Rocket Glitch in Crucible

Well, it seems there is a new glitch that has been discovered in the Crucible that can basically give a player rockets at the beginning of the match and continue to stack.

The way it works is you take a King's Fall primary or secondary, which all have the "Cocoon" perk, and equip a rocket launcher with the "clown cartridge" perk. Shoot a shot from your raid weapon and then switch to your rocket. When the cocoon perk pops, there is a chance (25%) you'll get a rocket.

You can do this at the start of the match and keep going - never needing to pick up heavy ammo.

Bungie is aware of the problem, so I expect it will be fixed soon, but beware!

I was experimenting with this. It's supposed to work with multiple weapon catagories.

I saw it work once.

Sound like it's time to drag out my old Y1 Radegast's Fury rocket launcher, which has the 'clown cartridge" perk and my Doom of Chelchis scout... :)

DEEP, sounds like Bungie unwittingly brought us a version of "Rockets on Foundation"...

Iron Banner is on hold and Trials has been cancelled until this bug is fixed.

The glitch is worse and easier than I thought. I used Doom of Chelsis primary and a Blue/Rare rocket launcher. It only takes a few minutes to go from 0 to 1 or 2. In a  story mission I raised 17 rockets in ~10 minutes. I only experienced increments of 1.

Adding on to the glitches problem, you do not have to reload the rocket launcher. Just fire until they are gone. I am plan to test going to orbit and its effect on the excess ammo.

This might be a cool/cheating  way to beat those stinking brothers or get that exotic sniper.

Update: You lose the extra rockets if you go to orbit.

Actually the sooner they fix this the sooner we can get IB going.

I experimented with the glitch over the weekend on PvE strikes. It works quite well, though it makes you less effective as a team member during the time you're continually switching guns. And, with the clown cartridge perk, you still get an occasional bonus rocket in addition to those made by swapping guns. 

I haven't had the courage to use this in the crucible yet.... I can only imagine the hate mail if you were to sneak up on the opposition's heavy ammo drop, and rocket them just as they pick it up.... Or get a rocket kill in the first minute of the game.... If they were DoP users, I'd be OK with it.... :)

Well, I got killed by a rocket during the first minute of a game a few days before this glitch became widely known, and almost sent some hate mail to the perpetrator. Ended up just reporting them for cheating. But I was wondering "how in the eff did he do that?".

Looks like the bug has been fixed.  There was another one fixed as well -- unlimited Supers.  Didn't know about that one.

Wish I had known about the super glitch.  :(

Iron Banner is active. The loot seems ... less
