Location List of Missiles
Effect Stronger than Power Beam, opens red doors

Missiles are stronger than the standard Power Beam, dealing five times the damage in comparison (total of 100 damage) while having an attack cooldown of only nine frames.

Missiles are useful in the early game, but decrease in usefulness as gameplay progresses, primarily due to the introduction of Super Missiles and beam upgrades.

Red doors can be opened with five Missiles. (or a single Super Missile)
