General[edit | edit source]

The Nova Missile is an explosive weapon designed by the Umbra. It fires twin missiles with a fixed spread in between them which then explode into secondary missiles much Like the Nova Cannon.

Each primary missile explodes into 5 secondary shots each 72 degrees apart, which travel for 900 m at a speed of 4,000 m/s. They can pierce up to two ships (and hit the third).

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Nova Missile can deal widespread explosive damage to enemy ships due to the number of times it explodes. It also has a relatively decent range, on par with the Vector Torpedo. The missiles also travel relatively fast in combat.

It has a relatively large AoE Radius as well, which can be supplemented by equipping specials such as Volatile Fuel. Its speed can also be increased with the help of Neutrino Fusion, or it can be granted Shield Bypass with Palladium Munition.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

There is a noticeable amount of spread in between the 2 missiles it launches with each volley, ships can take advantage of this and hide within the space of both missiles, allowing them to close in on the enemy ship with this weapon and get in firing range. The spread is wide enough to allow a single ship to pass through. The weapon also has a large minimum range as well.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Nova Missile's primary and secondary projectiles deal a total of 100% and 120% DPS respectively.
  • The Nova Missile is the first Explosive weapon utilized by the Umbra.
  • The Nova Missile is the first Explosive weapon that works like the Energy weapon itself.
  • This weapon was retroactively unlocked to the Altairians in the first January 2019 update.
