With the start of SWC Event Lucky Break (Solo Movie Event #2) - Week #3 - we saw the introduction of the A-LT Turret Slicer (P006 Droid) Mercenary Unit for both Factions.
HOW GOOD WILL THIS UNIT BE?
The Unit Description reads as follows:
These A-LT Utility Droids have been modified to bypass walls and overload the circuits of one turret. This disables the droid, while forcing the turret to ignore enemy troops and shoot at defenders instead. The overload triggers a series of small explosions, finally destroying the turret.
- With a 1:1 Ratio between "Turret" and "Deployed A-LT Turret Slicer" combined with 13 UC and Cook-Time of 6 Minutes (Level 1) to 11 Minutes+ (Level 10) compounded by the Movement Speed of 20 (Slow) the usefulness of this Units is highly questionable.
- While the "feature" of this Unit to cause the effected Turret to "ignore enemy troops and shoot at defenders instead" is nice, you still have the Turrets Range and Favorite Target coupled with availability (or unavailability) of any "defenders" within "range" that adds additonal questions as to the usefulness of this Unit.
