Below is an ICQ message of me asking A2597 how to stop the additional missile from shooting off. I could not find out where they were shooting.

[15:56] GA#2-666: hey...how do you get rid of the extra missiles that come out of the ow missile...I have it set for 1 missile and yet other missiles come off it???
[21:29] A2597: thats how its designed, there is a ohh...20% probability that the missile sets off a second one after it hits the tank.. Basically, once it hits it spawns a second missile, most of the time it will spawn inside the tank, or pointing downwards (= gone) however rarely it manages to set off another one that can attack another tank, which in turn can attack another. the most I've EVER seen killed by a single ow missile was 3 tanks, 80% of the time it only kills one
[21:30] GA#2-666: you are good...no wonder it is call an OW missile...LOL
[21:30] GA#2-666: very cool weapon
[21:32] A2597: it was actually a goof/luck that it worked out perfectly like that, I wanted it to do a double kill, however forgot to link to a second Ow missile projectile, so it called the same one. It worked flawlessly, as usually the person only gets one kill...its REALLY annoying...well...funny in a way, to see a single smoke trail that goes THROUGH your tank though...like the missile never stopped.

If you turn off the "collide" function with the ent value, a cruise (or any projectile for that matter) will keep on going for its entire "time to live". A cruise with a TTL of 5 mins could do as much damage as 50 kills

I actually like the randomness of this though...there is a CHANCE you will get more then one kill, your chances of no kills is VERY small, but your chances of multikills are not great...

setting a time to live with this weapon would be insane....it flyes like, 4 times as fast as the cruise and is MUCH more acurate, it can turn on a dime and out maneuver anything you can do...no hiding behind hills from this puppy....it will cream you.

Oh, wait, no. If tanks were ment to fly they would have been born with little bags of salted peanuts.
