The Frenzied SICO Missile Turret is an advanced version of the explosive type base turret variant of the SICO missile. It fires a continuous stream of missiles at its targets. It deals a massive amount of damage on level III making it popular if one doesn't have any legendary tier turrets.
Strategy and Setup
Just like the normal version, it has a massive amount of DPS and has the same range as its template version. This makes it a very good Anti-Rush weapon as hulls will suffer badly due to its high DPS. It also has a splash radius which punishes grouped foes even further.
SICO missiles have the a massive amount of DPS. It has significant amount of explosive radius, able to multiply it damage output against groups of enemy ships. Its high fire rate, explosive radius and firepower can quickly dispatch squadrons launched by carriers.
Just like the original, it has a high range but still is outranged by popular sniper weapons like the Siege Driver which makes high ranged turrets like Gemini Driver Turrets a must if you wish to actually deal damage to these types of fleets. Decoys may still get in range due to its high range but it is rare against a skilled pilot. It also has a minimum range that you can exploit to reduce the amount of fire on your hulls.
Being a reusable item it is limited to how many Frenzied SICO Missile Turrets you actually have. This can make base design limited as you may run out of Frenzied versions to equip. It also only has a slightly higher DPS but a massive increase in mass which makes lower level Combat Modules have a hard time equipping it.
Only the level III version is worth it and that version is obtained by attacking high level Alien Outposts and hoping to get it from the random strongbox drop. The legendary turrets like the Cluster Missile Turret have a much higher DPS and overall higher hit chance.
- Frenzied Weapons usually have a higher spread than normal but the Frenzied SICO Missile Turret doesn't increase in spread but only DPS
- The reason it doesn't have a higher spread could be because if it had a higher spread it would struggle to hit any target.
- Although considered a T4 turret in game it was found in T5.5 turret boxes.
