— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum
The Valve Rocket Launcher was one of the "joke" Weapons of the Month of April 2012, and as such only stayed for a week. It's a primary weapon for the Soldier, and is visually identical to the Rocket Launcher.
Unlike what the attributes says, this rocket launcher fires syringes that deals pitiful damage, and no other change is made when compared to the standard Rocket Launcher.

- Killing someone with this weapon is near impossible: while the syringes may hit their target, the slow firing and reload speed, low clip size and the very low damage result in a pitifully low damage per second.
