The ARC Trooper Bunker is a multi-purpose turret and is arguably one of the best turrets in the game. It deals a high amount of damage to droids and has an incredible range. This makes this turret ideal for taking down droids with a lot of health, such as the Super Battle Droid or the AAT. ARC Troopers are also equipped with grenades, which are useful for attacking droids that tend to emerge in small groups. On the downside, the ARC Trooper Bunker is the most expensive turret in the game and takes a considerably large amount of energy to upgrade even just to reach rank 2. The ARC Trooper Bunker is also one of the few turrets that can penerate a droideka's shield making it extermely effective aganist droidekas in Touchdown on Christophisis and similar stages. When upgraded to rank 3, the ARC Trooper Bunker gains the ability to fire anti-air rockets. These anti-air rockets deal more than twice as much damage as a shot form an anti-air turret, being able to take out STAPs in one hit and vulture droids in three. When the ARC Trooper Bunker is upgraded to rank 5, it becomes one of the strongest turrets in the game. Upgrading it to rank five gives it the ability to fire heavy weapons. The heavy weapons act similar to the Scatter Mines power up and is extremely effective against the toughest of vehicles such as the Homing Spider Droid or the Shield Generator. Anti-air rockets will also be able to take out Droid Tri-Fighters in a mere two hits.

Not many of your enemies would be willing to face down a guard tower full of elite ARC troopers!
On September 9, 2011, full-scale ARC Trooper Bunkers were released in the form of furniture, under the name ARC Trooper Turrets. There are five different variations of the ARC Trooper Turret, each following the color schemes of the ranks. They are also interactive, as the ARC Troopers will simultaneously fire their weapons when clicked on. ARC Trooper Turrets require Station Cash to purchase.
