The Shovel Launcher is launcher-type weapon in Far Cry 5. It takes the appearance of the standard RPG-7, but fires a rocket-propelled shovel instead.

The Shovel Launcher uses special launcher ammo, the Shovel Rounds, which can be rarely found as loot, or purchased for $60 per round. Unlike the RPG-7 rounds, and much like the normal Shovel, they can be retrieved after use and re-fired freely - granted the shovel does not splinter on a hit like a melee shovel sometimes might.

The Shovel Launcher cannot be modified, and lacks an optical sight, instead relying solely on steel sights.
