A turret emplacement armed with heavy bolters that can suppress enemy infantry. Limited firing arc. Data version: 3.18

The Tarantula Turret is a stationary gun turret constructed by the Techmarine hero. The turret comes armed with two heavy bolters that suppress infantry, and it can be upgraded to two missile launchers effective against vehicles.

  • Higher damage than the turret built by the Plague Champion hero, but smaller arc (100° against 120°)
  • Overused by beginners, often effective in low-skill matches but failing miserably against experienced opponents
  • Can be exploited on some maps with proper support
