Revision as of 14:43, 6 January 2020

Missile weapons come in two flavors, long-range missiles (LRM​) and short-range missiles (SRM​). Missile batteries have a number next to them; this tells you how many missiles will fire when you use that weapon. The LRM-10 weapon fires ten long-range missiles; the SRM-2 fires just two short-range missiles.

SRMs are like shotguns, peppering many locations on the target mech with each blast. While they will have a harder time punching through armor than a laser or autocannon, if that armor is cracked or thin they can devastate them by blowing up internal systems. The same mass devoted to LRM launchers will give a mech the ability to strike at a great distance, although they will deal less damage overall.

  • LRMs also can fire at targets that you don’t have a direct line-of-sight (LOS) to, which you’ll recognize by the curved arc shape of the red line of fire.
  • Pound for pound, missiles deal more Stability Damage than the other weapon types.
  • The larger the size number of a launcher, the faster it chews through ammo.
  • Carrying enough ammunition for at least ten blasts is sufficient for most normal combat situations. For weapons that are likely to be able to fire on a target every turn, like LRMs, fifteen salvoes should be enough.
  • Some mechs carry far more ammunition than they need. An SRM2, SRM4 or LRM5 with a ton of ammo all to itself is a waste.

List

Short Range Missiles

All SRM shots deal above-average stability impact per hit compared to other weapons. There are three basic types of SRMs:

  • SRM2: A tiny rack of Short-Range Missiles that deal little damage but also cost almost nothing in the way of weight, space, heat, or ammunition consumption.
  • SRM4: The midtier rack of Short-Range Missiles which deal good damage for comparatively few negatives other than their inherently short range and need for ammunition.
  • SRM6: Largest available rack of Short-Range Missiles and pack considerable punch while also being lightweight.

Long-Range Missiles

A double rack of LRM5 and LRM15 on a Griffin.

There are four kinds of missile racks, all of which are capable of indirect fire.

  • LRM5: The smallest rack of Long-Range Missiles are very mass-efficient and tend to serve as harassment weapons.
  • LRM10: This launcher has supporting fire role when mounted on most units, with fairly low damage balanced by low heat and ammunition consumption.
  • LRM15: These units deal substantial damage and stability impact over distance, and can be found in pairs on indirect-fire support mechs.
  • LRM20: Often found as the secondary weapon on heavier mechs, these massive launchers are heavy and chew through ammunition, but their impact is impossible to ignore.
