Outdated Defense Turret 2.0

Automatic defense turret, shoots monsters

  1. Healthire
    New and improved Defense Turret


    Weapon slot

    Turrets now require you to put in a weapon. The turret will use the slotted in weapon to shoot instead of shooting its own bullets. It will have the same rate of fire, damage, spread, and energy usage as whatever weapon you put in.


    New anchors

    Turrets can now be placed on walls and ceilings in addition to being placed on the ground. No longer a standing defense turret!



    Rather than being manually recharged it will now have an automatically recharging energy pool. The max energy is scaled based on the level of the gun in the gun slot. When the turret runs out of energy it will stop shooting until it has recharged enough energy to shoot again.


    • Bugs with world wrapping are fixed
    • General code cleanup
    • No longer activated by interacting (activate by putting a weapon in)
    • No longer has wire nodes (fixed in next update hopefully)


    1. Download the .zip

    Love it, works exceptionally on Single Player, multiplayer however crashes when you come on screen with a turret. If you fix this let me know!

    Since it is in the base game,what about doing turrets of different kinds,attachable to all the surfaces and attacking mobs only instead of N.P.C.s?

      Hehe, this turret is actually in the base game right now, they decided to include it. You can craft it at the wiring station. :)

    The author has clearly spent a lot of time on this. Behavior seems very polished (even compared to the base game's AI) and it's quite satisfying to watch your turrets tracking and mowing down enemies. Delivers everything you'd expect.
