[Vorp!] Killing turrets with everyship.
In this guide I will show you the best strategy for killing turrets for every single ship in the game
Now what i’m about to show you has been kept a secret for a very very long time.
We all know that iron wolf can go behind the wall and use it’s alpha cannons to shoot through the wall and hit the turret. This is extremely SLOOOW and you most likely won’t kill it before enemy respond.
The trick is to run up to the turret and place your territorial defense shield then back off the shield and shoot your missiles and alpha cannons at the turret. Also optional is dropping a Craw to help speed it up before placing shield.
What this will do is it keeps the turret from attacking you and allowing you to deal maximum damage.
Now we are all aware that you can out range the turrets with ant and that won’t be covered here. What I will show you is how you kill turrets when it is at an extremely bad angle suck as the turret to the first battery.
First you must rush up to the turret shooting missiles then using the spacebar, reverse thrust backward in a straight line while still keeping your curser right where you left it when you attack the turret.
If you let go of spacebar and turret hits you, you will bounce to the side and you will lose your aim and have to redo it all over again
Is a fairly straight forward ship. First you move behind the wall where the turret is located. What you do is shoot your boomerblade at the turret and most importantly WAIT for the blade to come back to you nailing the turret a second time. The first time it hits the turret, it will deal the standard damage,but when it hits the turret on it’s way back to you, it will deal double the damage allowing you to kill a turret extremely quickly and take very minimal damage in the process so escaping is a breeze.
Hirudo can kill a turret quite fine but it takes bit longer than other ships. First you charge in and unleash your Shadow/Nectron combo and activate insulator to absorb the few shots. Circle around the turret until your shadow circuit runs out then retreat and come back once it cooldown is over. If you have thrustbleed then feel free to continuously circle the turret. (If you don’t have thrustbleed be very wary of flame turrets)
This ship is pretty inefficient at killing turrets so it will take a bit of a challenge to do it. For the flame turrets, your vorpal burner upgraded to level 3 will BARELY out range the flame turret so try to find that sweet spot. If you are trying to kill an ordinary turret you will need to have upgraded your ship’s health to level 3 and vorpal burner to lvl 3 to kill it. You will have to be tanky to kill ordinary turrets with the angel so it is not recommended. If you are the suicide bomber type, then you would need to damage a turret till it has 1/3 hp left before your fully upgraded Firey Death will finish it off. Stick to killing flame turrets for this ship unless you are really sure you can tank a turret and escape.
Another ship that is quite terrible at killing turrets but it can be done. Just run in and out triggering photon vorpedoes. Just watch your aim cause vorpedoes tend to miss the turret if fired at the wrong angle and hit the wall.
Fairly simple but takes a while to kill the turret. Run in and out hitting with your fully charged laido slash. Do not just repeatedly fire it because it will drain your energy extremely fast and you will put your life at risk
This ship has the easiest time killing turrets overall. Just hide behind a corner or a wall and shoot your bindu bolt and it will kill the turret. Doing that does take an average amount of time to kill the turret. If you want to kill it faster. Run up to turret and deploy ghost field and shoot omen sphere at it*(Watch out if it a missile turret, you have to be very close to shoot omen sphere because the missiles bounce the sphere out of trajectory.)* and shoot your bindu bolt at the same time. You will take a few shot but ghost field reduce the damage significantly and after omen sphere is shot, it will absorb the shots of the turret. Doing this will allow you to kill a turret faster, but it is a bit more risky
Extremely easy to kill turrets. Go up to the turret, drop the wall right on top or near the turret then let the turret attack the wall and you destroy it with shotgun. Also optional is putting your gruba turret to help kill it faster and kill any other building near it. Lvl one wall can be destroyed by turrets on few occasions but you will kill the turret by then.
Outrange the turret. If at bad angle like the ant, run up shoot at it then reverse thrust and keep on firing. There more room for mistakes because you can hear your shots hit and your shots spread out
Like the angel fire, this ship is quite bad at killing ordinary turrets. Stick to killing flame turrets or missile turret. If you see a normal turret being occupied by say a drone, run up and shoot at it and you will take it down pretty quickly. If you must charge a normal turret, then you will have to tank it like the angel fire. Drop storms of horrors to add to damage and just tank the damage. Ancient presence will help heal off some of the damage but once again avoid normal turrets
For flame and missile turret just launch maelstorm and shoot your shards at it. For normal turrets you can launch maelstorm then run and repeat it till it is dead but this is extremely time consuming. You can try to get some of your shard to hit the turret behind a corner but it not worth the effort. Stick to killing flame and missile turrets.
Unfortunately unlike the angel, you don’t outrange flame turrets so you will have to just shoot it at the edge of the turret’s range. You will receive a moderate amount of damage but nothing crazy that you need to worry about. For normal turrets, if it preoccupied by something else shoot it with aero slash from a distance. Aero slash does practically the same damage as pincer gun except that it passes through everything. If you are taking on a normal turret solo, then you will have to get very lucky and pin yourself against the wall and spin with your switchblade. It is extremely difficult as when the turret shoots you, it pushes you away so your blade wont reach. Trying to tank it out with aero slash is senseless as you will take way too much damage for it to be worth it.
Shoot main gun at the turret. Your gun outranges the turret but it will take you a long time to finish off the turret due to low dps of the gun
Unless turret is in the open like the missile turrets and the 2 flame turret at the core. Do not shoot kamehas as they will just disappear when they hit the wall behind the turret. Best you can do is just find a very good spot where you can barely reach the turret through a corner. You will never be able to tank out a turret with this.
