It is a shoulder-launched anti-tank weapon that is highly effective against personnel and vehicles. It must be reloaded after every shot and the player can only carry three rounds max. It has the blast radius of a grenade and kills most enemies with one direct hit, except for major bosses.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
In Uncharted 4: A Thief's End multiplayer, the RPG-7 is a heavy weapon. It has high damage, moderate accuracy recoil and a slow rate of fire. As this weapon is a heavy weapon, it has no modifications.
- Due to the grenade's low velocity, it's best to aim for the ground where your adversaries are standing, instead of aiming directly for them, as they might very well have moved a few feet when the grenade impacts.
- The RPG-7 in Uncharted 2 (and the M79 from Drake's Fortune) can be fired faster by quickly pressing left and right (switch to sidearm and back to RPG-7) as soon as it shows another rocket is in the chamber in the top right of the screen. This shortens the reload animation. This tactic is called reload cancel (doesn´t work in Uncharted 3).
- The RPG-7 (Hand-Held Anti-Tank Grenade Launcher version 7, Ruchnoy Protivotankovyy Granatomyot 7 in Russian) is one of the most common anti-tank weapons ever produced, appearing in most armed conflicts in the last half century. It is effective at defeating conventional armor, though it can encounter problems when used against modern reactive armor. The directed blast warhead is generally ineffective as a blast radius weapon, since it pushes most of its destructive energy into whatever surface it strikes, instead of spreading out spherically from the blast point.
- In reality, the RPG-7 would not travel in a straight line to its intended target depicted in game. The RPG-7's propulsion system makes it vulnerable to cross wind, making it inaccurate at extreme ranges.
- In real life, a wide blast radius can be achieved by using different types of rockets; the rockets used in the Uncharted series are more for blowing holes into a tank, not antipersonnel.
- The RPG has high blindfire accuracy, as the rocket travels directly where the camera is pointed.
- In Uncharted 3, the crosshairs spin when you fire the weapon.
- The RPG-7 appears as a weapon in the fighting game, Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale.
