I think that this is where I would ask this question
Reason? Probably not a reason but you do get that nice incoming missle indicator on the hud if you have a hud that is. For some reason that always draws my eye.
They used to be announced, but after the last patch they havent been announced. Ive been playing HC lately to level up the SVU-AS, so i dont have a HUD there, but the is no "Enemy Hellstorm Missle inbound" anymore
In HC that would certainly be an issue. The Hellstorm comes in pretty quite until it's really too late to do anything about it. If it was announced before then they probably goofed in making in unannounced.
