Overview

These skills are important for anyone who uses missile launchers. Training missile skills will be key for most Caldari combat pilots, but some Minmatar and Amarr ships use missiles too, as secondary or even as primary weapons.

Perception and Willpower are important for perfecting your skill at missiles.

The following are the skills in the Missiles section (in alphabetical order):

Support skills

These skills are generally not needed to fit hardware (there are a couple of exceptions, which are noted) but support missile deployment and maximise damage. Increasing the level in any of these skills will increase your proficiency with missiles.
