Title speaks for itself. If I can destroy missiles with my own, can I destroy them with bullets and beams, CIWS-style?

Shell/blast projectiles can destroy missiles, beam shots act as if they hit a wall but the missiles are unaffected. Since you can't realistically aim at things you can't lockon to doing this on purpose is pretty hard, but it can explain why your bullets get blocked by things like scram launcher, ragna arm, etc.

Isn't that because Scram missiles and Beam Cancellers are "solid" projectiles? I don't recall things like Ballistic missiles being blown up by shells.

I never tried those because it was too difficult due to higher base speeds and laziness. Might be worth trying if someone is really interested but anything that's named ANTI AIR MISSILE or looks like one (beam cancellers, howitzer amj) act like this for sure.

I remember my destructor's aa missiles got shot down by an air using a shotgun. Its probably easier for shotguns to destroy incoming missiles than any other weapon.

I'd be interested in knowing whether or not beam canceller projectiles (namely something like Chloe's AM missiles) can intercept a piercing shot (namely Linear Cannon).
