* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', the support hunter Bucket has a laser guided missile launcher as his primary weapon. Because the projectiles home on the laser rather than the monster, clever players can use this to lead the target or even shoot around obstacles. Another hunter, Emet, has a variant where you first fire a pellet that the rest of his missiles will home in on.

** And to continue the long Italian tradition of CombatPragmatism in an era where some of the earlier tricks are done by everyone or would be war crimes, Iveco (maker of the Centauro tank destroyer) and OTO Melara gave us the [[http://www.military-today.com/artillery/porcupine.htm Porcupine]]: a prototype consisting of a Centauro chassis mated with a 155/39mm howitzer capable of firing homing shells to targets up to 60 km away. And the ability to hit the poor target with four of them ''at the same time''. Let's face it, when the Italians go at war they're assholes.
