With how popular the Turret Mod was, it’s strange that Mojang or Microsoft still haven’t introduced any turrets or turret blocks to vanilla Minecraft. You still have to use mods to get your hands on these defensive structures, but thankfully there are a handful of mods ready and waiting to help you do this thing. The Turret Rebirth Mod is actually a new take on an old mod. It promises to introduce new turrets that have never been seen before. Where classic turrets used eggs, arrows or fire charges to do their damage, some of the newer turrets are way out there with their ammo.
For instance, the orbital Ion Cannon is more like a turret that you place up in the sky, or perhaps a satellite. It gathers energy from the sun and fires beams of radiation back towards the world, incinerating friends and foes alike and pretty much destroying whatever it hits. Thankfully the Turret Rebirth Mod also gives you a way to deal with these massively overpowered weapons in the forcefield generator. With enough of these in close proximity to each other, you can blanket an area of the world and protect it from the nasty ion cannon.
This mod also adds a number of blocks which exist only to support your existing turrets. One, the transmitter, will actually feed ammo into turrets within its radius of effect as the turrets need it. This is pretty convenient compared to placing chests full of ammo next to each individual turret, and the recipe is easy enough that you shouldn’t have a hard time crafting this block if you want it. It’s been several years since this mod released and many updates have been released since then, so if you want a turret mod with lots of content, this is the one to try.
