Hey guys,

So I just got back into SWTOR and I feel like something is missing.

Didn't there used to be a backpack missile for bounty hunter, or am I just nuts? If it's in game, what's it called? I miss it :3

Mid 20's on merc you get an ability called "fusion missile". That fires a missile from your back. Otherwise I'm not sure, once I hit 40 I'll check if heatseeker missile does the same thing.

Aw that's a bummer. I loved spamming that backpack missile.

Thank you for the clarification guys. I appreciate it.

In the datamined info, they talked about a Rocket Launcher for Trooper. Maybe we'll get the missile backpack thing again for that?

Yeah, you're probably thinking of the old tracer missile animation, which has long been swapped with the fusion missile animation.

A lot of mercs were complaining about being bent over for half the match, but I kinda liked it. I miss the big smokey explosion from TM, but even more, I miss the sound. You could hear the tracer missile half way around the wz.. it would be like "BOOM.. BOOM.. BOOM". It was like... step aside, the cavalry has arrived

But of course now we're the cannon fodder of pvp
