The Cruise Missile is a Weapon introduced in Genesis: Part 1 and also available on Genesis: Part 2.


The Cruise Missile is a one time use weapon that can be launched and guided to a target. After firing, the missile must be activated again, after which it will continue to fly in the direction it is facing until it hits something.
