| ||關於the turrets that appear in the various Fallout games，參見Turret。|
Automated turrets can either be mounted to the ceiling or the floor. Those mounted on the ceiling fire conventional ammunition at an automatic rate, whereas floor mounted turrets fire laser beams similar to those of the laser rifle, but in a much faster succession. Both varieties have unlimited ammunition. As a rule, odd numbered turret models use conventional bullets and even numbered turrets use laser projectiles.
Automated turrets are often found in military installations or areas of historical value. Although not too damaging at lower levels, they can be quite deadly if they surprise the player, or if they are in groups. Both types of turrets can be frenzied by shooting either the targeting chip (on ground units) or the lens (on ceiling units). Once frenzied, the turrets will fire on everything they see. All turrets can be shut down using the Robotics Expert perk if the player can reach them unnoticed while sneaking. They can also be deactivated via nearby terminals (if any).
Alien turret (Mothership Zeta)編輯
Alien turrets are always ceiling-mounted and can be harder to see, due to their much smaller size. They shoot energy beams similar to the alien atomizer and disintegrator in rapid salvos of five shots. The individual pulses aren't highly damaging, but can take a chunk out of the player's health if the Lone Wanderer gets caught out in the open for too long.
While they cannot be shut down or frenzied via terminal, it is possible to remotely detonate them using nearby switches aboard the Mothership. They explode in a blast of green plasma, similar to a plasma grenade. Like normal turrets, they are unable to shoot directly below them and can be shut down using the Robotics Expert perk if the player is able to reach them by jumping while crouched.
Mark I (Capital Wasteland)編輯
These can be found in buildings and on bridges and ceilings. A couple are found at Fort Independence. These turrets are often used by organizations such as the Brotherhood Outcasts, but can be found widely across the wasteland. Even raiders use them as sentries. They can be frenzied just like any other turret when the player cripples the lens. Template:Stats creature FO3 Template:Stats creature FO3Template:Stats creature FO3
Mark I (Operation: Anchorage)編輯
These turrets are found throughout Operation: Anchorage, defending various strongholds in round bunkers, just outside the facilities. Template:Stats creature FO3 Template:Stats creature FO3Template:Stats creature FO3
Mark III, V, VII編輯
Mark II (Capital Wasteland)編輯
These turrets can be found both inside and outside buildings, as well as on bridges. All floor-mounted models have laser weaponry and can be frenzied when their targeting chip is destroyed. Some can be found outside the Citadel. Template:Stats creature FO3 Template:Stats creature FO3Template:Stats creature FO3
Mark II (Operation: Anchorage)編輯
These turrets are found on the Chinese compound wall during the final quest in Operation Anchorage. As expected at this stage, these turrets have much higher Hit Points than the Mark I bunker turrets. Template:Stats creature FO3 Template:Stats creature FO3Template:Stats creature FO3
Mark IV, VI, VIII編輯
Alien turret (Mothership Zeta)編輯
A standard turret found aboard Mothership Zeta. It has alien beam weaponry, unlike other types of automated turrets.

- Turrets are generally controlled from a nearby terminal. Using the Science skill to hack the terminal will allow the Lone Wanderer to reprogram the targeting parameters, which will allow them to either reset its targeting parameters, causing it to target any character (not just the player, similar to the frenzy effect), or shut it down completely. After being turned off, the turret can be reactivated at the same terminal if desired.
- The ceiling-based turrets have a blind spot directly below them where they cannot attack. They also rotate rather slowly following a mark, so they can be outrun or circle-strafed at close distance.
- The Enclave officer at Camp RHO carries a special key card named "Experimental Rho ID." When acquired, the turrets in the camp will no longer be hostile.
- It is possible to sneak up on unaware turrets and disable them with the Robotics Expert perk, as long as they are reachable. It is not necessary to be hidden, simply being momentarily out of sight is enough to deactivate them.
- Turrets, like eyebots, cannot be looted for scrap metal when killed, as they either explode into small pieces, or disappear altogether. However, sometimes floor-mounted turrets will not explode, yielding some scrap metal.
