The Graviton Ray Turret is a base energy weapon. It is the second base energy weapon available for research.
They fire single laser bolts at their targets at medium range. They are relatively uncommon even amongst low/mid level players.
Strategy and Setup
The Graviton Ray turret is very light, Combat Modules can equip much more armor and shields and easily equip Focused Apertures V for alot of range. This can prove useful on low level sniper attacks as they are incredibly hard to dodge due to its high speed and range.
It also has no minimum range which is interesting for a turret that can reach almost 7,250m range making it able to help against point blank combats that blitzing fleets usually are fighting in.
However, the Graviton Ray turret deals very low damage. Basing fleets like snipers are usually outfitted with the highest armor possible making its low damage be a huge hassle for the player against these fleets. This low damage is the lowest in the game, only lower with the Arrestor Beam Turret but that turret's job is to stun.
Many turrets are better at the Graviton's job as well even the Thermal Ray Turret for blitzing and Coil Driver Turret for anti sniping. While the player levels up, it does an even worse job for the competition, Gladius Driver Turrets are much better alternatives and later the Gemini Driver Turrets.
Players should never use this turret and should always use the Thermal Ray Turret V or Coil Driver Turret V which are far more superior. Though, if you do use it try to place it on the middle layer as they have high range but not too high like projectiles.
- It is the 2nd weakest energy based turret in terms of raw firepower, now surpassed by the Arrestor beam turret.
- It was once called the Heavy Polaron beam.
- Heavy Polaron beam used to home in on their targets and have even less firepower.
