This trope comes in two flavors:
Fig. A. The Spinout MIssile. The projectile appears to be a a SuperPersistentMissile but stops targeting you juuuust before it hits you, giving a second or two to dodge.

Fig. B. The Pseudo-Homing-Shot. The projectiles are fired at a moderate pace and go in a straight line, but they always travel fast and seem to be pinpointed at where you were when they were fired. Oh, and there's usually no way to tell where the turret is going to fire, too.

* In ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', and its GaidenGame ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'', the combat shotguns used by the law enforcement officers of the Adeptus Arbites and Necromunda Enforcers are equipped with special Executioner rounds as standard. These rare, adamantium-tipped projectiles contain sensors and a primitive robotic brain that allow it to lock onto energy patterns and seek them out with unerring accuracy.

** The closest thing the orks have to a smart projectile is the Grot Bomb, essentially a missile with a cockpit piloted by a gretchin so it can make crude corrections to its trajectory. The gretchin is not informed of what happens once it hits the target, but it does give some semblance of accuracy to the army that named MoreDakka.
