5 zerg research points
Equips bunkers with an automated gun.
The turret was developed during the Second Great War by Raynor's Raiders, based on research into zerg spore crawlers.The Dominion is seen using them in installations such as New Folsom and the Skygeir laboratory and defence platform, but only on harder difficulties.
The Shrike turret's range and damage is equivalent to a garrisoned marine without upgrades. The turret allows an empty bunker to defend itself.
The Shrike turret upgrade and the fortified bunker upgrade are mutually exclusive. The latter increases bunker hitpoints.
We have developed an automated turret that comes standard with all bunkers. This turret, which is based on our studies of spore crawlers, adds extra firepower to manned bunkers and also allows unmanned bunkers to contribute to base defense.
