The FIM-92 Stinger is a player held weapon. Much like its real life counterpart, it is designed specifically for engaging air targets.

Gameplay Edit

Firing is done by holding down the use button, pointing to locate target, before clicking the 'Attack' button when one is acquired.

Locking on is managed automatically, as long as the launcher is aimed at the target, and the missiles will aggressively track the enemy after launch.

The Stinger works extremely well when the player is threatened by targets from the air, especially hostile aircraft but the missiles can be diverted when the enemy dispenses flares.

Against the Environment Edit

Against flying hostile mobs, especially Blazes and Ghasts, the Stinger becomes an incredibly useful tool: Taking down both with one shot or even catch multiples within the missiles' blast radius. The missiles also can destroy any Ghast fireballs, they come across.

However, the missile can also harm unintended mobs, the target is flying close to, which could result in attracting unwanted attention

When fighting bosses, the Stinger's rockets can be used to help against the Wither and the Enderdragon although their health pool might demand a larger amount of rockets to take down. Even then all mobs have practically no defense against these missiles.

Be wary that the Stinger can only track targets that are at least 6 blocks off the ground, otherwise the launcher will cease locking. This is true when the target flies close to the ground but this risks them being attacked by the FGM-148 Javelin.
