- A dumbfire missile. Flies straight ahead and does not maneuver to target.

- The Snipe is a very limited guided missile. Its lock is easily broken by a ship's maneuvering ― in fact, you really can't hit anything that's moving with one of these. A Snipe does a fair amount of damage, but because it is so hard to hit anything that isn't standing still, you're limited to large, slow-moving targets with heavy shields and armor. The damage the Snipe can deliver is small compared to the amount such targets can withstand.
