Drill Rocket


Have you ever wondered what happens if a dentist gets into rocket science? You are about to find out!

Use this weapon to teach your enemies a lesson if they think they can play hide-and-seek with you!


The drill rocket is similar to a bazooka, but instead of just exploding on contact it will drill into the surface of the map and dig a straight tunnel.

The drill rocket will explode when:

  • leaving the soil it was shot into
  • hitting a hedgehog
  • having drilled for 5 seconds


  • Maximum damage: 50
  • Explosion timer: 5s (after it started drilling)
  • Charge to shoot: Yes
  • Affected by wind: Yes (while travelling through air)
  • Ends turn: Yes
  • Retreat time: 3s
  • Crate type: Weapon

How to use

Hold the Attack key (default: space bar) to charge the drill rocket and shoot it.


  • You can shoot with various guns through the drill rocket tunnel! But don't forget: so can your enemy!
  • If you have a portable portal device, you can shoot through a drill rocket tunnel to get to the other side
  • You can drop mines through vertical tunnels created by the drill rocket


  • In old releases there was a bug which caused the drill rocket to explode immediatly if fired directly into a wall (without distance to the shooting hog). This has been fixed.


  • Release 0.9.8: Drill rocket added to the game
