Sometimes I'm just flying casually, and some smartass crewman says "Sir, we got a weapons lock!"
And there's no ship to be seen, nothing in my sights, nothing in the radar. But if i let them loose, they don't seem to be hitting anything. Are they stopped by terrain or countermeasures, or did they just fly into empty space? I don't know
So my question would be: How is missile lock achieved? Do I have to be aiming at a ship, or does it just lock on the first thing that comes into range, even if it's cloaked or behind terrain?
Thanks for reading
Addditional question: Is shooting at incoming missiles with primary/secondary weapon any good?
