View Full Version : turrets respawn (bug)

This is normally only annoying, but sometimes it can kind of ruin part of a level. Immediately after destroying a turret (rocket, normal, laser, doesn't seem to matter) it will sometimes immediately respawn, sometimes up to 5-10 times. When there are other enemies around this can get quite obnoxious. It happens in both episodes, and is the only major bug I've found (assuming this isn't expected behaviour, as it is rather random and there are no points awarded). Sometimes approaching a turret from a different location will allow me to properly defeat it.
The mainframe mission in ep2 is particularly annoying due to this. Using OS X Lion.

This may not be a bug. Because there are repair turrets. If a repair turret is near enemies, it will heal them up.

It's happened with the same isolated turret - I destroyed it continuously from one direction over 5 times before dying, then went around the back and it stayed dead the first time I blew it up. No other enemies nearby. They definitely are destroyed and then another spawns on top when this happens.

The repair turrets are sometimes hard to see - try to notice if there is a beam firing from somewhere when you destroy the turret. If not, I need you to find out what mission this is in.

Hrmmm ok. I thought those beams were another variation of an offensive turret - they shoot a thin red beam? I could have sworn it was isolated, but I'll be on the lookout for those beams from now on.

Yeah, maybe they are a bit too close in color to the offensive beams - good point.

Now that I know what I'm looking for it all makes sense - there are definitely times where it makes sense to go around another direction. :) It's a thinner kind of orange/red beam, and the turret itself has very little health. They were often healing from off-screen, and combined with the explosions I never really put it together.
Light green is an obvious "heal" color. :)
