The Homing Missile is a weapon that has been available since the first Worms game. It's somewhat similar to the Bazooka, but this weapon is able to home at targets. It is the most basic homing weapon.
The Homing Missile is an effective weapon to reach those hard to get targets. It is usually in short supply, so only use it when you really need it.
Remember that when you fire the Missile it will take about a second or so to lock onto the target. Be sure to use this time to fire the Missile away from or around any possible obstruction between yourself and the target.
Once locked on, the Homing Missile will only search for the target for about 5 seconds, after this it will lose power and drop to the ground gradually, so make sure your target isn't too far away. Unlike the Bazooka, the Homing Missile isn't affected by wind.

Using the Homing Missile
Simply place the target on the place you wish to hit. After placing the target, you shoot the missile like a Bazooka, you charge it, unlike the Homing Pigeon or Patsy's Magic Bullet. This is because the homing missile can only turn at very small angle, so if the enemy is behind a hill/mountain/pillar, you have to shoot the missile above the terrain, or else, it will just hit the terrain. The missile will fly like a bazooka for 1 second, and then it flies directly at its target, without dodging any object. The homing missile will explode on impact with a worm or any other object. The homing missile does a maximum of 45 damage. Keep in mind that the homing missile is not affected by wind and gravity.
- If the target is behind an object, the missile will crash into that object. It will not dodge things.
- The Homing missile can travel under water, but this is rarely the best solution.
- If the target is close, the missile will strike more precisely.
- In Worms 4: Mayhem, the Homing Missile could not be aimed lower than the bottom half of the screen through first person mode. This error was fixed in Worms: Ultimate Mayhem.
