Similar to the gunpod, it fires dual dark eco blasts non-stop until it overheats at which point it will stop firing, though the fire rate will already slow down noticeably by then. The heat meter is visible on inner ring of the firing reticule when operating the turret. On the outer ring it will display the health of the turret, which consists of sixteen segments. When reduced to zero the turret explodes, killing the user as well, though it will slowly regenerate these segments on its own.
The Dark Makers operating the turrets are hard to avoid, but can easily be killed with a single hit.
