The Soldier fondly remembering his origins

The Original is a promotional primary weapon for the Soldier. Styled after the weapon from Quake, it is a bulky, tan Rocket Launcher with a metallic tubular back-end, a metallic handle and a tan handle, and a distinctive, oversized barrel.

This weapon functions like the Rocket Launcher, yet has additional cosmetic changes. As with the launcher in Quake, the Original's first-person view model is in the bottom-center of the screen, and rockets are launched straight into the crosshair. The Soldier holds the weapon normally in third-person view.

The Original was awarded in Genuine quality to players who purchased Quake 4 on Steam before August 8, 2011 – 10AM PDT.
