Change Log[]

Patch 7.2.2[]

  • QoL: revised the placement logic to allow for more flexibility on where Turrets can be placed.
    • Instead of a radius of a few metres that needed to be free around the Turret so it could be placed, it now suffices if the Turret model itself can be placed down.


  • Turrets can detect the presence of The Xenomorph even when it is Undetectable or inside the tunnel system below the Map.
  • Escaping with the Remote Flame Turret triggers the Score Event "Turret On The Move".
