Rockethogs are ladybug-like Mimics that stay on the ground for a short while before bloating up and launching itself into the air with a jet of haze. They have no horizontal movement.
Tips & Attacks Edit
Relatively simple to kill, but the Haze jet lingers for a moment, posing a risk to any character trying to get past it. In addition, any player standing too close to the rockethog as the mimic launches will be damaged by the jet of haze. They are also one of a very small number of mimics who are immune to the extra damage of NG players' charge attacks. A charge attack on a Rockethog will do only one 'hit' worth of damage during trailblazing.
When on the ground an Aeronaut can just crouch and attack normally to defeat it. As it launches you can either use the angle shot or jump and shoot to hit. Aeronauts also have some amount of difficulty in attacking Rockethogs at times, if on or near a slope, as Aeronauts do not have a downwards attack. They must either ensure they are lower down the slope or focus on attacking whilst the mimic is in flight.
A Ferric can just go close to it and attack it while it's on the ground, if it's in the air, jumping and slicing it works as well.
When on the ground a Crag can just attack normally to defeat it, but when it shoots itself up you can use the angle shot to hit it.
Additional Information Edit
Sprocket Information Edit
From Rare Mimics: Rockethog:
- This small Mimic inflates itself with pressurized Haze. It then expels the Haze, blasting itself upwards.
First Encounter: Trailblazing
Quest Relevance Edit
- The Mimicology Quest "Rockethog Study" (CY0010) involves collecting 25 Rockethog Snouts that are dropped by Rockethogs for Cypress. During this quest, 25 Rockethogs will appear in Hatchwood Wilds.
Trophy Farming Edit
Apart from during Co-op Trailblazing in the members-only maps, the only opportunity to farm this mimic is during the Mimicology quest Rockethog Study (CY0010). During this quest, 25 Rockethogs appear at locations throughout Hatchwood Wilds. Once killed, they will not reappear like normal Mimics. However, if you abandon the quest and restart it, all previously killed Rockethogs will reappear.
The location of the Rockethogs during the Mimicology quest is shown in the diagram.
