In Battlefield 2142, the Mitchell AV-18 is the standard anti-vehicle rocket launcher of the European Union Army and is issued to the Engineer Kit. With each shot of the Mitchell, four rockets are fired and can be directed at the player's target (by continuing to hold ) as they travel in a tight group. Each rocket alone does less damage than the Pan-Asian Coalition Army Sudnik VP, but together they all do the same damage as the Sudnik.
On rare occasions, it is possible for each separate rocket to hit different targets, though this is only possible when dumbfired, and on targets that are generally in line with the targeting reticule. This behavior, along with each missile's ability to instantly kill infantry with a direct hit make the Mitchell very dangerous against tight infantry formations. The missiles do not inflict splash damage, similar to other rocket launchers in Battlefield 2142, but unlike other examples in the series.
- The Mitchell SAAW 86 shares the same model as the Mitchell AV-18 but has a darker carrying handle and butt-stock and slightly darker body. It also has a blue LCD display on the barrel while the AV-18 does not.
