GeneralEdit

HEXmissile

HEX Missile.

The HEX Missile is a ship explosive weapon. It serves as the ship counterpart of the Plasma Missile Turret

They fire red bolts of plasma with moderate firepower at medium ranges. They are versatile explosive weapons, common amongst low to mid level players. 

Strategy and Setup Edit

Advantages: Edit

Like Scatter missiles, are very similar to in terms of functions. They have higher range, firepower and splash damage, making them excellent successors.

HEX missiles being quite versatile in both point blank ranges and still fire at ships at medium ranges, they are suitable for almost any hull like cruisers, frigates and battleships at low level fleets. They have no minimum firing range restrictions, so they are able to attack ships no matter how close they are.

Disadvantages: Edit

While HEX missiles have good range, they frequently miss their targets at its maximum ranges, particularly if the target is moving. The nature of how the bolts are being spread when fired does not help with its accuracy at range.

While it does have improved firepower, its damage output is moderate at best in comparison with other weapons. It is relatively heavy as well. They are replaced by SICO missiles and Hydra missiles, both of which weapons are more suited for medium range.

TriviaEdit

  • The oldest picture model of the HEX missile is now the current design for the Polaron Ray, with a slightly changed color scheme.
  • The HEX Missile III's build time is the HEX Missile II's build time, multiplied by 3.
  • The HEX Missile IV's build time is the HEX Missile III's build time, multiplied by 2.
  • The HEX Missile V's build time is the HEX Missile IV's build time, multiplied by 2.
  • The HEX Missile I and II's antimatter costs are both 0.
  • The HEX Missile II's repair time is the HEX Missile I's repair time, multiplied by 3.
  • the sound effect and the explosive charges launched by the HEX Missile bears a little reference to the Photon Torpedoes from Star Trek
  • HEX Missile III is required to unlock the SICO missile I blueprint.
