Rockets are a type of ammunition that appears in the Serious Sam series. They serve as ammo for rocket launchers.


In every game it appears in, rockets appears as five rockets that are placed in a circular-shaped piece of metal. The color of the actual rockets vary between games; the Serious Sam 1, Serious Sam HD, Serious Sam: Next Encounter, Serious Sam Advance and Serious Sam: Double D, rockets are grey and yellow, while in Serious Sam 2 rockets are yellow and red.

The amount of rockets in each pack varies; in Serious Sam 1, it is 5 on Normal and Hard mode and 10 on every other difficulty, 8 in Serious Sam 2 and Serious Sam HD, and 5 in Next Encounter.

Generally, rockets are much more common than grenades, possibly because the rocket launcher is less potent than the grenade launcher and the developers don't want the player having too much ammunition for the Grenade Launcher.


Serious Sam: Next Encounter has two variants of the normal rocket: homing and sonic. Homing rockets will lock onto a target and try to strike them, even if the rocket is fired in an area where it'd normally miss, and the sonic rocket is a more powerful version of the usual rocket that fires a sonic blast when it blows up. Both give five rockets of their type when picked up.
