The RC missiles are in my opinion the most important power-up. You fire an RC Missile, and your tank freezes, i.e. you can't move it anymore. Instead, you're now controlling the missile. So you can make your missile track other players and destroy them.
TIPS AND INFO
You are susceptible to being destroyed by your own missile. So watch out.
RC missiles have awful steering. Because of this, don't try to be a masterful ninja. Although weaving in and out is fun, be direct and minimize the time it takes for the missile to reach its target. Don't show off.
Before launching the missile, hide in a corner. You are an easy target when you can't move.
Try to avoid walls with the missile. It bounces off of them in a weird way and throws your controls.
When the missile is near an enemy, aim it straight at them. If it misses, it could hit a wall and you could pretty much lose control.
You only have so much time before the missile disappears after launching it AND after you get it.
