Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'': The Paladin tank has a laser that shoots down enemy missiles. Problem is, the laser's rate of fire is slower than most missiles, so countering a MacrossMissileMAssacre requires BeamSpam. Base defenses will also try to shoot Scud issiles and the Chinese nuke, but they're onscreen for too little time for it to matter.
* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'': Projectiles will self-destruct in midair if their target is destroyed before they reach it.

Compare PlayingTennisWithTheBoss, where attacks are used to deflect projectiles rather than destroy them. Contrast ShootTheBullet, in which this is an extraordinary MomentOfAwesome / CutscenePowerToTheMax feat instead of a normal gameplay mechanic.

* In the second ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'', attacks from enemy mages and archers can be blocked by striking them with an attack, although the precise timing for this can be difficult to accomplish when fending off swarms of other {{Mooks}} at the same time. Some projectiles (like the bounty hunters' knives) can even be deflected back at the thrower ForMassiveDamage.

* Creator/{{cactus}}'s game ''BurnTheTrash!'' is a ShootEmUp where the player's ship has a secondary weapon that destroys all enemy bullets in its path. The "ship" from the same author's ''Deep/Wing/Break'' can shoot and destroy enemy bullets with its regular weapon. ''VideoGame/{{Minubeat}}'' has a weapon that instantly destroys all enemy bullets on screen, in what would be otherwise a typical BulletHell game. In ''Protoganda II'', you are able to destroy the homing missiles that the enemies sometimes shoot.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Doom 3]]'' includes this for both enemy projectiles and the player's. One of the video logs available mentions the {{BFG}} shots being vulnerable to stray fire, but the ability to intercept enemy fireballs [[GuideDangIt you'll have to find out on your own]]. Despite the [[PainfullySlowProjectile Painfully Slow Projectiles]] being less painfully slow [[RoadRunnerPC relative to the player character]] compared to classic Doom, it's usually easier to dodge incoming attacks and shoot the monsters instead. The fact most projectiles also have a bit of SplashDamage can still be used to the player's advantage by shooting them.
