Rail Turrets Add-on

The rail turret is a weapon mount which can move on rails and fire off three different types of projectiles. It is best suited for areas which you need guarded at all times, but don't have the time to guard yourself. For example, this could include the area surrounding your base or anywhere else sneaky hostiles frequently appear.

How to use a rail turret?

Place them down on rails and they will have similar functionalities to a minecart, but with the addition that they can shoot enemy targets. Build a railway around your base and have your turrets automatically move around it. Just make sure to use some powered rails and redstone to automate them. You can also place them down on the ground.

The turret can shoot three different types of projectiles and those include arrows, fireballs and shulker projectiles.

  • iOS / Android: Long press on the turret and press the button to change the projectile type
  • Windows 10: Right-click on the turret to change the projectile type

The turrets will automatically attack any type of hostile mob. This includes mobs such as spiders and zombies.
