The '''Desert Launcher''' is a 12 cannon mortar cut from ''Half-Life 2''.

==Overview==
*The Desert Launcher (the http//developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Brush brush name) can be found in the WC mappack demo map "combine_gallery_002.vmf", where it is near a Combine Launcher. There, it appears stored in a chamber under the ground level, completely sealed from the outside and completely invisible when idle. When the player reaches its location, it unexpectedly rises from the ground and starts firing.

*Given its name, it was likely to be used against the player in the Wasteland.

*While the Launcher shoots rockets, the model is that of a Flare Gun|flare.
