General[edit | edit source]
The Gemini Driver Turret is a Gemini Driver designed for bases. It used to be very popular amongst high-level players.
It fires a pair of large blue shells in a small spread, much like the ship variant.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Gemini Driver Turrets are one of the most powerful defenses for its level. They have the firepower of a Tachyon Beam Turret and the same maximum range as the Gladius Driver Turret, basically combining the advantages of the two turrets.
They have a high projectile speed and a small spread. With Iridium Arrays V, they often hit at least one of two shots even against faraway enemies. When combined with Storm Driver Turrets, the resulting barrage of projectiles are near impossible to dodge as the two turrets have different firing rates.
Gemini Driver Turrets have a relatively small minimum range that is difficult to exploit. They fare pretty well against blitz attacks as a Kinetic turret, with enough firepower to take out ships quickly.
Compared to the Storm Driver Turret, Gemini Driver Turrets have much lower XP, allowing your base to stay low and not get hit by overpowered Exterminator Destroyer fleets.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Gemini Driver Turrets can be dodged at long range without much effort if not enhanced by Iridium Arrays. It is recommended to concentrate your defenses and put multiple of these turrets next to each other, the sheer number of projectiles greatly increases the chance of hitting enemy targets.
Gemini Driver Turrets are considerably weaker at levels I-II, try to use the level III version as soon as you can.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Notably, this turret is quite long-ranged, unlike the ship version which is suited for medium-range combat.
- The Gemini Driver Turret was only released towards the end of the Demon Corps season, despite being the base counterpart of a VEGA Mining ship weapon.
- This explains why it has disproportionate stats compared to other base weapons of its faction.
- The equipping time of all old blueprint items for bases was reduced by half during the May 2020 update.
