General

The Pulse Cannon Turret is a Pulse Cannon designed for use in bases.

It fires a volley of five piercing bolts in a slight spread, identical to its ship version.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Pulse Cannon Turrets are powerful all-round weapons for base defense.

They have the potential to deal massive damage by hitting two invading ships in a line with their piercing bolts.

The Xeno version has extra range; this could be further increased by Xeno Focused Apertures to achieve a whopping 7,000 m range that is equal to the Cluster Missile Turret, enabling them to fire at sniper decoys.

Disadvantages

Pulse Cannon Turrets have relatively short range and are outranged by most destroyers, hence longer-ranged weapons such as Eclipse Driver Turrets must be used to support them against sniper attacks.

Unlike most Energy base weapons, Pulse Cannon Turrets do not track their targets, making it possible for the enemy to dodge the projectiles by strafing side to side at maximum range.

The Xeno version is resisted by A.X.I.S. Hulls while the Void version is resisted by Marauder Hulls and NPC Targets. You are recommended to mix them together to achieve a balance against the various fleets that may attack your base.
