Strategy and Setup
One of the most powerful projectile base weapons, though inferior to the Storm Driver Turret in damage output. Compared to the Wave Driver Turret, it has more firepower and better damage to weight ratio. Fires two shots at once with a small spread which doesn't seem to matter much at medium range, but increases chance of hitting a high range target with one shot at least.
The biggest sheer advantage with this weapon actually occurs when you pair it with storm driver turrets. They can unleash a barrage of fast projectiles which are VERY difficult to dodge, due to the fact that their firing patterns differ, and are harder to predict when there are multiple of them. Mixing some of the Gemini Turret III with Storm Driver Turret III can be a major increase to your bases strength.
However, just like every Projectile turret it has a blind spot which enemies can exploit to avoid damage; though it is considerably smaller than most, it still can make a difference in a battle. Though against most blitz attacks they won't deal much damage against them as they are not a blitz weapon.
Like almost all projectile turrets without Iridium Arrays V, they are very slow in speed able to be dodged very easily by the enemy decoy.
They should be placed on the inner or medium level layers on your base to get a high coverage with the weapon. Replacing every turret to the Gemini is also not recommended. Instead, mix in a few Storm Driver Turrets along with the turrets to make it impossible to reliably dodge due to the firing pattern.
- Notably, this turret is quite long ranged, unlike the ship version, which is suited for medium range combat.
- The Gemini Driver Turret is the second to last VEGA projectile weapon to receive a base variant.
