Turret for your protection! Can only be placed once.

Defense Turret is an automated gun emplacement that can be constructed from the Wiring Station. It is important to note that this object may only be placed once, and attempting to reclaim it will drop only its Copper Wire and Silicon Board.

Once placed and activated, this turret will automatically fire on hostile entities within range. The turret cannot be destroyed by standard damage (only block destruction).

Defense turrets have their own energy pool which replenishes over time.

Turrets equipped with Rocket Launchers firing on spawned flying monsters.
