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):

Heavy Missiles

Heavy Missiles are the bigger brother versions of Rockets and Light Missiles. These can be fitted to cruises and battlecruisers. They deal greater damage than Rockets and Light Missiles however are most effective against larger vessels such as battlecruisers and battleships and not very effective against frigates.

There are two main types: Heavy Missiles and Heavy Assault Missiles. The Assault variation can inflict more damage however has a greatly reduced range relative to Heavy Missiles which can have great ranges (50+km).
