The "Humility" Class Turret is a Space Pirate copy of the Galactic Federation's GM-42 ‘Growler’ Class Turret. The Space Pirates were able to acquire the GF turret, though found the cannon unit inadequate. They replaced the Growler's weapon with a powerful Galvanic Accelerator Cannon, causing it to deal more damage. However, the turret is still fairly slow and can be easily dodged by fast targets. The armor is also fairly weak. Samus Aran encounters these turrets in the Space Pirate's base in Agon Wastes on planet Aether. Samus can easily destroy them by firing a Missile or a Charge Beam shot. The "Vigilance" Class Turret was built to support the Humility. They are only found in three locations in the Space Pirate mining facility: Sand Processing, Security Station A, and Biostorage Access.
Logbook entry[edit | edit source]
"Humility" Class Turret
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
Mechanism: "Humility" Class Turret
Space Pirate defense system.
Beam-weapon variant of captured Federation turret. Evade its fire with quick movement.
The Space Pirates copied captured Federation "Growler" turrets, but found the cannon unit inadequate. They replaced the Growler's weapon with a powerful galvanic accelerator cannon. The "Humility" turret packs a strong punch, but retains the Growler system's weaknesses. Fast targets can evade the crude targeting system, and the armor can't take much punishment.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In Security Station A, a turret can be found that uses the model of a ‘Growler’ Class Turret. However, its scan data is that of a Humility class turret.
