The Impulse Beam Turret is the base version of the Impulse Beam.
It fires an unstoppable bright yellow beam after charging up for a few seconds, much like its ship counterpart.
Strategy and Setup
Impulse Beam Turrets have good firepower and never miss, typical of Energy weapons.
They have relatively long range compared to other similar weapons, enough to catch a sniper decoy off guard if equipped with Focused Optics V.
Impulse Beam Turrets have low range and can be easily sniped by destroyers.
Like most Energy weapons, Impulse Beam Turrets are inferior to the SICO Missile Turret, which has more range and firepower.
Impulse Beam Turrets carry a large amount of XP, making your base more vulnerable to high-level fleets.
