The Alimbic Turrets are automated sentries designed by the ancient Alimbic race to guard their territories in the Tetra Galaxy that appear in Metroid Prime Hunters. There are three different versions: v1.0, v1.4 and v2.7. The turrets are equipped with laser motion detection and DNA identification technology, and will fire on any non-Alimbic entities that wander within range.


Alimbic Turrets have backward-leaning bases plated made from dark brown metal. Their long, cylindrical barrels are capable of turning in any direction, and have a brightly colored, crystalline core whose hue varies with the model.

Alimbic Turret v1.0Edit

Mph turret 1.0

The Alimbic Turret v1.0 is the weakest and most basic turret model, distinguished by its light blue core. They can fire either an energy projectile similar to the Power Beam or non-homing Missiles. Whatever type of attack they use, the Logbook scan for the turret does not change. Alimbic Turret 1.0s appear on the Celestial Archives, Alinos and Arcterra.

If there is a Guardian near an Alimbic Turret v1.0 and the turret has not yet noticed Samus, the turret will fire on the Guardian. The first Alimbic Turret in the Arcterra Gateway will fire at Samus only if she looks at the Turret. If Samus has the Imperialist equipped and zoomed and observes this Turret on a platform that is almost level with the Turret, it will seemingly not notice her.

Alimbic Turret v1.4Edit

Weapons Complex

The green Alimbic Turret v1.4 is a modified version of the 1.0, which is able to quickly fire multiple shots without overheating. Its projectiles resemble those of the Battlehammer, though they are significantly smaller and and fire in grouped bursts instead of repeating. It remains unknown whether the Turret 1.4 uses the same miniature nuclear reactor technology as the Battlehammer, though both are most easily destroyed by electricity-based weaponry like the Volt Driver. The 1.4 models are found only is found on the Vesper Defense Outpost.

Alimbic Turret v2.7Edit

Stasis Bunker

The Alimbic Turret v2.7 is the last known model of turret produced, and has a bright red core. This turret is modified to fire powerful and highly precise lasers that are similar in nature to the Imperialist. Although its shots are sparse, their strength and accuracy make the v2.7 a significant threat, and the most dangerous model of Alimbic turret. However, it shares a laser similar to the Imperialist, so the Shock Coil can make short work of it. It is found in the Vesper Defense Outpost and on Arcterra.
