An explosion happens when a missile hits the ground and devastates the area that the missile that it hit. Nuclear missiles and Nuclear ICBM's make a gigantic explosion while conventional missiles make a very tiny one.


Explosion of a nuclear ICBM

A nuke (which creates a very big explosion) is used for reducing the hit points of whole cities to zero and eliminate large groups of units.

Meanwhile, a conventional missile explosion is meant for taking out individual buildings.

(v2 rocket explosions only take half damage to buildings or units)


If you launch a nuke on some maps, there will be a clock.

  • If you launch a nuclear missile and you don't scroll to see it, there will  be a different sound than the usual sound.
