* Gun turrets are your first defensive building.

== History ==
* They are cheap and ammunition can be refilled by [[Inserters]].
 
* You can place bullets into them by hand. But you should automate the process instead. Use a chest, a belt, and some inserters to do the job.
 
* They don't need any power to operate. The only requirement is that they have ammo inside them.
 
* With upgrades (gun + turret defense upgrades) and [[Piercing rounds magazine]] gun turrets are a much more damaging weapon than laser turrets '''( [http://www.factorioforums.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4363&start=20 see thread])
 
* Gun turrets are always sized 1x2 even when rotated which makes them somewhat problematic to use with rotated [[Blueprint]]s. It's no problem to mirror the blueprint, but when rotated by 90° they may 'overwrite' an inserter or let one tile free between them. The workaround to this is to use two blueprints, one for north-south and one for west-east usage.
 
* The gun turret damage upgrade stacks multiplicatively with the bullet damage upgrade. Fully upgraded this means 2.2*2.2=4.84 times as much damage; 9.68 damage with regular bullets or 24.2 damage with armor-piercing bullets, an armor piercing bullet kills small enemies in one shot, and deals more damage to a heavy biter than a laser shot does.

Gun turret damage bonus stacks with ammo bonuses

Gun turrets are defensive structures and are the first automatic defense to be unlocked. They use magazines for ammunition which can be refilled manually or by inserters. Unlike laser turrets, they do not require power and can operate practically anywhere as long as they have sufficient ammunition. On the downside, this means that ammo must be periodically replenished.

Without upgrades, the gun turret has the same fire rate as the man-portable submachine gun, doing equal damage per second. The gun turret receives bonuses from technologies that improve bullets so it keeps pace with the submachine gun as those improve, and they also receive bonuses from their own damage upgrade, potentially giving the turret a much higher DPS. These two infinitely-researchable damage effects stack multiplicatively.
