Missiles are secondary weapons mounted on fighters, increasing their firepower and combat flexibility. Each fighter has a number of missile hardpoints that can carry one or more missiles (depending on their type).

Game files mention six other missiles: Stalker, Blazer, Iron Tooth, Death Claw, Brute, and Hell Fire, but these have no stats associated with them.

1 60 220 200 500 0.14 100 5 s 20% Available since the beginning. Although you only get one, it's an excellent dogfighting missile until you gain access to the Raptor (mission 12).

Havoc
1 80 300 - 400 0.16 100 3 s 20% Electromagnetic pulse missile. Deals no damage, but releases a shock-wave that temporarily disables all fighters in range, sending them spinning wildly. Can knock out groups of ships but makes them difficult to kill due to a combination of disabled fighters rapidly rotating their shield facings and it confuses the lead cursor which is calculated by speed from the nose. The lead cursor in particular makes it almost impossible to hit disabled ships if you have blind fire enabled.

1 80 2500 2500 240 0.1 100 6 s 40% A scaled-down torpedo mounted on Alliance fighters. Unsuitable for use against other fighters, intended for use against corvettes, large ships, and special mission objectives.

Vagabond.png
Vagabond
1 100 500 350 600 0.12 140 4 s 20% Superior dogfighting missile. Sacrifices maneuverability for damage and ability to retain its homing even against cloaked targets like Kamovs and Basilisks.
