The Seeker Six rocket launcher is a mid-tier weapon for the demolition-class. It can shoot single, weak rockets semi-automatically or dispose of its entire magazine (or what's left of it) for multiplied damage. Like the name suggests, the Seeker 6 is able to lock-on to specimens (this happens automatically) to minimize ammunition wasted and maximize efficiency against fast moving targets.
Unlike most demo weapons, the Seeker 6 deals minimal damage to its user at close range and as such is relatively safe to use for personal defense, even off-perk.

Price and Ammunition
SeekerSix starts with £2250 base price and gets 10% discount per Demolition Expert level. Starting ammunition is 48, max ammunition is 96 missiles total and stays stable. A single missile chamber costs £15 base and Demolition Expert gets small discount of 7% per level, reducing the cost down to £10 per chamber of six missiles.
Seeker 6 deals immense knockback compared to its low damage. The launcher has the lowest base damage among Demolition weapons, but even single missiles are able to push around lesser zeds. In the hand of a level 6 demo, a single body shot kills crawlers, a headshot kills stalkers and clots and full magazine with alt fire is enough to kill gorefast and sirens on bodyshots or husks on headshots, even with 6 players hell on earth.
- The main use of the knockback is flailing the big target on the point, juggling -preferably on a new darted Pipe, buying time until it arms- and kiting it. To maximize the knockback, one should aim down in front of the target after lock on, hitting the targets feet to sweep it away.
- Locking on and aiming above the target can result in a guaranteed headshots, even with all 6 rockets from alt fire. This is also desirable on a fleshpound, altough he takes the same damage from the rockets on torso shots, to make none of the rockets hit his feet to maximize the damage.
- Although you can get guaranted headshots from very far away and snipe down targets, it can be very troublesome to pick the right angle, since sometimes, aiming too high can make the rockets miss. Aiming far above the target and lowering the aim until the rockets lock in and then aiming a bit lower works well on long distances. On short distances, locking in and shot during a jump will work better.
- When all 6 missiles land, it can deal up to 1700 damage on headshots and push it back from the hands of a level 6 demo.
- Since the splash radius is very small, it can be used to snipe down important targets without enraging scrakes or fleshpounds.
Advantages & Disadvantages
- Reasonably lightweight (same as the M32)
- Variable firepower, via alt fire
- Can fire off its entire drum with alt-fire, or at least the remaining rockets.
- Substantial knockback - ideal for making distance between the user and enraged Scrakes/Fleshpounds.
- Fast reload (all 6 rounds at once)
- Missiles can home in on targets, scoring headshots from far away
- Can track the Patriarch even when cloaked
- Missiles can be launched without locking on, in an emergency
- Moderately slow reload
- Ability to deliver a powerful blow via alt fire degrades as individual shots are fired off.
- Low magazine capacity of six shots
- Single shots deal very low damage and almost no splash, limiting perk progression.
- Time to lock missiles on target can be troublesome
- Picking the right angle to headshot is hard, almost impossible at low range
- Requires DLC in order to be purchased in the game.
- The weapon has "GLM CAL. 40MM" and "Horzine DefenceTech" writen on the left side of the barrel. This implies a new division of Horzine titled "DefenceTech", a weapons development division.
- When reloading the weapon, the new cylinder the player inserts into the weapon only has a single rocket loaded into the top chamber instead of all six chambers being occupied.
