Homes in on the target's engines and disables them with a powerful EMP burst. A combat-rated autoloader system ensures usefulness in protracted engagements.

The Salamander missile is a specialized weapon with two design considerations. The first is an extremely advanced tracking/targeting mechanism which enables it to home in on enemy engines, whilst avoiding all other potential impact points and Point Defense threats.

The second is a special warhead design which, instead of attempting to destroy the target with kinetic or explosive force, generates targeted electromagnetic fields with magnitudes exceeding 3 gigatesla. When such a field is created in the proximity of unshielded engines and hull components, it will quickly knock out all their electronics, rendering them useless until repaired.

–In-Game Description

The Salamander MRM is a small missile weapon that seeks out the target's engines. It does fragmentation and EMP damage, and comes in a pod variant. Unlike most other missiles, the Salamander has unlimited ammo.


As the missile behavior suggests, Salamanders are good at disabling enemy engines. They can be used to present targets with a dilemma: keep shields facing the enemy and risk a dangerous engine flameout, or turn them to block the Salamander and take damage on the front.

The Salamander's low DPS and fragmentation damage type leave it largely ineffective as a direct-damage weapon.
