The GTM MX-64 Rockeye


Tech Room Data

The GTM MX-64 Rockeye is a faster, more accurate, larger payload version of the MX-50 that was in service at the beginning of the Great War. The missile developed as a result of experimentation by engineers at some of STX Exploration's most isolated mining operations, in the systems of Laramis and Luyten 726-BA. Advances in remote-controlled explosive devices were used by GTVA engineers to improve the old MX-50s. The heat-seeking MX-64 Rockeye is now a standard loadout for Terran fighter craft.

Veteran Comments

A staple of multiplayer, but just not worth it in single. The Rockeye is actually larger then the GTM Harpoon while dealing less damage and being less accurate. Completely point and shoot without lock time, but the advantage seems mainly illusory in single play. Like the GTM Hornet, it flies a lag-pursuit curve to the target, making high-deflection angle shots worthless.

Actually, try firing a swarm of them. A grouping of about 5-6 of them virtually guarantees total anihilation of any enemy fighter at close range.
