The Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher is a handheld weapon in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Unlike the Rocket Launcher, the Heat-seeking Rocket Launcher automatically selects the nearest available target. Strangely, when it's on the ground it resembles a Russian SA-7 Grail but when CJ picks it up it turns into an FIM-92A Stinger. When pointed at a vehicle the marker is green. After waiting for 3-5 seconds it turns red and the missile is locked on.

Locations

The Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher locked on to a target.

  • As it is a heavy weapon, the player is unable to sprint or jump when using the weapon.
  • They are employed by the NOOSE in The Ballad of Gay Tony, although the player can not access them in any way.
