a missile (and launcher) that upon impact causes the blocks within a small radius from the impact to DETACH from the tech but not have any damage
backstory could be that the missile inverts the magnets that hold the blocks on each other over as small range when the missile explodes (if the missile explodes on the launching tech, the launching tech loses the blocks nearest to the explosion)

Ehhh i think it being a missile would be too powerful, missiles are too powerful as is, but one that doesn't destroy blocks would be a smidge too powerful. maybe turn it into an energy cannon of sorts? Without a homing projectile.

my thoughts regarding the exact details for the missile and launcher, the launcher being a rrl3 block 4 long 2 wide 3 high launching the missile up at approx 30 degrees from horizonal (and costs several exotic components and at least 10 zero point splitters), the missile being about half to 2/3 the speed of the gso (assuming the gso is the slowest) missiles and the tracking ability of the bombs, with the 'explosion' having a radius of approx 2 gso blocks that detaches the blocks inside the 'blast' radius

Phase shift mechanics for blocks and weapon, maybe a block that able to let your tech go into ghost mode(other techs, breakable objects, attacks go through you, enemy AI can't detect you), firing will break ghost mode and it drains battery power like no tomorrow,

Or a torpedo that ignores collision for a short period when launched, makes it able to damage the interior of the target if timed right.

Reticule Research Black Hole Cannon
The researchers at the lab have finally devised a way to use the Mobile SCU technology they *ahem* "borrowed" from Better Future on a projectile that is slow-moving, but it sucks all blocks that it touches as well as those in close proximity. It goes weird with shield bubbles, including yours, bouncing randomly on them, but be warned: If it bounces back from a shield, including yours and hits your tech, it will suck up your blocks too, ruining your "perfect" megaton spam bulid, and if it hits your cab, the tech will be destroyed, but at least you'll have a bouncing SCU. In the lab, sometimes the researchers can be seen playing table tennis using minature versions of this weapon with paddles that are energy shielded resulting in equipment being sucked away.

Edit: @harpo99999 don't JUICE this post please
