For me, the missile pod is my all time most fun weapon to use. It was so fun to go off the man cannon on Valhalla while unloading your missiles at a warthog cruising beneath you or at a group of enemies chilling on the center hill. Or going up one of the lifts on Construct and clearing out a room of camping enemies. It’s one of those must-haves in social slayer.
Also, the missile pod is skillful. Against players on foot, you have to lead them by the perfect amount and get a direct hit to pick up a kill. It didn’t take much skill to take down a vehicle, but what did take skill was evading all 8 missiles while flying the banshee.
