Where can I get Info on the Farsight and Lidar Turrets ??

Kixeye keep coming out with new stuff all the time, but they dont have any detailed info on anything. The Wiki is almost useless on new items. and Kixeye doesn't seem to provide any detailed info on anything new they put out.

    Just keep upgrading your defense lab .Don't quote me on this,but i think around lvl 32 you get farsight and lvl 36 you get lidar and chronos heavy turret.You will have to upgrade your defense lab to be able to get them past lvl 1.Hope this helps.

    too add you can only place the lidar and chronos on a heavy bulwark platform..
    to see the information.when changing turrets hover mouse over the turret you want info on.

    Farsight (standard gen2 turret) gives a +50 range increase to all units inside its aura. Its shoot can disable the ds aura.

    Lidar (gen2 heavy turret) at max lvl gives +75 range increase, and increased rate of fire to all unit inside its aura.

    The two buffs stack with each other so a lidar and a farsight present can give you +125 range increase.

    2 farsights or 2 lidars however will not stack.

    have a look in your defense lab, farsight is a regular turret  but needs a gen2 platform ... lidar is a heavy but needs the gen2 heavy bulwark platform

    as  a lvl49, 10yr vet .... looking in the defense lab should have been the first thing you should have done

    you may need to level up buildings to make it (I forget if they were unlockable without cc18 and a higher def lab)

    good luck

    His actual question was, where can he find information  and not where can he find the turrets. Very little information via the defense lab

    a little correction to what Hazelnut has posted


    lvl 2: Lidar Defense buffs nearby units inceasing range by 65, decreasing damage taken by all sources by 8%

    Lvl3: Lidar Defense buffs nearby units inceasing range by 85, decreasing damage taken by all sources by 16%

    Lvl4: Lidar Defense buffs nearby units inceasing range by 95, decreasing damage taken by all sources by 16%, increasing damage dealt by 20%

    Lvl5: Lidar Defense buffs nearby units inceasing range by 100, decreasing damage taken by all sources by 16%, increasing damage dealt by 30%

    Does Lidar boost turrets or just units? Any idea what range "nearby" is?

    No it does not boost turrets only units and it has an aura.
