The Striker is always going to have lower DPS and alpha than the other rocket launchers. Without proper lock-on it's going to have to have other advantages to make it balanced. Personally I would buff damage per rocket a little, fix the infantry resistance and tighten up the hipfire CoF. For damage against Maxes and Ground Vehicles 5 Striker rockets is roughly equivalent to 1 Decimator rocket at the moment. I think this isn't sufficient given the difficulty of landing multiple Striker rockets without getting killed and the overall lower DPS and alpha. I think 4 Striker rockets = 1 Decimator rocket would be a good starting point. This would give the Striker an advantage in DPM (1.25 Decimators per mag) and loadout (6.25 Decimators per loadout) to compensate for its poor DPS, alpha and the difficulty of being exposed to land multiple rockets. Against infantry the resistance is messed up at the moment. It's taking 8 rockets to get a kill. This should be fixed. I think 3 rockets for a kill is fair (4 with flak armour), given that the other rockets still one-shot people. Splash damage should be negligible like the Fracture. The hipfire CoF should be tightened, right now it's about as bad as the other launchers which I think is unfair given the difficulty of landing multiple hits while exposed. If hipfire is improved it will give the Striker more of a role at closer ranges / more dangerous situations where hipfire strafe speed is useful. Against aircraft the Striker is going to be worse than before, but still a decent deterrent to hovering ESFs. The damage is probably fine where it is, at 12 shots to kill. Hopefully with the improvements I'm recommending the Striker will overall be a decent choice. Not the best against Maxes or vehicles or aircraft or infantry but a good all-rounder with a lot of damage per loadout to make an impact. TLDR: boost damage so that landing 5 rockets on a Max or Ground Vehicle = 1.25 Decimators. Infantry should be 3 shot kill (4 with full flak). Tighten hipfire CoF. Anti-air damage is probably fine as-is.
