Mega Man X using Homing Torpedo

Homing Torpedo (ホーミングトーピード Hōmingu Tōpīdo?) is the Special Weapon that X obtains from defeating Launch Octopus in Mega Man X. When equipped, X fires a small missile that seeks out the nearest enemy. If there or no enemies nearby, the weapon will simply fly in a straight line. Despite its "torpedo" moniker, it can be used both in and out of water, much like the amphibious Dive Missile from the original series. Up to two Homing Torpedoes can be fired and be visible on the screen at a time (three in Maverick Hunter X). When fully charged, X will fire four (six in MHX) quick piranha-like missiles with similar homing qualities as the uncharged version.

This weapon is Boomer Kuwanger's weakness.

  • In Mega Man X, Homing Torpedo is misspelled Horming Torpedo in-game. This grammatical error has been corrected in Maverick Hunter X.
  • Homing Torpedo is incapable of homing in on Sigma when fighting him in the first battle. Whether it be under normal or secondary fire, the weapon will just be fired straight forward, as if there were no enemies nearby. In Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, this bug has been fixed.
