Cost: 2 crystals
Damage: 1 per projectile (1 missile + 8 spits)
MissileRoot is one of the more consistent and affordable seeds available. It homes in on the nearest target, doing 1 damage for the initial missile and then an additional 1 damage for each projectile that strikes both the initially struck target, other enemies and even TumbleSeed!
The scattering spits fly out in 8 distinct directions, both orthogonally and diagonally. For large targets like the Banana Snake, spits often will be entirely absorbed by the target, destroying it.
For smaller targets, be prepared to dodge! Staying close to—but slightly askew from—one of the potential directions makes it easy to thread TumbleSeed between errant spits when taking a risky shot.
