The Major Tom
Missing Icon
Creator: Fox McCrits
+30% push force from self damage
-55% explosive jump damage taken
+20% faster firing speed
Deals crits while the wearer is rocket jumping
-69% damage done
+15% bullet vulnerability on wearer
What this is is a rocket launcher built for mobility. The higher self push force alongside the lessened explosive damage allows for better rocket jumps. The crits while jumping allows you to rain down rockets on your enemies while flying, giving you a disticnt aerial advantage. Just consider keeping a shotgun at your side, that lessened damage isn't worth much without the crits backing it up. Oh, and try not to get shot. That hurts normally, but now you'll take a bit of extra damage alongside it.
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Major Tom is a primary weapon for the Soldier. It was a Weapon of the Day.

This weapon will deal far less damage to the wearer than the other Rocket launchers, and will also knocks the user with more force, effectively making rocket jumps higher. It will also always critically strike while the user is rocket jumping and fires faster, but it deals far less damage than the Rocket launcher and will raise the user's bullet vulnerability.
