You should fire it at enemies that are slow or are frozen so the fire missile can hit the enemy. you should not try to fire it at fast enemies or enemies that like to make sharp and fast turns a lot because it will usually miss them. Homing missile: This weapon is a missile that when fired, homes almost always directly on an enemy. When an enemy is hit, it does light damage. You can fire it at any enemy as long as your enemy isn't close to the side of your vehicle because it will start to home in on the enemy and then just pass the enemy. Power missile: This weapon is a missile that when fired, does major damage and pushes the enemy a few feet away when it hits an enemy. Although it does major damage, it does not home into an enemy so when you fire it, you must hit the enemy with perfect timing, or while he is frozen. This is also the perfect weapon to make someone fall from a cliff to their death (unless they use the hyperspace move)if they are near a cliff, as the missile makes the opponent fly away from you a few feet. Speed missile: This weapon is a missile that when fired, does minor damage and does not home in on the enemy. however, this is a very fast missile and if you hold down the weapon firing button, it will launch multiple missiles that will bombard your enemy. Rain missile: This weapon is a missile that when fired, goes forward a few feet and the rains fire on the enemy.The missile homes in very slightly on the enemy and does minor damage. It won't work in rooms with a very low ceiling, as it will hit the ceiling and catch you on fire. Rain 2 missile: This weapon is a missile that when fired, shoots high in the air and then shoots fireballs that home in on the enemy and catch the enemy on fire. This weapon does light damage to the enemy.Again, as with the Rain missile, this will not work in rooms with low ceilings, as it will hit the ceiling and catch you on fire. MIRV: This weapon is a missile that when fired, shoots high in the air and then releases multiple missiles that home in on the enemy and do moderate damage. This weapon does not work in rooms with low ceilings. Mortar: This weapon is a projectile that when fired, shoots up in the air, does an arc and hits the enemy, and causes moderate to major damage. The weapon homes in slightly in the enemy Napalm: Same as mortar, but instead it is a flaming fireball that, when it hits an opponent, causes slow, moderate damage, and catches the enemy on fire. This weapon homes in on the enemy. Lightning: This weapon when fired, produces lightning that, when any enemies are in the vicinity of the lightnings' range, strikes the enemy and causes extreme damage to the enemies. But be careful. If you are in the vicinity of its range, you'll be struck too. Ricochet bomb: This weapon is a bomb that when fired, ricochets around the area until it hits an enemy. the longer it is out in the arena, the stronger it gets. Be watchful when you fire it though. It can hit you as well. Proximity mine: This weapon is a mine that when fired, drops under your car. after a few seconds, if an enemy (or you) gets close to it, the mine will explode, causing moderate damage to the enemy. Remote bomb: This weapon is a bomb that is set on the ground. When a car is close enough, you can detonate it and cause severe damage to the enemy. But don't detonate it when your near it or you'll get severe damage as well. Freeze bomb. This is the same as a remote bomb, except when it is detonated it freezes any opponents near it (that includes you). Auto lob: This weapon is a missile that when fired, shoots high in the air, and lets out small bombs that home in slightly on the enemy in front of you. this weapon causes high damage. 3. The Other Weapons. Freeze attack: Left, Right, Up, Up. This move freezes an opponent that this attack happens to home into. This has about the same homing ability as a homing missile. Rear Freeze attack: Left, Right, Down, Down. This is the same as a freeze attack, but this comes from the rear of your vehicle. Massive attack: Up, Down, Up, Down, Up. This move attack your opponent and causes severe damage to the enemy. This is the order of the missiles (I may be wrong): Freeze, Fire missile, Power missile, Homing missile, MIRV missile, MIRV missile. Rear Massive attack: Up, Down, Up, Down, Down. Same as a Massive attack, but this comes from the rear of your vehicle. Rear attack: Right, Left, Down. This unleashes a weapon (fire missle, special weapon, etc.) from the rear of your vehicle. 4. Weapon Strategies. These are strategies that I use in TM4: Go through a portal and when you get teleported, drop a couple proximity mines or a remote bomb in the area that you are teleported. When an enemy goes through the portal and lands on a mine (or when you detonate the remote bomb), the enemy will get blasted and will be damaged greatly. When you use Orbital or Mr. Zombie, when an opponent gets near a cliff, like the platform of the oil rig, unleash your special. it will drag them off of the cliff and they will fall to their death. also when an opponent is near a cliff, you can shoot a power missile or a ricochet bomb and blast them off of the cliff. Use the shield move as a weapon. turn on the shield (up, up, right) and then hit your opponent with everything you've got. Another use for this is when an opponent is near a cliff, just plain ram them off and make them fall to thier death. 5. Cheats. Infinite life: Triangle, L1, Down, Triangle, Up. 99 Massive missiles: Start, Up, R1, L1, R1. Unlock Sweet Tooth (just 2 of his specials can kill any opponent): Start, R1, Right, Right, Left.
