Backstory[edit | edit source]
Rocket was a hardened soldier known for his explosive temper. He fought bravely among the Scargi until he actually lost his head while cleaning his rocket launcher. Rocket being known for his cursing and vulgar language was given an advanced head prosthetic with profanity filter. Afterwards he was promoted to commander of the Scarg emperor security. Rehabilitating in the court the commander found a new team of misfits to command, who he would train to become the Rocket Renegades.
Until 3584 when disaster struck. The team was sent to prison by the Emperor for the audacious crime of planning to salt his dinner. A highly deadly substance for the sensitive snail-like Scargos. The Renegades were actually just eating fries they had salted with the salty seals they illegally had been hiding in their quarters.
After a brief spell in prison, the team quickly broke free, dispersing across the galaxy. All waiting for the commander to reunite them and exact their plans for revenge. They have the weapons. They have their mission. All they need now are allies. It's time for them to call: the Awesomenauts.
NEW premium skin: Commander Cook-it[edit | edit source]
Serving the Scargi Emperor was one of the happiest times in the life of Commander Rocket. Not only was he allowed to lead his Renegades into battle in service of the Scargo race, he also spent a lot of his time in the palace kitches to enjoy his third-greatest passion: cooking (the others being fighting and cursing). None of the Scargo cooks initially thought much of the little guy, but with a little help from a tiny companion he found in the pantry, he quickly turned out to be able to create beautiful banquets and majestic meals from the simplest ingredients. This is a paid DLC and comes with a fully customized voice set and a portrait!
