Turrets deal more damage and have a longer attack range.

 Damage.png Damage Increase: 15%
 Miscellaneous effect.png Range increase: 50%

— In-game description


  • Placing a turret while out of combat and then switching from some other trait to Rifled Turret Barrels does not increase the range; the trait must be active at the time the turret is placed.
  • Prior to the removal of this trait, a bug existed where the first attack after turret deployment would not use the 15% increased damage.
