Weapons of the homing missile type are very similar to the Missile type weapons except that they fire guided missiles rather non-guided missiles. Homing Missiles must lock onto a target before the missile will fire. Once locked on two green brackets appear to the left and right of the screen, a player can then turn slightly before firing, and because they track, the missiles will curve around obstacles if aimed correctly.
Homing Missiles will always hit the target if there is no obstacle between your weapon and the target. Aphids are the exception to this rule as they have low accuracy against fast robots.
