Do Flares Attract Homing Missiles?
#1
A guy on the GOG forum just told me that if you shoot a flare at a wall near you, and someone fires a homing missile at you, that the missile will hit the flare and not you. Is this true?? How have I not known this??? lol

This could be done in a mod, but it is not the case in Rebirth, and as far as I know has never been in Descent (retail), DXX, or DXX-Rebirth.  See find_homing_object_complete for the full implementation.  In short, homing weapons can track robots/players (as appropriate based on who fired it) and, in Descent 2 (but not Descent 1), track proximity bombs / smart mines.

Since you have an account there, would you mind correcting the person who made that claim?  I'd rather not have misinformation floating around undisputed.
