« on: August 03, 2005, 12:16:48 AM »
What is the defence of Alien Goo? What determines whether you kill it or not when it is attacked?

Ok. I have always considered turrets rather pointless. They are called gun turrets, however, they have no range and are quite weak. The only thing they do is inhibit movement.

I'm afraid they would become too strong with higher strength

Wow, I once killed a tank and a hovership with turrets on the same turn. Got me out of a pickle, now I realise how lucky I was!

Leave it how it is.
If it isn't broken, don't fix it.
Thanks for the info Matlu...

Does Turret have a chance of killing a mech warrior?
