Automated turrets are automated unmanned laser and machine guns, which are capable of sensing and attacking targets that are hostile to the faction, or organization to which they belong.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Turret. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

They are employed by technologically advanced organizations, such as the Enclave, or the Brotherhood of Steel, and historic sites for security detail, such as the Museum of History, though in the latter case their former operators had been long since dead. In one case, a raider gang near the Arlington Library has reprogrammed turrets to protect their camp and chem lab.

CharacteristicsEdit

SpecificationsEdit

Automated turrets can be mounted on the floor or the ceiling. The ceiling turrets use 5.56mm machine guns whereas the ground turrets are equipped with lasers, although some ground mounted 5.56mm machine gun turrets were built. Both variants have unlimited ammunition.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Automated turrets are often found in military installations or areas of historical value. Although not too damaging at lower levels, they can be quite deadly if they surprise you. Both types of turrets can be frenzied by shooting either the targeting chip (on ground units) or the lens (on ceiling units). Then, similar to frenzied insects or robots, the turrets will fire on everything they see.

VariantsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Turrets are generally controlled from a nearby terminal. Using your Science skill to hack the terminal will allow you to override the targeting parameters, which will make the turret target any character (not just the player) or shut it down completely. After being turned off the turret can be turned back on at the same terminal if so desired.
  • The ceiling-based turrets have a blind spot directly below them.
  • With the Robotics Expert perk, it is possible to sneak up on turrets and disable them. You don't necessarily need to be [HIDDEN]; simply being momentarily out of sight is enough to deactivate them.
