No visuals yet, still working on playtesting internally
Turrets still shooting projectiles, but able to be destroyed while airborne
You still need to be sneaky where you throw/pre-place them
Teleporter requires a button to input a trigger
Works with both directions
You can toss it into an enemy zarya ult to pull your team out
