Fusion torpedo turret are a medium-long range, explosive based turret. It fires volleys of slow moving torpedoes with an orange engine trail at their targets with a massive explosion radius. They are not very common, but still, none the less, effective weapons even for high level fleets.
Description and UsageEdit
Fusion torpedo turrets launch powerful torpedoes over a large spread and with a massive explosive radius. They cannot be out ranged by any existing ship weapons. Because of their spread and explosive splash damage, they often inflict damage to fragile destroyers even when aiming at decoy cruisers attempting to draw away incoming fire.
They have a sizeable minimum firing range, they are not very effective in blitz attacks so they should be used in conjunction with other turrets such as Thermal ray turrets, Tachyon ray turret or Plasma missile turrets for closer range defence. Players are recommended to spread their combat modules out to cover each turrets blind spot and avoid collateral damage. You'll need to strike a perfect balance between short and long range if you want your base to be effective against both blitz and long-range attacks.
Fusion torpedoes have a low speed and take some time to reach their targets and can be dodged partially. Despite the in game description's claims, they deal a high amount of damage, especially the level V version, but because of its spread - rarely do all of the torpedoes land on a target, hence, it inflicts relatively low amount of damage to a single target. The spread of the torpedoes is useful especially firing at a compact line of destroyers as it is more likely they will be struck by the torpedoes.
Fusion torpedo turrets launch more torpedoes as you use a higher level variant of it.
Fusion torpedo turrets level V are very heavy, combat modules sporting such a turret are often lightly armored and shielded.
- Fusion torpedo turret was once called heavy plasma torpedo.
