They have a huge range, attack, and health, shoot half as swiftly as other turrets, and require Incendiary Cores to upgrade. Their range covers the whole base and most of the grounds, making Specter, Chimera, and Devastator alone useless—mostly, sometimes the game fails to make the troop check whether a turret is in range—to take out the Command Center until these are gone.
