Deployable Turrets

Turret skills use ground targeting.

— In-game description


  • Throwing a turret into a wall will cause it to stay in the wall. Most of the time it will be obstructed by the wall it is in.
  • Sometimes a location will show the ground targeting symbol, but the target will have no collision. The turret will continue on its arc until it hits something with collision.
  • Throwing a turret at the corner of a ledge will cause the turret to default to standing on the ledge.
  • Thrown turrets are unaffected by reflection.
