This addon replaces the shulker with a total of four turrets and each with a unique weapon. The turret is a small weapon mount which houses the mechanism of a projectile-firing weapon. It has a 360-degree viewability which means it can turn in any direction to detect possible hostile mobs. If one is detected it will immediately attempt to eliminate the target.
How does it work?
To get a turret in the Overworld you will need to use the shulker spawn egg. It might be possible to bring a shulker from the End to the Overworld (and here’s a guide for that) but don’t take my word for it.
Standard turrets are purple and that’s how they will initialy look like once you’ve found or spawned one. You can upgrade the turret by long pressing on it (or right-click if you are on Windows 10) with either of the following dyes.
- Blue Turret (Lapis Lazuli) – Shoots arrows
- Purple Turret (Standard) – Shoots shulker projectiles
- Yellow Turret (Dandelion Yellow) – Shoots thunder snowballs
- Green Turret (Lime Dye) – Shoots fireballs
The turrets have a range of 64 blocks and they will be a great upgrade for your base. Place one down at a few different strategic positions and let them deal with the monsters.
The different turrets have different attacks. The green ones shoot large fireballs and as a result I recommend that you place them not too close to your creations to avoid possible accidents.
It’s really the ultimate addon for anyone who want to up their security for their bases in-game!
