Turantul I vs Skorpio (Turantul 2)

Post by The Leonid Guy » Sat Sep 11, 2010 5:56 pm

Which one do you prefer? I like the original, just because of its shape and the diamond-shaped rockets. I know the Skorpio is bigger, and more powerful, but I just like the T1.

Yep, Turantul 1 may look cool but it has poor guns (the user version in MD is a bit better though)... In terms of firepower it's one of the weakest hosts whereas the Skorpio is probably the most powerful, especially in MD.

True, the T1 is weaker, and easier to take out, whereas the Skorpio is a much more formidable HS.

I like the way the projectile sounds on the turantul I when it is coming at you. But as already been said, T2 is better suited.

That sound used to give me nightmares.

I like the projecticles of the T1, because it looks like of the speedy... I don't like the one of Skorpio, because are cannon shots, not plasma shots (a lot of better :D)
Trying to do a comeback...

Ugh, that high-pinched screech sends shiffers up my spine.... gotta say objectively the Scorpio is hands-down superior, but the Tarantul I has the spook-factor.

Hmm...

Turantul 1:

Pros:
- Is the cooler of the two appearance wise. :)

- Has tremendous knockback against aerial targets with its turrets- particularly helicopters.

- Arguably most memorable host station turrets around. :P (Their high-pitched screech of an approach...)

- Its turrets seem to have a slightly higher range than most other host station turrets.

- Turret projectiles have a decent speed- making them hard to evade at medium range.

Cons:
- Utterly helpless against ground targets due to the low number and low power of its turrets.

- Low number of turrets make it vulnerable to hordes of any unit type- even helicopters, which are what it fares best against.

----------

Turantul 2 (Scorpio):

Pros:
- Plentiful supply of powerful turrets

- High armor

Cons:
- Not nearly as cool as the Turantul 1. :P

- Arguably the least memorable turrets of all the host stations. :P

- Turrets have lower range than Turantul 1's turrets.

- Turret projectiles seem easier to dodge...

----------

So yeah, I much prefer the Turantul 1, despite the Turantul 2's advantages. :)

Turantul 1 was a only clue I have in my memories to search this game again... though demo.
I like both of them.

The demo was awesome. I think I tried modifying the demo's levels to replace the T1 with the T2, but it didn't work. You could play as the T2 in multiplayer, though.
