Fires a volley of violently explosive missiles. What more could you possibly want from a weapon?
Missile Launcher is an area damage weapon that launches 5 missiles. It fires in arcs similar to mortars, but rather than projecting a single area it projects several smaller areas that diverge the further it is aimed. Missile Launcher also fires relatively faster than mortars, especially in close range.
Before the 4.0 update, it received a majority of its talents from Blastian's talent tree.
It is advised to equip the Missile Launcher exclusive damage perks. Given the long range of the weapon, it can be used to harass enemies at long range, but be aware that the spread of the weapon will spread the damage over an area rather than a concentrated point, and its long cooldown will leave you open if you decide to move into close range. Where the Missile Launcher really shines is hitting in close range, the spread of the missiles is reduced and with practice a single target can be hit with multiple missiles for devastating damage. Because of its fast projectile speed, it is a viable alternative to mortars for hitting Speeders and fast moving Enforcers. However, be aware that a Missile Launcher is not an effective idea for long range sneakerstrikes. Also, it is almost useless in point blank range. If you're planning to hit a Defender with high defense, be aware that a Defender can resist missile fire. The most vulnerable targets are low-HP Shooters. Fixers, however, are not recommended targets.
