A Stasis Missile is a special type of support missile used by Imperial Titans. Like other support missiles the Stasis Missile takes up one carapace point on the Titan and is usually fitted before a battle.[1a]

Rather than a traditional warhead the Stasis Missile carries a Stasis Field Generator (SFG) which, upon impact, will literally freeze time within an area of space. Anything which is caught within this stasis field or moves into it will become stuck, unable to move or do anything else. While effective at keeping a target trapped in place the stasis field also prevents any attacks against the target. The stasis field is also liable to dissipate or even shift its position at random, and if its destroy while still mounted on a Titan it will prematurely activate.[1b]
