Improvised turrets are rudimentary defenses that can be built after researching 'Gun Turrets'.

Improvised turrets can be built to defend your colony, they will automatically target human entities. Turrets will only acquire animal targets if they have gone crazy.

Turret goes critical

Upon taking lethal damage, turrets will explode (doing damage), destroying most objects around them. The explosion radius is three units. This explosion will instantly destroy any sandbag in the vicinity.

A note on explosion damage

The explosion is not pretty, it can destroy a good game quick.


new experiment: The explosion does 300 damage to nearby structures, 100 damage to sandbags and damage to humans ranges from 48-72(experimental) this is divided under the bodyparts.

old experiment: I set up a little experiment, to test the damage and explosion radius. Building up an 11x11 square of sandbags, with a turret in the center, I placed 4 colonists around the turret and had them shoot the turret. This allowed me to get a look at the explosion radius, and damage of the explosion.

The end result was it did an average of 75 damage to each of the four shooters. This isn't an exact science. Suffice it to say, if you're in the middle of a firefight and one goes off, you may lose anyone within range.

So be careful
