Wieżyczka Strażnicza

The Sentry Turret

Wieżyczki Strażnicze mają wygląd małego robota z trzema nogami. Nie są w stanie wykonać żadnego ruchu, jednak mogą otworzyć swoje "ramiona" z obu stron in order to reveal two gatling guns. The central part of the chassis holds their red 'eye', which emits a targeting laser.

When Turrets are unaware of the player's presence, they will maintain a standby state and will remain motionless with their guns retracted. Moving into their angle of sight however, will cause Turrets to deploy their guns with a voice line before opening fire. They will continue to fire until the player is dead or moves out of sight. If the latter occurs, Turrets will briefly search for the player (as indicated by the movement of the targeting laser), after which they will revert to a standby state.

Turrets can be avoided, disabled or destroyed in a number of ways. The most common method is knocking them over, causing them to flail and fire wildly before deactivating. This can be done by picking them up and dropping them, or using any object to push them. Additionally, the Thermal Discouragement Beam or Emancipation Grid can be used to completely destroy them. It should be noted that once a Turret has been knocked over and deactivated, restoring it to an upright position will reactivate it and the Turret will function normally once again.

Rocket Turret

The Rocket Turret

The Rocket Turret is a unique enemy in Portal. It appears as a personality core outfitted with a rocket launcher. Upon activation, it will slowly lock onto Chell and emit a sound before launching a rocket. It plays a vital role in the battle with GLaDOS, as rockets need to be sent through Portals in order to hit her, causing personality cores to detach.

Defective Turret

The Defective Turret

Defective Turrets, also called "Crap Turrets" by Wheatley, are incomplete, ammo-less versions of Sentry Turrets. Unlike normal Sentry Turrets, Defective Turrets speak in a masculine, less robotic voice.

They are harmless to Chell, many times making comments such as "If anyone asks, I killed you". Their voice lines seem to imply they are blind, but they are still aware of Chell's presence. They are first encountered in Chapter 5: The Escape.

Frankenturret

The Frankenturret

Frankenturrets are bizarre Sentry Turret-Weighted Storage Cube hybrids created by Wheatley in order to complete test chambers when he had no test subjects. They are first introduced in Chapter 8: The Itch.

Frankenturrets do not speak, and instead emitting incomprehensible chirping sounds. They act as the Chapter's replacement for Storage Cubes, their only difference being that Frankenturrets will hop around aimlessly while not placed on a button. When picked up by Chell, they retract their legs inside their cubes. If they fall over on their sides or upside down, they will wave their legs trying to get up.

Animal King Turret

The Animal King Turret

The Animal King is a unique turret that is only referred to in an Aperture Science slideshow entired "Animal King Takeover" in Chapter 1: The Courtesy Call. The Turret is considerably larger than its Sentry Turret brethren, and appears to operate in exactly the same way. It can be distinguished from ordinary turrets by its immense size, crown and leopard skin-detailed chassis. In the context of the slideshow, the Animal King Turret is used as an example of an entity or organisation capable of taking control of Earth which "...refuses to, or is incapable of listening to reason".

The Animal Turret appears only once at the end of the game, when Chell is travelling to the surface after defeating Wheatley.

Trivia

  • When GLaDOS attempts to kill Wheatley with a paradox in the beginning of Chapter 8: The Itch, every Frankenturret is fried, implying that they are smarter than Wheatley.
