Construct - Assault Turret

Constructs are mechanical allies deployed to help with combat. They can be used in both singleplayer and multiplayer gameplay.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Constructs aren't explained during gameplay with the only information on the skills/profile pages briefly explaining what each one will "do".

Constructs can be combat-focused and attack enemies, defense-based and help allies, or be a mixture of both combat-focused and defense-focused at the same time.

Some constructs can be upgraded to prime and/or detonate power combos.

Each of the constructs is clearly named a "tech construct" in the descriptions except for the Combat Drone and the Defense Drone.

Types[edit | edit source]

Combat Drone[edit | edit source]

Combat Drone construct

The Engineer profile while active has the ability to deploy a Combat Drone. This construct is both combat-focused and defense-focused at the same time.

Defense Drone[edit | edit source]

Defense Drone construct

The Defense Drone construct is only found in multiplayer. This is a defense-focused construct compared to other combat-focused constructs. This construct does have the ability to defend itself and attack if required.

Deploy a holographic omni-drone to boost your shields and electrocute nearby enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The number of construct kills can be tracked on the Accomplishments tab in the statistics menu.
  • Friendly constructs in multiplayer like an Assault Turret or a Remnant VI can be shield boosted for the challenge Shield Boost Use as many times as possible and will always give the standard +40 Support XP reward even if they aren't damaged.
  • While it seems counter intuitive, it is possible using the Kett Carfalon to melee strike a friendly construct like an Assault Turret or Remnant VI and this will restore health the same as striking an enemy. No damage appears to take place to the construct from repeatedly performing this action.
