- "Creative assholes, aren't they? Looks like they're using old Lancers?"
- —Baird, upon first seeing a Turret in action
The Multi-Turrets were multi-weapon, multi-purpose stationary turrets created by the Savage Locust as a replacement for the Troika, and could have various weapons mounted on them, such as Mk 1 Lancer Assault Rifles, Mk 2 Lancer Assault Rifles (multiplayer only), Gnasher Shotguns and Boomshot Grenade Launchers.
What the Savage Locust lack in technology, they more than make up for in ingenuity. With no Troika Turrets to be found, they created improvised gun racks to mount and fire multiple weapons simultaneously. They can swap in whatever weapons they can salvage, whether it be Retro Lancers, Gnasher shotguns or the Boomshot Grenade Launcher.
Multiplayer and Horde 2.0
The Retro version of the Multi-Turret is available to buy in Horde 2.0 in Gears of War 3 for 1,500 dollars. Turrets are used for decimating small groups of enemy troops, especially Wretches. They are also useful when a Brumak comes into the fray, as you can use the Multi-Turret to destroy the Brumak's wrist-mounted chain guns. The Retro Lancer Multi-Turret upgrade is the initial manable turret, which costs $1500 to build and requires a Level 4 Barrier. It holds 600 rounds of ammunition.
