Do we have this already? How did we miss it?

An alternative to Splash Damage, sometimes video game designers will want to give an option for archers and other wielders of projectiles a way of hitting multiple targets at a time. One way to do this is with Spread Shot, but the other way is to give the shooter a single projectile that can hit a target and then keep right on moving.

This can sometimes lead to moments of Fridge Logic as one wonders how an arrow can sail through three still-living enemies without even slowing down, but it can also provide more variety in types of attack. This tends to be common among Tower Defense games, and sometimes in other strategy and RPG games, usually focusing on The Archer.
