The Plasma Missile is the first of many Plasma-type weapons used by Ancient Aliens. Its projectiles travel slowly until they hit an enemy or reach 5,500 m range, then dive quickly (6,500 m/s) towards their targets. Note that the weapon only deals damage during the dive phase.
While this weapon has a very long cooldown, its damage per shot is quite high, dealing enough damage to one-shot a Diffuser Shield III in a single volley. Its +25% shield bypass also greatly increases the damage passed through the shields.
The Plasma Missile is used by Ancient Reapers. Each Ancient Reaper only carries a single Plasma Missile, but it is already more than enough to cause major damage from extreme range.
During the dive phase, the missiles home in towards their targets, so dodging won't get you anywhere here.
Regenerating shields work great against the Plasma Missiles as it has a long cooldown, more than enough for the shields to fully recharge, provided that the shield does not deplete fully from the attack.
Plasma resistance can reduce the armor damage taken from this weapon.
- The Plasma Missile was first introduced into the game during the AXIS event preview, in Ancient Reaper Fleets. Back then there was no Plasma resistance, so many players complained about the massive damage output of the Plasma Missiles.
