- "Infrared and guided fire-and-forget missile launcher. For all your moving target needs."
- — In-game description.
The weapon is a shoulder-fired surface-to-air (SAM) missile launcher, based on the FIM-92 Stinger. As such, it has the unique ability of targeting vehicles, both ground and air. Its targeting system is similar to the missiles found on the Buzzard and the P-996 LAZER, being able to lock-on to selected targets indicated by an outlined box. It can also be fired freely without any targets. It is similar to the Heat Seeking Rocket Launcher from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The projectiles fired by the Homing Launcher are very fast and can easily chase down a P-996 LAZER in flight. The missiles can destroy or disable aircraft in only one hit, making them useful for anti-air purposes. However, it takes approximately 2-3 seconds to acquire lock-on to a target.
- Available in all three protagonist weapon inventory after the update is installed (Only PS3 and X360 version)
- Available in Ammu-Nation after Minor Turbulence is completed in the campaign. (Only PS4 and Xbox One version)
