A super fast missile that deals massive damage.
The 🇱🇨 Piercing Missile is the fastest unit in the Universe along with the 🇲🇴 Observer and it can be used for both attacking and defending. It has the capacity to destroy any unit weaker than the 🇬🇮 Battlecruiser in one single hit, at the cost of destroying itself.
Piercing Missiles act the same as any other unit, the main difference is their massive Speed, zero Cargo capacity and that they have 1 Health, so even a non-offensive unit such as the Observer can destroy it.
As a “single-use” unit, their cost is extremely high compared to other units so it is not a recommended unit to build when you are low on resources. It can, however, be used in several different strategies such as quickly wiping out an enemy before he detects you with his radars or to maim a very strong raider to scare him from attacking you again.
Another good strategy is to mix 🇱🇨 Piercing Missiles with other cheap (and ideally fast) units such as 🇲🇴 Observers that will act as blockers/fodder. Making enemy units target the fodders and not the Missiles will give the Missiles an extra attack turn which can be invaluable in certain situations.
