This is the most powerful turret laser in either game, it does almost enough damage a second to be considered a serious weapon, but not enough; especially considering its placid 120 mps speed. Even so, do not attack a Shivan Megafunk Turret if your shields are damaged, if the shot goes through it could seriously mess with your fighter / bomber.

The best turret in the game, but that doesn't say much considering how weak all blob turrets are.

If there's a gap in your shields and you're unlucky enough to be hit by this thing, it will rape you. However, the blobs move so ridiculously slow that a GTF Apollo can outrun them on afterburners.

Nasty for a turret (which doesn't say much), but here's a mystery: Why the heck is it called a "Megafunk" turret?
