Mechagodzilla's finger, toe, and neck projectiles. Unguided rockets or guided missiles?

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.

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.

They would appear to be unguided, or at least I haven't seen a hint that they were guided missiles... save for the toe missiles that note "homing". You can see a translation of this cutaway for example:

I guess if you can generate missiles inside yourself, you don't need to worry about accuracy.

It appears MG has an unlimited supply of missiles, so sheer firepower, and not accuracy, would be enough to overwhelm a foe.
