The Plasma Missile Turret is a base explosive weapon. It is the first base explosive weapon available for research. They fire bursts of red, glowing orbs of plasma that have a moderate projectile speed. The number of bolts per burst increase as you equip a higher level version of the turret. They are popular turrets at medium range defence amongst low level and mid level players.
Strategy and Setup Edit
Plasma missile turrets are oriented for medium range defence and support long range turrets to fighting off long range attacks from fleets of destroyers. They have the highest amount of firepower of all rebel base turrets when using the level V variant.
They are effective against destroy decoy ship at mid levels, they have high rate of fire and effective at destroying carrier squadrons. While the plasma bolts are slow moving and easy to dodge, plasma turrets fire them numerously, making it more difficult to dodge than projectile turrets. While the description says that is the area damage, Plasma missile turrets do not have a high amount of splash damage, but high amount of spread, making it unsuitable for destroying single targets are long range but better against groups of ships.
They can be effective against blitz and close range attacks. Players should spread their Plasma missile turrets to cover each other's minimum firing range.
While they are versatile in their defence role, they do have weaknesses such as the fact that any destroyer armed with Mass drivers or Siege drivers can destroy combat modules with Plasma missile turrets while staying out of their range. However, it is still a decent weapon at mid level ranges. They should be replaced with SICO missile turrets when the player obtains them as they are far more powerful.
- The Plasma missile turret was once called the heavy plasma charger.
- Like the Fusion torpedo turret, when you upgrade it, the Plasma missile turret fires more plasma bolts per salvo.
