The '''Walking Turret''',{{YouTube|kaGfc4BfJwA|Animex 2012 - Karen Prell's "Animated Adventures in Portal 2" Part 3/6}} also referred as the '''Moving Turret''' or the '''Mobile Turret''', is a Aperture Science Personality Construct|Personality Construct-based Aperture Science Sentry Turret|Sentry Turret variant cut from ''Portal''.

== Overview ==

*The Walking Turret was first revealed to the public through a piece of concept art shown during the PotatoFoolsDay ARG|''PotatoFoolsDay'' ARG in 2011; further details were given in 2012 during a presentation by Valve animator Karen Prell at Animex 2012.

*Beside walking and shooting at the player, it was also apparently able to move through portals and turn into a ball to fling itself or be flung by unknown means. It is also possible that this "fling pose" could have been its idle state.

*According to Karen Prell, it was discarded in favor of a static turret facing only one direction, which was considered a better game mechanic by the team.

*Its Personality Construct-based design was kept in ''Portal'' for the Rocket Turret. Its walking animations were reused (among many others) as the basis for Wheatley's early locomotions animations in ''Portal 2''.
