“Fires a missile that damages the area around the target for an energy cost.”
- - In game descriptions
The Missile Flinger is a weapon in the Captain Outfitter.
Most of its coloring is based on the Captain's coat color, with the tips of missiles inside the Flinger being the Captain's detail color and some other parts being the Captains base color.
The Missile Flinger is a handheld explosive Captain weapon. The Missile Flinger is also useful against Epic creatures, as they are stunned for a short while after being hit. However, this also attracts the attention of the attacked Epic if it was attacking something else. This weapon also allows a Captain to attack enemy spaceships, just like the Plasma Pulser. Also, the Missile Flinger and the Lightning Striker are the weapons that use the most energy, while the Bladed Knuckles uses the least amount of energy.
The damage and energy usage can be found in the instruction booklet of Spore Galactic Adventures, on page 4.

It fires a "Missile Attack", which is a small guided missile (the missile size increases with higher levels of Flinger), making the Missile Flinger similar to a handheld torpedo or Proton Missile launcher. However, unlike other missiles, the Missile Attack travels in a mostly straight line, only ever changing direction if its target does. Also, the Missile Attack's trail appears to be several smoking pulses instead of the continuous burning trail of most other missiles. This weapon is useful for adventures with multiple enemies, since a Level 3 Flinger's missile makes a large explosion which can damage multiple targets if they are close to each other.
