Kinetic Driver Turret

General Edit

The Kinetic Driver Turret is a long range, projectile turret. They are one of the last base turret weapons to be researched. They fire white shells with a trailing blue outline at their targets in slow bursts of two. They are common weapons on mid and high level bases. They possess the most range of any base turret, they cannot be out ranged by any ship weapon or squadrons.

Description and UsageEdit

The Kinetic driver turret is the next step up from the Coil driver turret in terms of range, firepower and cost. It is extremely long ranged and oriented particularly for destroying enemy ships, especially destroyers, at long ranges. They possess the highest amount of damage of all projectile weapons as well as the highest range despite the in-game description's claims. They have low projectile speed and players frequently equip Iridium arrays to increase their accuracy as they often miss their target at long ranges. They have a slight spread when firing at their targets.

Kinetic drivers turrets are very heavy, combat modules equipped with a level V of such have less armor and shields.

They have a very large minimum firing range and have minimal effectiveness at blitz attacks, where enemy ships attack enemy bases from a very short range.

However, the kinetic driver turret, paired with other assorted long range base weapons can offer effective long range support against destroyers trying to out range your Plasma missile turret or Thermal ray turrets. The Kinetic driver turret is often replaced with blueprint weapons like the Gladius driver turret or Vector torpedo turrets by higher level players because they improve on some of the weaknesses against long range attacks.

TriviaEdit

  • As the Kinetic driver turret increases in level, it more and more starts to resemble a spaceship
  • The Kinetic driver turret used to be called the heavy Mass driver, it had far more firepower.
