Creating rocket and bullet firing turrets is very easy and can add a different obstacle to your map.

Bullet (Floor) Turrets

1. Select the entity tool (Shift + E) and in the dropdown menu select npc_portal_turret_floor.

2. Then place it where you would like it on the map and rotate it so it's facing the correct direction.

3. Right-click on it and go to Properties.

-Set Damage pushes player to ""Yes"" if you want the player pushed back by the turret.

-Under ""Flags"", check Autostart and Fast retire. This will cause your turret to automatically start and retire fast (like the ones in Portal).

4. That's all there is to it! You can create a box around your turret to prevent it from being knocked down if you like.

Rocket (Ground) Turrets

1. Select the entity tool (Shift + E) and in the dropdown menu select npc_rocket_floor.

2. Then place it where you would like it on the map and rotate it so it's facing the correct direction.

Note:Under ""Flags"", check Disabled if you don't want it to be active right away.

3. That's it! To make it more Portal-esque, you should hide the turret under a door in the floor and have it raise up once the player comes near.
