Is there a limit to the amount of Turrets you can lay?

I can create solid walls of turrets in the demo, is there some sort of resource that limits the building of these things?

How do you create them? You can only build them when you have the appropiate crate powerup; you're unlikely to get more than 1 or 2 such powerups in the course of a game.

In a blitzkrieg game I had four of them down, so at least that many.

I think it's limited to the amount of power-ups you can have.
We're the same. Nuisances with nowhere to go.

Depends on the gametype.
Most modes have an unlimited turret count.

The limit should be "However many crates you find", usually (likely exceptions are Rocket Riot and Blitzkreig).

If you're making these walls without the crates, something's very wrong.

He is probably using the exploit that is fixed in 1.0.6.

But you can't create turrets with that.
I think.

Well, yes, but obviously I wasn't going to say that until it was fixed. :P

Perhaps this was the infinite turret tutorial bug?

I picked up one Turret crate in the demo and it enabled me to lay down unlimited amounts of turrets. It was in the demo so it hadn't been patched. A bug I suppose, fun at the time though.

Uh, the demo stays up to date like the full version. After all, they're the same files.

Was this in tutorial 2? If so, I expect they haven't fixed a bug. If it wasn't, I suspect that's a new one. ;)
