Don't you mean "Throat Wolf"? ;-)

It's true I tell you! Whoever sent you that info strung you a line,
though - besides the obvious typo, they misquoted it. Here's the
Card: Rocker Launcher
Text: If played as a Stinger, trash at end of turn.
1Y: Trash one of your Rockers. Runner gains
+2*X/+0 where X = Rocker's Attack Value + Body.
The art shows a troll stuffing a squirming rocker (Thrash, I think)
into a sort of big bazooka.
I think it was meant as a promo, but got mixed in to the regular
set by mistake, so I've only managed to get ahold of 3 - anybody
have an extra to spare?
