The Mega Turret firing at UNSC forces.

The Mega Turret is a giant ground stationary weapon built by the Covenant. It is basically a long-range heavy Plasma Mortar.



The Mega Turret, is an Uber unit found in Halo Wars, and is exactly what its name implies. Capable of dishing out considerable damage against enemy units, it is a Covenant Turret that fires three bolts of superheated plasma in quick succession anywhere on the map even beyond your line of sight, doing considerably high damage to nearby units. It is advised that you destroy it with a MAC Blast as soon as you see it. It can be first encountered in the level Arcadia City under the right circumstance, but otherwise an unavoidable encounter in Arcadia Outskirts, where it is an optional objective to destroy[1], and that should be done as soon as possible because of its power. There is also an unmanned Mega Turret on the level Escape. This turret must be captured early on to prevent the Covenant from manning it, but sometimes they never man it at all. It should also be noted that this turret does not appear in co-op. It appears in the middle of the skirmish map Tundra. It must be captured from rebels and garrisoned by infantry before it can be used. It does not fire automatically and must be fired and aimed manually.


The Mega Turret appears in the following Halo Wars levels:



  • Tundra - Center of the map, guarded by rebel troops.


  • This turret looks very similar to the massive turrets found on Outskirts by the beach. It is unknown if they are the same, but they won't fire upon you.


  1. Arcadia Outskirts
