What do you think of a Dart Turret?


Recommended Posts

I just couldn't ever make a build with Dart Traps that I liked.


The problem is, they limit your build.


So..... I modded in Dart Turrets.

[Just copy/pasted the AutoTurrets and changed the ammo.]

I'm currently about to hit day 300 and some resources are getting kinda scarce.

[Modded server with hard Zombies... and too much to mention here.]



these turrets just use metal for ammo and there's plenty of that stuff around.


I don't find them OP because the darts don't do a ton of damage.



What do you guys think?

That sounds like a great idea. I'd be okay with dart traps if they more reliably hit targets and actually did decent damage (even if it means consuming more darts). A dart turret actually sounds hilariously good. My old suggestion was to make the dart traps shoot 5 darts at a time like out of the corners and the middle (like a 5 on a 6-sided die).

Yeah i kinda feel that the current darttraps are lacking...


Accuracy: horrible

setup: hard-impossible (you have to build your base around them or they wont work and waste ammo)

damage: low

ressource cost: very low


in comparison the electric fence:

accuracy: hits every zombie

setup: easy-medium

damage: low(2sec stun) (medium-high when combined with spikes)

ressource cost: none.
