The Hurricane has quickly gotten a reputation for being a very crowd-pleasing weapon - unless we're talking about the crowd it is being aimed at. It stows a weapons package usually reserved for heavy-duty tripods into something a hearty dwarf can carry with ease and has even been upgraded with sophisticated tracking software.

— Item Description

The "Hurricane" Guided Rocket System is an unlockable primary weapon for the Gunner. It is a portable missile silo/rocket launcher with tracking software and a laser pointer on its grip, allowing for its missiles to be manually guided. It consists of 9 rocket pods in the front, a large drum on the side that feeds missiles into the weapon, and a laser pointer attached to a handle.

The most notable feature of this weapon is its ability to guide missiles to wherever the crosshair is aiming, which can include enemies. This tracking feature is applied to all missiles that are fired and cannot be disabled without the use of overclocks, although unequipping the weapon will cause any in-flight missiles to lose their guidance. The guidance of these missiles can then be re-acquired by swapping back to the weapon while they remain in flight.

Reloading the Hurricane while the weapon is full will cause the dwarf to remove the rocket from the exposed top and "fly" it slowly across the screen, occasionally making rocket sounds with his mouth before returning the rocket to its place. If there are no rockets in the top, they will grab for the rocket and shake their fist angrily when they realize there are none, usually accompanied by angry grumbling.


There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.
