Star Wars Battlefront
A homing rocket launcher that locks on to enemy soldiers from afar.
This star card locks onto enemies. Once locked on, the player will receive a message that they're being locked on with a rocket. If the locked on player doesn't find cover, they will be instantly killed by the rocket if they are not using the Bacta Bomb or Bodyguard trait.
Considering how common both Bacta Bomb and the Bodyguard Trait both are, the Homing Shot works in its prime versus weakened enemies at a distance. Considering it has zero damage drop-off, it has real merit at range; at closer ranges, its forced lock-on sequence makes the user completely immobile and vulnerable, consequently susceptible to any form of damage, so using it on outdoor maps of a good size is useful with Homing Shot. Staying near a friendly spawn is a good place to stay, or near friendly, heavily-guarded objectives.
