The Rickenbacker V2 Laser Defense Turret is a ceiling-mounted Turret equipped with a laser rifle, which can only be found on the UNN Rickenbacker in System Shock 2. It has the same amount health points as a all other turrets.

Strategy

  • Hack all the turrets you can to get them on your side against other foes, but make sure to disable the security first.
  • These turrets are rather poorly designed when compared to the other turrets. They cannot fire on any target that gets too close, which is just as well, since they are placed in areas where they would otherwise be near-impossible to avoid or dodge.
  • The turret fires in series of three. While it's shooting, it does not rotate, but instead tries to compensate for your movement. It can fire sideways only to some degree, so if you act fast and move sideways far enough, it will not be hitting you.
  • Their explosion strangely deals no damage.
