The Ballista Turret is a stationary turret used for firing Spear Bolts and Chain Bolas. Players must mount the turret to control and fire it.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The weight of the materials is incredible and will quickly encumber even the largest of dinos that aren't designed to take the load, even encumbering low level brontosauruses. The Ballista Turret is much lighter once assembled.
  • The Ballista Turret can no longer be used to tame the Titanosaur.
