Deployable Turret
"Some stolen technology from Dr T's laboratories resulted in the creation of the deployable turret. Fire the small turret into the battlefield and watch it sit tight and obliterate the enemy."

Summary

  • Deployable Turret is a Temporary Gunboat Ability that is occasionally available for players who have an Armory level of 8 or above, and automatically scales to its level.
  • Deployable Turret launches a stationary turret at a targeted location, which will draw fire from defenses, set off any mines it contacts and fire upon any targets until its destruction.
  • Deployable Turrets are not affected by Grapplers, Medics, Dr. Kavan, Crystal Critters, Remote Defib/Second Wind and Flares.
  • Each use costs 5 more Gunboat Energy than the previous, with a starting cost of 5 Gunboat Energy.

Offensive Strategy

  • Due to its low DPS, Deployable Turrets are best used to distract enemy defenses. It is at its best against Rocket Launchers, Lazor Beams, Grapplers and Shock Launchers, all of which can easily ruin an attack otherwise. In certain cases, the Deployable Turret can actually last far longer than Critters against area defenses many other alternatives and survive an entire battle, since it won't move into the range of other defenses.
  • Deployable Turrets can outrange anything a Tank would, such as Flamethrowers, or be placed within blindspots to freely fire upon its target without fear of retaliation.
  • Oddly, Deployable Turrets seem to prioritize targeting Defensive Buildings. They will only start attacking other Buildings once all Defensive Buildings in its attack range are destroyed.

Defensive Strategy

Trivia

  • The Deployable Turret's behavior is shared with those launched by the Turret Engineer Prototype Troop, as well as the Tank.
