General[edit | edit source]

The Cascade Missile is a cross between the Arc Missile and the Manifold Missile, firing a trio of projectiles that each, on impact, branches out into subprojectiles.

Upon detonation, each primary missile splits into three secondary missiles around 12 degrees apart, which travel for 1,000 m at 1,500 m/s with a smaller explosion.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

This weapon has medium range and no minimum range, allowing it to be viable on all three roles - Fighter, Titan and Ranger.

The Cascade Missile has the potential to deal extra damage via its secondary projectiles against large targets such as carriers, dreadnoughts and The Bridge.

Moreover, this weapon has a decent AoE which, combined with its splitting effect, can be used to reliably damage multiple enemies at once.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Cascade Missile has a slight spread, which decreases its effectiveness against single targets towards its maximum range. Moreover, you have to hit at least 2 of the secondary missiles in addition to all 3 of the primary ones to reach 100% of the listed DPS.

It lacks the Predictive Aim ability of the Nova Driver, and thus may not be as accurate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Cascade Missile deals 31.5% DPS for the primary missile and 5.5% for each secondary missile, resulting in a total of 111% DPS.
