Are the projectiles Mechagodzilla fires unguided rockets or are they guided missiles? If they are guided missiles, then what is the guidance system? Heat seeking, radar guided, IR homing, or a mix of any of the two or all 3?

Doubt they're guided, I think it's just an aim and fire method.
Didn't Shin Godzilla get stopped by Crest Toothpaste and Five Gum?

So basically, giant rockets. Interesting. I thought that they were rockets since I saw no such form of guidance system on the top of their actual weapon.

Yeah, I don't recall if they were heat seeking in Ready Player One, but the only missile targeting MechaGoji I know of is Kiryu. OG MechaG was just giant rockets.

And even then Kiryu had conventional rockets via the multi rocket launchers on his shoulders. Not that they worked against Godzilla very well...

MG's rockets didn't seem to be guided in any way. Some hit Godzilla, but others hit all around him.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."
