One of the coolest bazookas in the game. The projectile is slow, but when it gets its target... Well, you won't need to pull a trigger twice.

—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Stinger 3000 is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 15.9.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time as part of the Military Trader's Van event in the armory.

Description

It is a military rocket launcher that shoots rockets that can be manually guided by the player. It deals good damage, a slow fire rate, a low ammo capacity, and bad mobility. It has the manual guidance attribute.

Appearance

It appears to be a military-themed blue rocket launcher, holding 3 yellow rockets on the back.

Performance

This weapon launches yellow rockets with a steamy trail that follow the user's crosshair and the center-dot when aiming down the scope. So, the rockets in this weapon certainly have a bullet travel time and this weapon has a 4x scope, allowing longer-ranged battles. When the projectiles contact a solid object or player, they explode.

When reloading, the clip is taken out and is replaced by a spare one.

It has a fixed delay input. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Stinger 3000 always has a delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • It is a 1-2 shots, so use another weapon to finish the opponent off if this weapon isn't enough.
  • The mobility is average, so you may or may not need another weapon to switch to for mobility.
  • It has area damage, so feel free to use this against a group of enemies.
  • Use this in close to medium ranges since it is not hitscan. Keep your crosshair trained on your target.
  • If there is only one enemy, then try to hit them directly as it would be a one-shot.
  • This weapon can't be used for 3 cat spam as it has delay.
  • Use this weapon similarly to Rocket Launcher with manual guidance

Counters

  • Attack the user from far away.
  • Since it has a slow reload rate, attack the user when they're reloading.
  • Strafe around so you don't get hit. But be careful since this thing has manual guidance.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use with a high DPS Primary and a weapon that has good mobility.

Changelog

15.9.0

Initial release.

16.5.0

When it was first released, it was a 2 shot. Now, it's a 1 shot if you directly hit the enemy, making this an underrated yet powerful weapon.

Trivia

  • It is based off the AT4, despite it being called the Stinger 3000.
  • Unlike the Stinger, it only has 1 capacity
  • Even if the rocket becomes out of view of the player, it can still be guided. Realistically, this would not be possible without a secondary scope.
  • It is the second weapon to feature the Manual Guidance attribute, the first being the Stinger.
  • Despite the fire rate says 71, it fires much slower.
