Turrets are automated, unmanned machine guns which are capable of sensing, and attacking targets that are hostile to the faction, or organization to which they belong, or whomever programmed them.

BackgroundEdit

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.

VariantsEdit

Automated turretEdit

Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

Automated turrets can rest on the floor or be mounted onto the ceiling. The ceiling turrets generally use bullet-based weaponry, whereas the ground turrets are usually equipped with lasers. Some ground mounted bullet-based turrets were built, as well as laser-based ceiling models. Both variants have unlimited ammunition.

Auto-cannonEdit

Alien turrets (simply called "turret" in-game) are the alien equivalent of automated turrets, encountered on board Mothership Zeta. In contrast to the Captal Wasteland's automated turrets, only ceiling-mounted versions of this turret exist.

Hall monitorEdit
