It fires a single slow rocket that does extremely high damage across a wide area, but it takes a long while to reload and uses rockets, the rare ammo type.
The legendary variant of it is able to be obtained from Supply Drops. In the past, the Rocket Launcher used to have a Rare variant. It was before Patch 5.40 removed it from each mode except High Explosive and Unvaulted LTMs. It was added to Creative in Update 10.40.

Those have 1 3.4% possibility to spawn Rocket Launcher of Grenade Launcher. You need to pick a location where you know the chest spawns and go through them all.
