Yeah all of those missile highlight videos on Youtube don’t show all the missiles that completely missed their targets or failed to penetrate. Whenever I shoot missiles from behind cover using the look around bar trick, I probably only hit and pen my target 1 out of every 4 missiles shot this way. With only 2,500 DPM, the Sheridan really can’t afford to miss or fail to pen that many shots. 
 

And if I don’t shoot the missiles from behind cover, I’m having to sit out in the open for a really long time due to their super slow velocity. The big downside to the missiles is that they only travel at 30 to 45 meters per second.
 

Honestly I would prefer that the missiles be removed entirely and replaced with regular HEAT with a 1,000 to 1,400 meter/second shell velocity.

Why in the hell would you NOT shoot a missile from behind cover?  You can drop them in from space apparently.

Broken OP unless the HEAT was only ~315-325mm of 

pen with CS.

 Based on my experience it’s not easy - the most noticeable missile abuse comes from folks running Warpack mod, and I think those guys are going to be in for a nasty surprise shortly.

Unless they receive some significant ban time for cheating, it won’t be nasty enough. And from what I understand, the PC players can map auto-aim toggle to the right mouse button and guide it as an easier way than the look bar hack Mobile users have to deal with. Both of those me mechanics need to be DISABLED for the missile. 
 

EDITED TO ADD: The Shillelagh ATGM was INFRARED CONTROLLED, which means it requires LINE OF SIGHT to work, just like most television remote controls. So firing behind cover IS NOT REALISTIC!

Somebody responded that the Warpack thing only worked for RU or EU players.  He sounded like he knows what he's talking about, I certainly don't know anything about mods and stuff, but we might need a little bit of confirmation that Warpack is affecting NA.

Lets hope so, cheaters deserve bans.  Like what should've happened to the Astros.

It’s RU based.   Apparently with a PC or jail broken iOS device you can log into it in any server - NA will have ping issues more than others. 
    I can deal with folks getting good with Missiles - but the ridiculous auto lock crap is beyond despicable - I’m hoping for permanent bans.

FWIW low crew won’t have any impact on what the missile does once it’s fired. If you didn’t cause damage, it’s because you didn’t aim correctly.

I used to have a picture here but tiny pic took an arrow to the knee....

that depends upon how WG applies dispersión to the ATG, round. But crew skill has absolutely nothing to do with what happens upon impact.

I stand by my claim that it's not the missiles that are causing the inbalance, it's the apcr that allows it to snapshot like a leo.

Missiles have zero dispersion
