The Sheep Strike is a weapon that first appeared in Worms: The Director's Cut. It is an Air Strike weapon which drops five Sheep on the terrain. Each Sheep bounces once on the terrain, exploding, and then disappears on the second bounce, in a similar explosion. It is considered a super weapon because it can kill many worms.
In Worms 2, it is renamed Confused Sheep Strike. In Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party, it is renamed French Sheep Strike. In this version, the Sheep are on fire and will expel flames after the first bounce, while the French national anthem ("La Marseillaise") plays in the background.

This exceptionally powerful strike weapon leaves behind it an amazing trail of destruction, often resulting in a high number of deaths too if used correctly. Simply select a chosen area on the landscape that contains enemy Worms and simply deploy our fluffy friends who will happily bounce around for a few seconds, Sheeping the enemy!
Each Sheep can cause up to 100 points of damage.
- A Sheep Strike may be fired without aiming.
- It's possible to preselect the Sheep Strike in mid-jump.
- The Sheep Strike makes a cameo during the mission Ice, Ice Maybe in Worms 3D.
- In Mayhem and Clan Wars, the Bovine Blitz works somewhat like it. But instead, it drops 3 cows (5 in Clan Wars), and the player can choose the position for where the cows are dropped.
