# 1 Turrets blocked by own ship

Does anyone else have a problem with their own turrets being blocked by their own ship? This has happened for awhile now...

I'm not sure how to read that screenshot.

You should watch your actual Turret power tray and see if they go on cooldown consistently.

Well...that's odd...

Can't say I've ever encountered this myself. Then again I had no idea this kind of collision detection occurred with space weapons.

^this

It was said a few patches ago, that turret would fire from the closest hardpoint on your ship.
ie if you have 2 turrets aft, but are facing fore, they would visibly fire from the fore.

what Mattius said, what your turrets firing cycle in their power tray, and see if when firing that they are cycling.

So i have 3 turrets on the back...and they don't fire from the front... The turret is actually hitting the back of my ship...it happens all the time now. If I pitch up or down the turrets are fine but if i'm almost level with my target...my ship blocks 2 out of 3 turrets and the screen shot shows the explosion / impact of what happens when it occurs.
