Laser turrets are an advanced defense building with a longer range, infinite ammo, good damage and use [[Electric system|electricity]] to operate (and a smaller amount of energy when idle). By dealing '''laser damage''' they don't face any resistances ([[enemies]] receive full damage) but have a lower rate of fire than gun turrets. Each shot costs a constant 800kJ of energy; as the shooting speed increases through upgrades, so too does the power required to keep firing.

Using laser turrets to ward off attacks can cause electricity usage spikes, so [[accumulator|accumulators]] (or [[Storage_tank#Usage_as_.22Energy-tank.22|steam storage]] and excess turbines) can be used to offset the spikes to keep the rest of the network fully functional.

Laser turrets are an advanced defense building with a longer range, infinite ammo, good damage and use electricity to operate (and a smaller amount of energy when idle). By dealing laser damage they don't face any resistances (enemies receive full damage) but have a lower rate of fire than gun turrets. Each shot costs a constant 800kJ of energy; as the shooting speed increases through upgrades, so too does the power required to keep firing.

Achievements
