The Spargus turret game

The Spargus turret game is a minigame based on target shooting using the Spargus gun turret at the west section in Spargus facing the ocean. It was first playable during the Beat turret challenge mission assigned by Kleiver.

Minigame[edit | edit source]

Once you've entered the turret, you'll have an unlimited amount of shots to hit as many discs as possible. After missing ten discs, you'll automatically stop. You can also press the triangle button on your controller to exit the turret and quit the game midway through as well. The discs that appear are red, blue, and green. Where red awards the least amount of points, and green will award the most. The earlier you hit a disc, the higher the reward.

The discs will be fired from an invisible location at the bottom of the sea and they can move from left to right, or right to left, in an arc, or simply straight up where after they fall down again. Usually, multiple discs will be fired in a row, and more valuable discs tend to randomly appear somewhat away from your current position.

The turret auto-aims slightly, but it's recommended to avoid firing randomly as combo's can be build up by hitting multiple discs in a row without missing any shots. Thus, it is recommended to avoid spamming the fire button unless you are otherwise bound to miss a disc. Keep in mind that the combo rule only applies to this minigame after completing the mission "Beat turret challenge" - when trying to obtain the bronze, silver, and gold records. When playing the mission itself, the multiplier is not implemented yet.

In order to rack up a high score, it is also recommended to have a knowledge of the discs' patterns beforehand, not to mention you can even press the select button on your controller to pause the game. This gives you time to think about where to aim your turret and shoot next. It is ultimately difficult to reach the gold record in this minigame, but with practice and patience, it is doable.

Precursor orbs[edit | edit source]

It is possible to earn up to 9 Precursor orbs by reaching set score targets (Bronze, Silver, Gold) - 3 for each target. The orbs will be awarded once the game is over, but note that you can only get the reward for every target once. Getting them all in one go will end with you receiving all 9 orbs.

The targets are as follows;

  • Bronze - 10,000
  • Silver - 20,000
  • Gold - 40,000
