is a relatively fast projectile, missing the bomb will not refund the cooldown.
  • If the Launcher is multiweapon'd, you can use the other weapon to build up hits.
  • The bomb disappears if you switch to another weapon type that is not multiweapon'd with a Launcher.
  • If an enemy has a part that can broken and a sticky bomb is on it, it will stay in the air where the part break took place. It can still restore PP if it hits an enemy.

Related Skills
Sticky Bomb Quick Reload: Decreases sticky bomb cooldown from 60 seconds to 30 seconds.
Sticky Bomb Advance: Provides invincibility for throwing the bomb, until the end of its animation.
Sticky Bomb Wide Range: Increases area of effect and triples the potency of the sticky bomb.

Sidestep Attack, (Reinforce) 150 (180) 5
Sidestep Counter, (Reinforce) 300 (360) 15

  • Damage is inflicted where the rocket hit the enemy, allowing it to hit weak points accurately.
  • Possesses the highest damage-per-second out of all the Photon Blasts.
  • Like all Photon Blasts, you are invincible until the end of its animation.
  • Power Notation: Deals 252% x 12 hits + 600%.
