Blast incoming base attackers with the semi-guided Vector Torpedo Turret.
— Event Store
The Vector Torpedo Turret is an event explosive weapon. It is available in the event Emergence. It serves as the base counterpart of the Vector torpedo. It fires five torpedoes, one at a time before a momentary reload period, that travel at a moderate speed at their targets, adjusting its trajectory as the target moves, so it homes in. Vector torpedoes has an orange trail like most missiles. They are common base turrets amongst high level players.
Vector torpedo turrets are powerful, in that they deal excellent amount of damage and they are very difficult to dodge. They serve as viable replacements for the Gladius driver turret and Fusion torpedo turret due to their tracking abilities when it comes to destroying fleets at long ranges.
While the Vector turrets have a slow fire rate and modest projectile speed, they are very reliable. They have a very consistent damage output because of their accuracy and never miss their targets. They do not require the support of Arrestor beam turrets or NET torpedo turrets and players can equip combat modules that would with other weapons, improving other areas of their base's defence. They are of moderate weight, but combat modules can be equipped with a fair amount of armor and shields. Vector torpedoes in number can quickly deplete shields of any target including decoy cruisers, wreak havoc against a line of destroyers should they be exposed.
Vector torpedoes have a significant minimum range, but their blind spots can be covered with short ranged turrets such as Tachyon beam turrets or SICO missile turrets. Combat modules can be spread out around the base to cover each other's blind spots.
