The Boomstick is similar to the normal launcher, except having an enlarged ammo compartment, targeting apparatus, and a unqiue brand of Thermobaric missiles for ammo.
Its main function is exactly like the Rocket Pod of the Thermobaric helicopters encountered in the mission Project Firehawk. The explosion first causes a large vacuum and pulls everything around it into the epicenter, then a cloud of rapid expanding gas pushes everything away, sending debris flying in all directions. A horizontal pressure wave will still appear even if the Boomstick explodes in midair.
- The Boomstick is available on pre-order of the Blackwatch Collectors Edition of Prototype 2. It is now available for purchase in a pack in the Playstation Store.
- The Boomstick can kill a goliath in 4 shots.
- The Boomstick suddenly disappears when dropped and cannot be picked up again.
- Powers can be activated, but not used when the Boomstick is active. The exception to this is the Shield Power, where Heller hangs the Boomstick on his back to raise his Shields.
