Perdition turrets are automated terran-designed base defense structures. Their weapons come from scrounged firebat suits, and have gained a permanent place in terran arsenals.[1]

The turret is available in the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign. It is acquired at 10 zerg research points in the laboratory and at the cost of being able to use planetary fortresses.[2]

The turret is meant to supplement bunkers. They are fairly cheap and fast to build for their damage output, and can provide strong close-range protection to supplement the marines and siege tanks the player is likely using for defense otherwise. They are most effective against zerglings due to their bonus against light-armored units and low range. Against terrans and protoss their uses are more limited, as zealots are much more durable, and terrans do not make use of melee units save the firebat.

Some of these are part of the Skygeirr Platform defense system.[3]

AbilitiesEdit

Perdition turrets automatically burrow underground when not in combat, and automatically unburrow to engage. Burrowed turrets are hidden from enemies without detectors allowing them to surprise units that would otherwise out range the turret. They deal splash damage over a fairly large area, and grouped together can easily hold off large numbers of zerglings, especially with fire suppression to increase their longevity.

Notes

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past 50% structural integrity.[4]

Edit

DevelopmentEdit

Perdition turrets could be upgraded with Distortion Sensors,[5] enabling them to detect cloaked units. They could also be salvaged.
