Missile launchers are powerful weapons that fire missiles which ignores shields and do damage directly to the target's hull, systems, and crew. Missile launchers require system power and consume 1 missile ammunition unit per weapon use. Most missile weapons fire one shot. However, those that fire more still only use one missile in a single use. The Zoltan shield can block missiles but receives the base damage for the missile; for example, the Hull Missile does 2 damage to a Zoltan shield regardless of where you aimed it. Missiles can also be shot down by Defense Drones. All missiles except for the Swarm launcher use room-based targeting, while the swarm uses room-centered area targeting similar to a flak weapon. All missiles have the chance to light fires, cause hull breaches, and stun crew.

See the available Missiles.

MissilesEdit

Note: Missiles go through all regular shields (an obvious exception being Zoltan Energy shields) so they are effective at taking out systems on an enemy ship, but be wary of defence drones.
