Mortar And Pestle
The Auto Turret is a fully automatic turret which can automatically target and fire on enemy dinos, players, both, or all (which includes wild dinos) within its range, as well as RPGs and Grenade. The fact that the turret does not need any guidance makes it an invaluable resource to defend against raiding, whilst your tribe is offline. This turret uses Advanced Rifle Ammo. The Auto Turret requires electricity to run.
The Plant Species X is an organic version of the Auto Turret and provides similar value.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Turrets can be customized to attack players, tamed creatures, and/or wild creatures. Turrets can also be set to a custom range. Turrets can also shoot above and below — assuming they have a line of sight of the target — making them a good defense against flyers. Auto Turrets can also shoot Grenades and Rocket Propelled Grenades out of the sky, useful against raiders.
Settings[edit | edit source]
Range[edit | edit source]
The Auto Turret has multiple range settings, which correspond to the following distances:
- Low: 20 meters (approx. 6.7 foundations)
- Medium: 53 meters (approx. 17.7 foundations)
- High: 81 meters (approx. 27 foundations) Note: Movie below mentioned approx. 20 Foundations
Targeting[edit | edit source]
There are four targeting settings. (All of these settings ignore players and tamed creatures belonging to your tribe and alliances.)
- All Targets: Attacks players, tamed creatures, and wild creatures
- Players or Tamed Creatures Only: Attacks only players and tamed creatures, ignoring wild creatures. (Warning: includes newborn creatures—turrets set on this mode will attack baby creatures as soon as they hatch.)
- Only Players: Attacks only players and mounted tames.
- Only Wild: Attacks only wild creatures
Alarm[edit | edit source]
The alarm setting will give intruding players time to leave the area before they are shot at. Alarms take some time to reset, so if the intruding player hides within the turret's range, they will be shot at immediately without another alarm.
- 4 Second Warning
- 2 Second Warning
- No Warning (default)
Note: The warning doesn't delay the projectiles shot.
Damage Multipliers[edit | edit source]
- As of patch 231.4, turrets do 2.2x damage vs. all dinos.
There is no longer any separate multiplier for flying dinos.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
- As of 242.0, the Auto Turret can no longer be built on Quetzal, Brontosaurus, Mosasaurus, Plesiosaur, or Paracer platform saddles. Any existing turrets on such platforms will no longer fire. This is a server option of "OverrideStructurePlatformPrevention=true". Otherwise they're now only allowed on Rafts and non-moving Bases.
- The Auto Turret cannot be damaged by the Tek Rifle or Rex Tek Saddle blasts.
