Light Turret is an Engineer Ability in Brink.


This lets you plant a light Turret on flat surfaces. It only scans a small area, but once it acquires a target, it will turn 360 degrees to track it. It's status is shown on the HUD at bottom left: if damaged, any friendly Engineer can repair it. If you place a new Turret, the old one will disappear.


The Light Turret is a deployable item to help enforce defense in an area. As it is the lightest of the deployable turrets, it only deals damage comparable with a Submachine Gun. It is a prerequisite for more advanced turrets though.

Player Notes[]

  • Due to its low damage, this turret is best supported by its owner to maximise survivability.
  • Like all turrets, it benefits greatly from ambush tactics. Particularly in locations that can't be seen until enemies are busy interacting with objectives (i.e. Command Posts).
  • Further, it benefits greatly from collaborating Landmine placement to cover its blind spots.
  • Turrets can also function as alarms by placing them where enemies will have to destroy them before passing, also slowing their approach and forcing them to use ammo or a grenade.
