Grunt Capture 1

Three Grunts capturing an abandoned laser turret

The Laser Turret is a powerful defensive weapon established by the native defenders sometime prior to the Hierarchy invasion and abandoned in the conflict.

They are still quite functional and can be captured by a Grunt, Ohm Robot, or Disciple for their respective faction. The Laser Turret fires a continuous beam at enemies and is particularly effective against Walker hardpoints, vehicles, and aircraft. However, the turret is no match for a dedicated "siege" unit like the Defiler, Amplifier, or Peacebringer nor is is able to effectively deal with swarms of units due to its long cool down in between attacks.
