The Missile Launcher is an unlockable weapon on Star Fox: Assault. This powerful weapon is unlocked by playing five matches in the Versus Mode.
The Missile Launcher is different from other explosive based weapons, as its direction and movements are able to be remote controlled. Once a missile is fired, the player firing it will remain vulnerable until the Missile explodes or collides with something. It can also be self-destructed by pressing the firing button.
Wing riding is possible in a team match using this weapon in a similar fashion to the Plasma Cannon.
