The Puncture Driver Turret is a long-range Projectile base defence weapon that occurs only in Alien Outposts, on Alien Combat Modules. It does relatively low damage, but has the ability to pierce multiple ships, similar to the AP Driver Turret.
The projectile it shoots appears as a mini Wave Driver, which makes sense since this weapon has 25% shield bypass, just like the Wave Driver Turret.
This is the only weapon in the Unknown Outpost that you could dodge. Dodging these projectiles can significantly reduce the amount of repairs you get. Strafe Thrusters and Binary Thrusters are recommended for the task.
You should spread out your ships in order to prevent the Puncture Drivers from hitting multiple ships with their piercing ability. Retreating a damaged ship behind a healthy ship is also a bad idea for the same reason.
Using projectile-resistant armor and shields can also reduce the damage taken.
Note that this weapon does not have a minimum range.
- The Puncture Driver Turret was first seen alongside the Discharge Beam Turret and the Impact Driver Turret during the Alien Base Preview for the Outbreak event.
- The Puncture Driver Turret has the exact same sprite as the Impact Driver Turret.
