Turrets can be found commonly in parts of Rapture. You will find many enemies around turrets, as they are able to fire upon the player, while the player is being fired upon. Turrets can be hacked, using Autohacks or by solving puzzles. When hacked, turrets will return fire upon enemies, remaining neutral until it is destroyed. A destroyed turret will contain machine gun rounds, which you can take.
