This page collects the zillions of different varieties of missiles & bombs.

And see What is your favorite OXP missile? (2010) & Pylons (2011)
Also: How does a missile work? (2012)
  • The following OXPs contain large amounts of missiles & bombs (and are the main source of the list beneath):

Missiles and Bombs also by Ramirez
On the other hand, the über-missiles & mines from the Killit OXP (Superweapon, MegaWeapon, UberWeapon etc) have been omitted as they were never intended for serious play - but rather to make a point about Cheating.
