Someone told me if they're up more Saboteurs spawn. I've never seen any difference whatsoever.

I haven't seen any evidence of this either, and have certainly actually seen turrets 'beam in' without any additional saboeurs appearing in the immediate vicinity.

Unless the case is that they don't necessarily spawn anywhere near said turret.

Someone lied.

I've seen no difference.

The only thing the turrets seem to do is to turn newb players who should be shooting saboteurs into not-really-helping-the-team turret hunters.

And if you have a reasonable weapon you should have no issues killing turrets and Saboteurs

Except sabs beam out while newb is trying to pop a silly turret that respawns 10 to 20 seconds after newb kills it.

Sorry if you think shooting turrets is fun and what you should be dong during stage 1, but it isn't. The only thing that counts towards the fleet mark math is the saboteurs. Spend time doing anything else but shooting a sab and you are just dragging down your team and your own mark count.

I think that myth has spawned from the fact that if you don't waste time killing turrets and defenders, you end up having more time to seek out and kill Saboteurs.

Makes sense. If you spend more time actually killing what you are supposed to kill instead of the things that the mission info specifically says to ignore, you're going to get more sabs.
