The guided missiles have just been added back to the game from the vault of weapons that have been removed from the games and it is the best time to learn about the weapon.
So if you want some helpful tips about it, read them below:
Pick Up Ally:
One of the coolest things that you can do with a guided missile is you can actually pick your ally up through it and then move it across the area. This can be used for various purposes but one of the best purpose is to transport your downed ally to safety or at your location and then you can revive him. This is best if your ally is left out in the open and you cannot go there as you will be shot down as well. So the safest way is by using the guided missile as you just need to take it through your ally and it will pick them up.
Fire in the Open:
Whatever you do, do not fire this weapon when you are out in the open as it will leave you completely vulnerable. This is because once you have fired this weapon, you will be controlling it and that means you will not be able to move. And if you are not able to move, that leaves you completely stranded and you will be open to be attacked by an enemy. If that happens, you will get killed easily. So what you need to do instead is to take over at a place where you are safe to operate the missile.
Another thing that you should be aware of is that the missile does not travel fast so that means it can be easily avoided. Meaning that an enemy who sees the missile coming to him can just step aside and the missile will pass by them. This is the reason that you should include the element of surprise when you are firing the missile. So what you need to do is to guide your missile around in a way that does not alert them and you can easily hurt them.
The best thing that you can do with your missile is to ride it. It is one of the coolest things available with this weapon and you will have a lot of fun riding it. So what you can do is that you can just fire the missile while you are at a ground that makes it easy for the missile to pick you up like the top of the ramp. And then position it at your feet in a way that makes it easy for the missile to pick you up and then when it is near your feet, exit the control and it will pick you up.
These are some of the tips that you need to keep in mind when you are using a guided missile. This is indeed one of the best weapons in the Fortnite Battle Royale.
