Missile guide (page 1 of 8)

In this guide I will explain about the different missiles and what they do in X3TC.
There are so many missiles in X3TC, so your bound to be confused by them at the start.

Tracking types
Dumbfire: The missile does not track targets and will travel in a straight line from a ship,
Yes: Standard missile tracking: does not lock onto new targets,
Heat: Automatically locks onto a ship, does not re-target,
Prox: Explodes when in proximity of target,
Automatic: Finds its own target (missiles, mines, ships etc.) and re-targets,
