The weapon control console needs to be powered by the Weapon Console and is used to control the Submarine's Turret. One player has to actively interact with it to damage exterior enemies. He is often named the Gunner, see Tutorial & Strategy Guide. It has 2 separate turret modes which can be switched by the gunner:
The Minigun is a reliable source of damage and most importantly completely free and recoilless. Even if you packed with torpedoes it's a good idea to keep them for bosses and dangerous enemies. Even not upgraded minigun is more than enough to deal with 1-2 weak or slow enemies if your gunner have a good aim,
Bots while mediocre fighters are pretty OP as gunners because while they can be confused by a charging enemies and sometimes pic not optimal targets, but they have perfect aim and know perfectly where enemies are. Also, it's your only source of damage if you tell the bot to shoot because they can't use canon which is another large drawback.
The cannon is the secondary turret state. It requires ammunition in the form of torpedoes. It deals large amounts of damage to any enemies caught in its explosion radius, but has a high recoil and requires constant reloads. Assigning two power points to the Weapon Power Console will increase the Torpedo Tubes available from 1 to 3. The Torpedoes can be upgraded with multiple different upgrades once they are found and picked up, all of which will add different, stackable effects.
- E - Occupies and exits the console.
- W, S - Rotates the Turret, allowing the gunner to aim at the enemies.
- A, D - Switches between the Minigun and Cannon
- Spacebar - Makes the turret shoot, provided the requirements are met
