Skip it.

Please consider the score a reflection only on this DLC tower, and not Sanctum as a whole. I love the game, but this tower is pretty useless. Unless you get it as part of a DLC complete pack, I highly recommend skipping it.

If you can manage to deploy it perfectly it's a pretty good weapon, but not incredibly powerful. The real problem is how incredibly difficult it is to get it to work properly. You need to set it up so that it not only has a straight shot at a line of enemies, but so that it will ONLY have a straight shot at a line of enemies. More often than not it will fire at the lead monster, and as soon as that monster is at a diagonal to the tower it will fail to hit any of the other targets in the line. You practically have to plan your whole maze around how to make one or two of them effective, and for all that trouble you get a tower that will only be marginally more effective than one of the more basic towers that will be useful wherever you put it.

A great tower fortification ,that help you to destroy one strong foe with one shoot(if you fully upgrade it of course).It shoots a large laser ,but its very slow at firing range.It can be very useful if you are stuck in a later map,but its not a must have DLC.Its not weapon ;its a fortification for the tower built. Well if you have problems with a wave:Get it now!

This DLC pack adds the Penetrator gun to the game Sanctum by Coffee Stain Sutdios. Although the main game has only a few different guns, this pack does add some variety, though only for the first few hours. The Pentrator is almost like a rocket launcher, except much, much slower, a weakness that detracts from its value in in-game usage. Although it is nice to see some new DLC for Sanctum, I think that they could have put out a better and more useful gun.
