The Pigeon Launcher is a primary weapon for all classes in Blitz Brigade. It is a holster for a pigeon that carries a dynamite stick on its back. The way the lock-on ability works is that the launcher locks onto an enemy and follows them until they reach their target (this also goes for the later Fullgore R7 and Boris the Bat). For performance, the pigeon makes sharp turns, which in an open area, makes your target a sitting duck and can't avoid being hit. The Pigeon Launcher is highly effective against the Stealth because it will almost always guarantee a kill, and is extremely useful when the player has the high ground. It also takes down helicopters and other vehicles easily in one to three shots due to its homing ability. The main disadvantage is the reload time, which leaves the player very vulnerable to enemy attacks; however, the Soldier class can partially bypass this issue due to having the ability to drastically shorten primary weapon reload time using skill points. As for the other stats, the critical chance is above average, and the range is also very good. The ammo capacity, however, is...well, single shot. Overall, the weapon can be effective, but its slow reload time drags the launcher down in terms of best premium primary to purchase in the shop.
