Liquid rockets are rocket ammunition items which place or remove liquids in addition to dealing damage. There are four different types of liquid rockets: Dry Rocket, Wet Rocket, Lava Rocket, and Honey Rocket.

When a liquid rocket is fired, it will explode upon contact with enemies or blocks similarly to normal rockets, and additionally apply its special effect (see below). If, however, the rocket touches any liquid while in flight, it will immediately explode and apply its effects. All liquid rockets deal damage to nearby players, enemies, and critters.

Dry Rockets are purchasable from the Cyborg for 50 at any time. They can be used to craft the other three rockets (see below).

  • The Dry Rocket deletes all liquids in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Wet Rocket places water in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Lava Rocket places lava in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Honey Rocket places honey in a small area when it explodes.

Notes

Tips

  • It is highly inefficient to fire liquid rockets into an already-existing pool; most of the placed liquid will overlap with what is already there. Much more liquid will be successfully placed if the liquid rocket hits a solid block.
  • The Snowman Cannon is the fastest-firing rocket launcher that allows liquid rockets to work normally.

Trivia

  • The Wet Rocket, inconsistently, is not named "Water Rocket", even though its counterparts share the name of the liquids they spread.
  • The Honey Rocket's shape and color scheme look similar to that of the Golden Carrot item from the sandbox game Minecraft, though this is most likely a coincidence.
