In a nutshell, the Turret Master is a character with the ability to summon a stationary defense in the form of an automated Turret. Bear in mind this needn't be a literal turret: it can be anything that fulfills the general role of a stationary defense, even if it's just ''VideoGame/{{Torchlight}}'''s stick that shoots fire.

What exactly this ability entails varies a bit: Some suffer from {{Weak Turret Gun}}s, while others are invulnerable but on a restricting timer. Oddly enough, it's more common for a character like this to be fairly powerful even without this ability than to be a SquishyWizard as TheMinionMaster commonly is. This ability is more common in Rogue- or Archer-styled classes. Classes like this can also usually form other traps, as well.

* The Imperial Guard's hero unit in Warhammer 40,000: ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'', the Lord General, has several turrets at his disposal. As does the Space Marine Techmarine in the second game. Tau Broadside Battlesuits are an interesting variation: the Tau don't have turrets in the traditional sense, but Broadsides can "Entrench", making them immobile but activating the [[{{BFG}} BFGs]] on their backs, essentially turning themselves ''into'' turrets.

** The
second game. mission of Retribution's campaign has your forces pursued by a Baneblade, which you lack the weaponry to defeat. As you progress, you destroy several targeting cogitators, which causes turrets to shoot their own men, and ends by causing enormous PlasmaCannon-equipped turrets to shoot the Baneblade.

** The Dark Eldar don't have turrets except those on Listening Posts. Instead, their Torture Pits can be upgraded to deal damage and knockback to nearby troops.



** ''VideoGame/NovaCovertOps'' gives an option to make the turrets deal line damage.

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'' has Torbjörn and Symmetra who can both deploy different kinds of sentry guns, while one of Bastion's two forms is a Gatling turret for point defense.

to:

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'' has Torbjörn ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'':
** Torbjorn is a fairly traditional FPS example, with the ability to deploy a single stationary turret
and upgrade or heal it by whacking it with his repair hammer. The turret deals decent damage and automatically fires at anything within its fairly generous range, making it a pain for flankers whose usual defense is remaining unnoticed and/or moving too fast to be reliably focused down. Torb's ultimate ability, Molten Core, vastly upgrades the turret's firepower and survivability to the point that it requires a coordinated team effort to take it down, and it's usually easier just to wait for the duration to expire if possible.
**
Symmetra who can both deploy different kinds of up to six small sentry guns, while one turrets that attack with a homing laser that deals a small amount of Bastion's two forms damage and slows the target down. The most common strategy is to deploy them around a Gatling turret chokepoint where they can focus their fire on an intruder, nicknamed a "carwash" because it resembles an automatic carwash shooting jets of water at a car. She earns an achievement for point defense.hitting an enemy with all six turrets plus her own handheld homing laser at once.
