Hardened pipes are expensive, and it requires some know-how to make them. However, they come with strong resistances and are ideal for use at the front-line. If biters or spitters always destroy the pipes that supply your flamethrower or water turrets, you should consider replacing them with hardened pipes!
"Sniper and shotgun Turrets, Uranium shotgun ammo, a Sniper Gun, and more to come …" Sometimes, less is more! This mod adds options to "Combat by Samuel" that enable you to reduce range, damage modifier, maximum health, and resistances of sniper and shotgun turrets. This mod now includes the (updated) code from "Combat by Samuel" so you can continue playing with sniper turrets etc. in Factorio 0.18. I will revert this change once "Combat by Samuel" has been updated!
Adds a defensive tower using the car's gun. Slow shooting and easily destroyed, but cheap, it is meant for early defense (no research required :D). Adds a later game Gatling Turret with extra high fire rate and some range boost over the standard gun turret of the base game. Has support for low resolution and high resolution graphics since all the graphics come from the base game. Also has support for Krastorio 2.
Adds barbed-spikes, which can be placed down and hurts and slows down any enemy that walks on it. They can be upgraded to: Reinforced (more health and damage) Slowing (slows down more) Poison (deals extra damage) or any combination of the three. Original mod developers: MatheFactor and Kabaril.
