    then I remembered it was used by this guy called RNG Hussian (or something like that idk) from some other utubers vids

    the sad truth is: I need help! Missiles are so hard to use rn!!! the rare times where I do hit is sweet! when I see all those numbers stacked up in yellow its pure joy. But like 70% of the time is just 35 dmg or none at all! S.O.S!

    calling all missiles users and pros...help a brudda chungus out here

    edit: I have watched missile guides online but they don't rly help

    Practice! Practice! Practice!

    It’ll take time, it’ll get annoying, it’ll get even more annoying, it’ll become so frustrating that you might want to just scrap it!

    But if you practice for long enough and gain that muscle memory, you’ll learn where to aim and launch your missiles appropriately without a second thought!

    You should get better with practice. You'll get more familiar with their launch speed and lead requirements.
    Try to aim at targets traveling perpendicular to your turret (the missiles spread out like that) and if you can help it, only shoot if you can see you enemy and where they're going.
    It's also not a bad idea to shoot right after an enemy nitroes — if a player had good reflexes they'll have time to nitro away before the shot hits. If you time your shot this way their nitro will be cooling down.
    Also — as far as I know there's no pattern to the spread. They can't really be relied upon too much, from what I've seen.
    @TheAntiSnipe has made a help guide here.

    Hope this helps! Missiles are super fun to use when they hit well.

    Like others have said, practice is the key. Leading your ML shots is just like leading shots with a mortar, except the projectile hits home way faster. So you can't lead as much — that's the tricky part.
    Another thing I'd say is : get used to and accept the scattering. There is a random part in it that can be frustrating, sometimes spreading your missiles everywhere around your target instead of onto it, but it's there and you can't control it. So sometimes its gonna bite you in the butt, but other times you'll get lucky. You just have to accept it.
