Samus Aran using the Ship Missiles to destroy a Maldium gate.
|Featured in||Metroid Prime 3: Corruption|
|Effect(s)||Destroys enemies and artificial objects within the room.|
|Special uses||To destroy Maldium and the Leviathan Shield Generators of Bryyo.|
The Ship Missile allows Samus Aran's gunship to fire missiles at a ground target using the Command Visor. This can be used to destroy objects made of Maldium, or to damage all enemies in an open area. The Ship Missile begins with 3 missiles, and can be expanded using Ship Missile Expansions to fire up to 11 missiles. Ship Missiles can only be found in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
Ship Missiles are mostly used in Bryyo for destroying a Space Pirate construction site, another destroying a Maldium barricade, and the two Leviathan Shield Generators. It is also used once in the Pirate Homeworld to destroy a Maldium door leading to the Leviathan core. The Missiles can also be used in any open field to attack enemies.
Though it is capable of killing any kind of enemy on a single bombing run (including the Berserker Knight), this weapon cannot damage creatures in Hypermode or Space Pirates with their shields up. The Missiles do not need to actually hit the enemy in order to kill them. However, they may take cover under buildings (most noticeable in Cargo Dock B).
If no enemy is present in an area where the Ship Missiles can be used, the Command Visor will say there is no valid target.
- When the Ship Missiles are used against an object, there will be a target. However, when used on enemies, Samus does not need to target anything.
- Strangely, the Ship Missiles do not harm Samus, even when she is in their line of fire.
