Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm new here, so sorry if this is a stupid question.
Can slugga mobs (boyz) have big shootas or rokkit launchas in them?
Yes they can!
Personally though, I don't put any special weapons in slugga mobs, because they're either driving full speed in a truck, or spending every shooting phase running when I use them. Shoota boyz, however, I always load up with big shootas. Rokkits, not so much.
Normally I don't field big shootas in Slugga mobs, but recently I've been tossing them in. You don't have to run every turn, and 9 S5 shots is pretty good for only 15 points.
But, in answer to the OP, yes, you can field Big Shootas and/or Rokkit Launchas in your Slugga mobs.

I've been putting big shootas in units of 20-30 slugga boyz, just to give them something to do if assaulting isn't an option. It helps to keep them versatile, especially if you find yourself having to sit them on an objective.
I never put rokkits in units of boyz. They have short range and aren't likely to hit. I much rather put them on buggies, which can also race up and shoot at the sides/backs of enemy vehicles.

Take some big shootas, why not, they are good for you. Just remember...
NEVER EXPECT THE BIG SHOOTA
^^ My motto
It's from this one time when I destroyed a leman Russ with a single big shoota mounted on a trukk, long story... was well worth its 5 points to be honest

I'm not really sure what you mean by "Never Expect the Big Shoota"?? I mean, if you've equipped it on a unit...how can you not "expect" it? I could understand if you shoot your enemy and he's like "I wasn't Expecting you to take Big Shootas"...but how can you surprise yourself by not expecting somethign that you've already equipped?
(Sorry, if it sounds like I'm poking fun at you...I guess I am in a way, because think you're missing a word...but I'm not 100% sure what it is)
Although it was probably a comical and unexpected incident when it happened, repeating that feat again is largely against the odds! So I wouldn't take Big Shootas because it destroyed a tank once, unless it's for the shear comical memory.
