Missiles are a secondary weapon for your ship in Rodina, and the first secondary weapon that the player is likely to find. They are found in red and black rectangle crates near encryption key beacons. They are usually found two or five at a time, and can be found on all planets and asteroids near where encryption keys are found. Missiles fire slowly (they are able to be outrun at cruising speed), travel long distances, do high damage to ships that they hit, and automatically lock on to nearby targets. They can be shot and destroyed mid-flight by standard lasers. Xeno Bombers and Battleships carry missiles, and usually fire them when the first start to move on the player's ship.
