"Some of our enemies are not visible using ordinary wavelength scanners. This technology investigates alternative scanning wavelengths."
X-Ray Scanner technology is an Applied research that allows all turrets to target Wraiths. While this research frees up time spent micromanaging Capacitors, it does reduce detection range of your turrets (the reduction is half the benefit of a Scanner).
Note that even with X-Ray Scanner, damage from turrets on ghosts is greatly reduced :
- Regular bullets are reduced to 1 damage, plus extra damage (from Reactor and Xenobiology), plus the AP rating. This greatly impacts rapid-fire turrets like the Spreader Cannon and Multi-Blaster.
- Explosives devices like Mines or Rockets will be reduced to 1 damage.
- The Laser and Disruptor are unaffected.
This means Wraith will be a lot more resilient than what you may normally expect from low-HP, unarmored titans.
