Guided Missiles are a pickup item featured in WDL Thundertanks. When fired, the player takes direct control of a missile, allowing them to scout the arena for their intended target. The missile has a limited flight time before it expires- after that point it will continue flying in the direction it was facing until it either hits something or leaves the map. Due to the player taking direct control, caution is advised prior to using this item- as it leaves the tank stationary and thus highly vulnerable to attack. Making use of inaccessible areas (Water for the Dragonfly for example), an out of the way area (Although this may not be effective against human players if the Radar is enabled) or using mines and or autocannons to form a safe place to deploy it from, or the making use of the Wraith- which is invisible when immobile, affording it a good degree of protection.
