I get good mileage out of them. Having started 40k as a Tau player, I wanted my Rhinos to do something besides move. I like to put Havoc launchers on them and then escort my squads, blocking critical lines of sight and focusing 4 or 6 blast templates on whatever seems vulnerable. By themselves they aren't worth it but if you like to play tactically with your transports then the launchers will get their points back without too much fuss.
Try putting a Havoc on a Dreadnought with TL heavy bolters for some serious anti-personnel firepower.

This thread has already been started a month ago, you should have done some search.
I use havoc launchers on dreadnoughts as when they go fire frenzy, it add 4 blast attacks which can be ravaging in infantry. I use it with my World Eater and Death Guard armies.
I also use a havoc launcher in my WE army, on a rhino, because khorne is in desperate need of ranged weapons and is vulnerable to long range attack. The havoc launcher become usefull to kill sniper squads that are too far away for my berzerkers to get rid of, or to hunt Devastator / Havoc Squads. It's not often that they will try to shoot the rhino as there are 3 berzerkers squads that are comming for their troops.

A havoc launcher on a rhino is a good cheap missle weapon, that blocks LOS.
Also I once ran a dread with the TL lascannon, missle laucnher arm, AND a havoc missle launcher upgrade. Talk about a mobile weapons platform, it made it's points back easy.
hands down the havoc launcher is one of the most wicked anti infantry weapons in the chaos army. I use one standard on my preds for killing anything squishey ( ie, not in power armor ) It does has it's limitations ; for instance I would not put one on any model that wasn't hunting infantry. I have discovered that the high number of wounds it can cause can even help against really dug in or powered armored infantry.
