Support Turrets are a new type of Turret that, when placed on a Standard Platform, will provide a unique benefit to a single adjacent Platform. The benefit it provides depends on the type of Support Turret used.
These new Turret Tops will be available to those with Defense Labs level 21-25.
Once you have one of these Support Turrets equipped to a Standard Platform, place it on an adjacent tile to one of your Offensive Turrets. When successfully linked, a beam from the support Turret will extend to the Offensive Turret.
You can even link 1 of each type of Support Turret to a single Offensive Turret!
If there is no beam connecting your turrets, it’s not linked correctly. This can happen if you haven’t placed a Support Turret in an adjacent tile correctly, or if the Support Turret is adjacent to multiple Offensive Turrets.
If a Support Turret is destroyed, it no longer provides benefits to the Offensive Turret to which it is linked. Protect your Support Turrets!
If an Offensive Turret is destroyed, the Support Turret will check if there are any different Offensive Turrets that are adjacent to it - and re-connect to that alternate instead. So while having two live Offensive Turrets adjacent to a Support Turret will result in a failed link, as soon as one is destroyed, the Support Turret will link to the other.
Damage Absorption - When linked with a Standard Offensive Turret, any damage that would be dealt to the Standard Offensive Turret is redirected to the Absorption Turret. All damage the Absorption Turret takes (including the redirected damage) is also reduced based on the turrets level.
Level 1-5: 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% Reduction
Status Effect Immunity - When linked with a Standard Offensive Turret, any status effects applied will be negated.
Damage Boost - when linked with a Standard Offensive Turret, the Fusion Turret provides an increase to damage dealt. The damage increase will vary depending on the Fusion Turret Level.
Levels 1-5: 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, 100% Bonus Damage
Giant Slayer - an alternate damage bonus is applied to the Offensive Turret when firing at a Unique unit.
Levels 1-5: 100%, 125%, 150%, 175%, 200% Bonus Damage
Indirect Damage - When linked with a Standard Offensive Turret, the Viral Turret also deals a percentage of the damage to a Unit’s ‘Parent Unit’.
A Parent Unit is any Unit that spawns temporary units. Example Parent Units include Titan, Sandstorm, Banshee, Fury, Growler, etc. A Parent Unit is not a unit with tech equipped that spawns temporary units once they reach a certain % health.
Indirect damage dealt will vary depending on the Viral Turret Level.
