Strategy and Setup
Creeper torpedo turrets is an area denial weapon shooting slow deadly charges that deal a considerable amount of splash and damage upon impact. This massive AoE and slow speed makes a perfect Anti-Squadron defence as many squadrons entering its field of fire will be blown up instantly.
It also has a surprisingly high range, when paired with Antimatter Detonators V it can potentially deal so much AoE it can hit all 4 snipers in a popular sniping fleet.
However, like its ship counterpart, it is almost always dodged as its high spread and slow AoE makes it take many seconds to even reach the enemy hull. Since it is stationary aswell only blitzing fleets will be hit, but it has too large of an Minimum range to be effective.
Even then, it is easily replaced by the SICO Missile Turret in EVERY aspect as the SICO Missile Turret simply it is much better at squadron defence, damage, and effective range.
The Creeper Torpedo Turret is almost NEVER recommended on any base layout due to how ineffective it is due to its slow speed, it also cannot be a anti-blitz weapon either due to its massive minimal range arc.
If you wish to equip it, equip level III and have a high level Antimatter Detonators. Place it on the inside of your base to allow it to be more effective against blitzing fleets as it will almost never hit snipers.
- It is the earliest blueprint turret in the game, having the level III version unlocked in only Tier II VSec. This is earlier than the Tachyon Beam Turret, the first blueprint turret you will usually get.
- Looking at its blueprint portrait, it is the largest turret in the game. However, in-game it is around similar size to other turrets.
