Strategy[edit | edit source]

Fission Turret can provide you one Attackattack each turn throughout its Lifespan5 Lifespan. Its AbilityAbility gets you a burst of Green resource3 green for the cost of Energy3 energy through self-sacrifice.

Fission Turret's GoldGold and tech cost is rather similar to a Tarsier, with one Green resourcegreen instead of one Red resourcered. However, Fission Turret has a lifespan of Lifespan5 instead of Tarsier's Build time2 build time.

Generally, the best use of a Fission Turret would be to let it attack each turn and use its AbilityAbility the turn before it dies due to LifespanLifespan. You have to make sure to have Energy3 energy at your disposal for this specific turn. Therefore, Fission Turret has good synergy with Engineer producing units, such as Hellhound or Sentinel.

Fission Turret's AbilityAbility gives you the Green resourcegreen for one high green cost units like Asteri Cannon or Cluster Bolt on a single Conduit. In sets with such units, you might want to buy one Fission Turret each turn to be able to continuously pop them. It also makes Forcefield very efficient, as the essentially free Green resourceGreen resourceGreen resource comes for a loss of 1Gold or so at most, Engineers are non efficient soak.

Fission Turret can also be use as a fast source of Attackdamage at any point in the game when you want to put pressure on your opponent immediately even if you do not plan on using its ability.

Openings[edit | edit source]

Player 1 has an efficient way to get the first Conduit while cutting only a small amount of economy if Fission Turret is in the set:

  1. DD
  2. DC
  3. DD + Fission Turret
