Storm Driver Turret I, II and III

General

The Storm Driver Turret is a powerful and versatile projectile type turret originating from Demon Corps. It was first made available in a the Special Event of November 11th, 2016. It fires bursts of projectile rounds at its targets, with some minimal spread.

Strategy

Advantages:

The Storm Driver Turrets are very powerful, and highly effective on any base currently. The Storm driver turret has a wide covering range. Its functionality in base defense can be compared to SICO missile turrets, except it cannot be out-ranged by long range ship weapons such the Siege driver, or even the precise gauss driver. The turret also has an immense amount of firepower, comparable to the SICO missile turret, making it extremely deadly both to rushing and sniping foes.

Additionally, it has higher accuracy, whereas missiles fired from the SICO missile turret often miss. It is harder to exploit the minimal range of the turret as it is very small. They have a rather high projectile speed, making it difficult to dodge their burst volleys.

Storm driver turrets can be equipped with Iridium arrays and/or phased projectiles, increasing its accuracy and imbuing it with strong shield bypass traits.

Disadvantages:

Storm Driver Turret

The Storm driver turret III, which is the most common, is very heavy. This limits players from even equipping Iridium arrays V, let alone essential armor and shields, on combat modules. They also have a small spread, making it possible for shots to miss even immobilized targets.

Trivia

  • The Storm driver turret originally had no minimal range, but for balancing they added it.
  • The Storm driver turret used to have 8,100m range, but was reduced for balancing. This sparked HUGE backlash on the forums, resulting in the current 8,400m range.
  • The Storm driver turret originally had less DPS, but it was changed along with the minimal range for balancing.
  • The Storm driver turret, along with the other Special Event turrets, are supposed to be KIXEYE's way of bringing back base PvP, which has become very outdated over time.
