General

The Kinetic Driver Turret is a direct upgrade to the Coil Driver Turret, commonly used by medium-level players to protect their bases from sniper attacks.

It fires a white shell that appears identical to the Mass Driver in slow bursts of two.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Kinetic Driver Turrets specialize in long range, enough to protect structures up to 2 squares away from sniper attacks, as opposed to 1 square for Coil Driver Turrets. This allows for greater flexibility in base design.

They also inflict very high damage per shot, severely damaging any ship that gets hit.

Disadvantages

Kinetic Driver Turrets are not reliable due to their slow projectile speed. Their larger minimum range makes them even more susceptible to blitz attacks than Coil Driver Turrets.

Kinetic Driver Turrets also take up a lot of mass, restricting the durability of Combat Modules equipped with this weapon.

Trivia

  • The Kinetic Driver Turret was once called the Heavy Mass Driver, which had been renamed to Kinetic Rail Turret.
  • As the Kinetic Driver Turret levels up, it increasingly resembles a spaceship.
  • The Kinetic Driver Turret has the longest range out of all player-obtainable base weapons.
