The Blackout Missile is a Haihead support power available from their Cyberkernel once its expansion is added. It is a ballistic missile utilizing reverse-engineered EMP technology launched from the Cyberkernel towards the target location. Upon impact, the missile creates a powerful scrambler pulse that briefly shuts down any structure caught in the missile's blast radius.
The AI will use Blackout Missile similar to how they use superweapons, so they target any of the following, assuming they are not cloaked:
- Construction Yards
- Power providers (not on Hard difficulty),
- War Factories
- Tier 3 technology providers (e.g. Epsilon Pandora Hub)
If all these does not exist, it'll target base defenses, then finally units.
- The Blackout Missile is based on the Red Alert 3 Allied Aircraft Carrier's special ability of the same name.
