    resolved: weapon upgrades do not affect turrets

    For those of you who don't frequent the bug database, I thought you might find this interesting. And I recommend you read the bug database.... interesting stuff in general.

    http://www.natural-selection.org/bt/...bug_id=0000465

    Presently, in b4a, arms lab upgrades do not affect sentry turrets. It seems that this will be changing soon:

    turret-2.wav - level 1 upgrades
    turret-3.wav - level 2 upgrades
    turret-4.wav - level 3 upgrades

    Of course, if the arms lab gets destroyed and the damage upgrades are lost, turrets should be affected too.

    Turrets are meant to be skulk/gorge/lerk deterrents, not fade/onos deterrents. They aren't supposed to be "good in the end game". I still find the best use for a TF to be either sieging or dropping it in front of a fleeing fade/onos/lerk so they get blocked. Turrets will still be worthless, even with upgraded damage.

    No, seige cannons are not affected by the upgrades now, and the seige cannons will not be affected by the upgrades in the future.
