It's a pretty good point defense in FreeSpace 1, but unlikely to actually bring down anything. By FreeSpace 2, however, it's hardly of any use.


The most annoying thing about the FighterKiller in FS1 was its tendency to knock your fighter for a loop; it does this much less often in FS2.


FighterKillers are good to distract your attention a bit. While your HUD is ticking like hell, you'll be forced to take evasive action. On impact, the FighterKiller does medium damage.


FS2's addition of shockwaves makes this effectively identical to the Harpoon, which it shares many qualities with. It does have a noticeably shorter range, however.
