Wings of LibertyEdit

In Wings of Liberty, seeker missiles were a projectile with normal speed. When it got within a range of 2 of a target, it would speed toward it becoming impossible to avoid. However, if the target was able to keep out of that range, the seeker missile would break down harmlessly.[6]
